    I've had to put the jinty to one side for the moment as I can't find the crank pins so I've decided to make a start on the Beames some parts can be made up while I wait for the wheels and in case you were wondering yes you can see through the grills

    I have to say that it terrifies me building a loco on this forum when you look at what others are doing

    Not sure why, I don't recall other 2mm locos being built here so your work is incomparable. From my very limited 2mm scratchbuilding experience making a loco look good (in proportion and with scale details) in 2mm is harder than in 7mm. And you are taking photos of the rear end of a loco that is as big as your fingernail so we can see more than will ever be visible on a layout. I, for one, want to see more as the build continues.

    I completely agree. Please keep posting John - I've a 2mmFS Coal Tank to build at some point so I'm keen to see your progress on this Beames Tank. If I can include the detail that you have then I'll be more than happy.

    We've just Finnished a big kitchen refurb and I had a few bits of ply left over so I've cut the track base for the viaduct

    This is the first mock up for the viaduct but hopefully it will give you an idea where I'm hoping to go with this
    The screws will be taken out as they were just holding it together while the glue set
