**   Here is what I have been working on for most of the last 2 weeks. A reworking of a old mantua Bell of the Eighties.  
* I got the old paint striped off. Repainted Russian Iron and different greens. Original tender had a section of the tender cracked off. I have a Akane-Gem spare tender to use. I replaced the steam dome, and the painted sand dome. I replaced the bell and headlight with decorative Kemtron parts. I put on a shorter draw bar. The cab looks bad having no detail. And that split cab keeps separating and the roof gets loose. Need to get a better cab.  
* Here is the boiler detail now.
