  1. I got the stage and its boom done and its rigging attached. I attached the cranks. pitman arms and paddle wheel which I had built previously.
  2. I attached the permanent rigging for both the stacks and the mast. I also installed the whistle and flue stack
  3. I got the stacks permanently installed and I am starting on the rigging for them.
  4. Thank you very much! It doesn't always look this way! I got the hog chains installed. Starting work on the smoke stacks and insignia .
  5. I finished the mast and boom but I think I'll wait to install them permanently until I've got the stacks in place. I went ahead and installed the braces for the wheel house.
  6. I started working on the knuckle joint for the boom and had the water shields for the stacks from styrene.
  7. I've been working on the bow. I attached the elevated sideboards ( I don't know what they are actually called). The bitts and capstan are finished and attached. I've started work on the mast.
  8. Eric it has inconsistent spacing and slats which are probably too wide ( although making the slats narrow would probably cause a different set of problems) and it is just kind of messy. I do think I could do a little better if I was to try again but then I don't know for certain.
  9. I got the handrailing done. It didn't turn out as well as I would have liked but it is what it is. On to the bow.
  10. I based the length of these trusses on a drawing in Alan Bates book This drawing was in the first few pages of the book but I can't say what page or figure number as i don't have it with me right now. That is to say no real reason other than his drawing ( i may shorten the middle one a bit) . I built a jig from which I'm building the boiler deck handrail so i'm wanting to complete it and a few other things before i go back to the chains.
