A Great Post A few comments on a great post Rivit counters......Huh! There was a chap in England who in the 1930 built a lot of live steam locos that were not absolute fine scale but gave a host of builders much pleasure, we have many of his loco types running at the club I belong to. At our club we have a seperate section devouted to Oil Engines ,over 50 in the collection many with those huge flywheels ,they provide some of our electricity and compressed air requirements, but I digress, that English gentleman had a saying " The fitness of things " meaning that it was all right to alter things to suit the looks. an example ,the contol valves on a loco...I dont have scale fingers...nuff said Want paint to stick to copper...first paint with an Etching Primer as used on cars. Enjoyed the post tremendously... a word of warning dont overdo the motion aspect.
