Here are the last two photos before I start painting and adding the last of the parts. The wheels will be removed so the wheels and the frame can be painted by themselves. The water tank will be glued on to the boiler before painting. I have the bell and a light for the rear coming from Trackside Details. The cylinder casting is one of the harder pieces there is to model on this type of locomotive.

Nice!  What do you use to hide the grain in the wood parts?  I guess thick CA?

Even in this unpainted step, this is a fabulous model. Like Marty, I could watch it for hours.

Thanks guys for your comments. Dave I use a thin CA on wood parts that needs the wood grain hidden.

Here's two photos of the frame finished and painted.

Gordon, on your locos, how do you attach the cab? Is it usually removable? If so, do you prefer to remove the entire cab, or attach the front wall permanently and make the rest removable?

Ray, Only 3 out of my 14 locos have removable roofs and none have a removable cab. Removable roofs are sometimes necessary but they are always very hard to model. The closed cabs on my work trucks do need removable roofs so you can see the interior. Any model with a full interior like a caboose or building I will go to the extra work to make the roof removable. The cab on this Dickson is very open so there is no reason to have a removable roof.

Almost got this one finished. Still needs some added work in the cab and the cab still needs to be glued on to the floor. After this work is finished I'll take and post  more photos.
