      Bill, that's turning out super.  I especially like how you did the builders plate.

      Thanks Rick, a little undersized but couldn't figure out how to print bigger, wasn't my idea it came from a fellow on MLS who suggested the way, but pleased with the out come, I'm definitely not a rivet counter just like it to look right

      Still working on numbering, got the smoke box plate numbered along with the sand dome, added some Jax pewter black to the bell rope and have made a plate for the center of the cab where I can run my wiring, sort of like a tunnel and is removable using magnetic tape so removal is easy. Have gotten the R/C board along with battery and charging board fitted in the tender section and might have room to place a sound board in there also, pretty small space. If I can do it I will place the speaker in the roof of the cab as I have used this location before with good results, more to come, Bill

      numbering done

      This build just keeps on adding up nicely.
      This being November heading in to the winter season, at least in this hemisphere, its bright hues would look grand against a snow background.

      They don't get a whole lot of snow down in Ormond Beach , FL.

      Not very often but I do remember snow down here several times, and once there was enough to have a short snowball fight.

      done

         Well with the MIK challenge finished I think it's time to turn my attention back to unfinished projects, still on the burners is "old Joe" and my Mason Bogie. Before the MIK I was able to temporally install the R/C system which I'm using a gscale graphics unit, took it to a friends house who has a standup railroad and ran it, wow was I pleased it ran perfectly and the articulation worked better than I hoped, even negotiated 1100 S curves and switches, only down side was 1 turn I showed a little wheel slippage but think it was because of un even track and tight curve but I've added additional weight any ways, also looking for another traction tire wheel for the other side. Have managed to cram all the electronics into the tender area and left now is just cleaning up the wiring, after Old Joe is finished, Just headlight wiring to do, I think I will paint up a combine car for the Mason and that will give me a 3 car train and with the engine being 2' long that's going to be enough, More to come, Bill
