I am starting this thread only because I am traveling and I have the tender kit with me and my riveting tool. I really shouldn't be doing this but the thought of carrying a large and therefore non-portable tool kit/bench with me is, well, quite absurd. Just think how many parts I could lose along the way! As it is, riveting is a useful exercise in keeping me busy while waiting for deliveries of supplies, etc. I'll show some progress in the days ahead. The tender is a standard Collett 4,000 gallon one which is similar to the David Andrews one I just painted in primer for 5014 Goodrich Castle. It will be interesting to compare the two kits once I really get started on assembling the kit. Finney7 instructions are not exactly the same as David Andrews' are but both get the job done, F7 using photos, DA using isometric drawings. Note that the Hall is 4965 Rood Ashton Hall, now a preserved Tyseley loco. It currently runs with a 3,500 gallon tender but in my world it was based in 84E in 1957 with the larger tender.
