      And within 30 minutes after you install Nick's bell, and only if and when you do install it, the lost one will re-materialize right in plain sight.

      Oh, I hate it when that happens. But I am glad to know that I am not the only one it happens to.

      new bell

      New bell arrived today and has been installed thanks to new friend in NJ, and no I haven't found the other one yet. Really adds to the look of the top side and only thing left up there is adding a leaver and rod for the sand dome, more to come

         sand dome partsAdded a little more detail, put a coat of matt on the bell so it would match the brass domes on the steam and sand dome, also installed a leaver at the base of the sand dome along with an activation rod, think I'm pretty much done with the boiler detail except for the builders plates which I have been experimenting with and so far nothing has worked. Had some brass paper that I tried printing on from an image of a real mason bogie plate which looked good on regular white paper but wasn't dark enough to show up well on the brass, might use the sticker end of a 38 caliber shell cartridge, just have to see, till then, Bill

      She keeps on coming together bit by bit.
      If it were my model, now that the bell has been matte coated, I'd paint the molded-on hanger and pull rope lever black like the rest of the bracket.

      After about 32 ounces of coffee, and 5 cigarettes, my hand is rock steady. The item I am painting however......it just keeps moving around.

      Haven't painted the bell parts yet but got the sand dome rod blackened and being as I didn't have a picture of it all together as it is usually all in pieces, I took a shotstarbord side
