It is a mature achievement to reproduce such a complicated mechanism with so little documentation.

Thanks for all the comments guys.  It's certainly a "head scratching" model. After getting past the complex gears part went on to start the coupling rods. Something I thought would be simple and straightforward took four attempts, 1: too thick a looking piece of styrene, 2: axle hole too large, 3: modelling knife cut in wrong place,4: success!!    Perhaps I should take up knitting instead, pass another valium please!

Do you really want to end up looking like our Max -quote from Ray "looks like he has been on a bender" (see blue note room )

A couple of quick progress shots. The cooling "tower" is now complete. On the original there was a spiral of pipework which water flowed through to cool the cylinder (thats the small pipe going down to the cylinder, the large pipe is the exhaust). Its a bit front heavy at the moment but should balance out when the rest of the "cab" detail is added. The water pump has been fitted on the far side of the cylinder, now working on the control gear (forward/reverse and clutch levers). Progress has stalled a bit as my local model shop is still closed so having to mail order stuff.  At only a 7 minute walk away it was useful for that odd bit of styrene needed for a specific part. I've decided to mount the whole "beast" on a low-loader on the diorama (in the background) as though it is being shipped away somewhere, Shapeways came up with some wheels I can modify to represent solid-tyred wheels on a "knock-out" rear axle of a vintage low loader.

Your model gets better and better with every step.
