LOL, yes I did say I would post some pics didn't I.   I have plenty to post . Yes Bruce the 12" to the foot has  been very busy.  I have been busy today fabricating the water tank lid, and the neck under it.  Going to go weld it  together now. I will try and post some pics tomorrow.  I had to break away from the side sheets and get this  lid and neck built.  So the sheet metal shop could use it as a template for the stainless tank neck that will come up into the decorative one .

pic of angle iron being welded to the top and bottom of the coal  bunker.  The top angle will support the tender lid and the bottom angle will be welded to the tender floor tying them together.

neck is bent, ended up with a small gap to fill.  The piece of plate under the neck will be cut into the base plate of the hatch. Ray III

pic of the lid casting as it was originally.  I have a great set  of drawings  of the I.C. mike from a 1987 model railroader mag.  It shows a more squared off lid.  I am not rivet counting , but will try to have it as close as I can.  Ray III

first welds on the base. I am going to weld all the way around the base, then try and grind part of it off . To give it a cast one piece look.  Like Greg was doing with the weld and then milling part of it off. I don't have a mill, so the 4 inch angle grinder will go to work.  I thought about just tack welding it from the inside ,and not welding the outside. but really wanted the one piece look. I hope it turns out  like I am wanting it to. Ray III
