In other words scale hopping again ! with 30 years plus of 1/35th bits in the stock box what else I asked. The Compressor Shack built from reclaimed timbers found on the site of the old mine (out of the stock box) the shack will house a large compressor with storage tank - and facilities for repairing compressors  threading of pipe work and valve repairs - will also re-fuel the air locos and store spares.

Ray -  the cog wheel is a 1/35th Russian Tank wheel with Evergreen strip for the teeth - the base is Lego Blocks
Les _ yes the Rad is scratch built - for the smaller scales I use 20 thou or 30 thou Evergreen rods on a Styrene base the Header tanks top & bottom is Evergreen strip - nuts & bolts are Master Class

For Larger scale I think a bit more detail is required -I use 3 layers of Micro Mesh the one in the middle a different type - in a styrene frame Micro mesh is from
https://www.modeldisplayproducts.co.uk/index.php?route=common/home (note in the wrong packets brass is in the steel) or https://historexagents.com
do the Aber version in smaller packets

Thanks for all the info, I'm in the middle of building a "rusting Ruston" loco in 16mm scale and exposed engine details are important in that size.
