NGG16 news

Here is an amend to the backwoods kit. The early NGG16s (like No. 87 which was of the first batch) had no window in the back of the cab and it was also smaller. Thus I had to chop about the cab, add some brass from behind and add filler. The filler is yet to dry, after which it will be filed back, but you get the idea below.

The boiler cradle was also put together, the sides were laminated, a central spine added and then two tanks added underneath.
Also details on the tanks (which are for 138) are being added - here the sandbox pipes and lamp irons are on.
and the same on the front tank, but with two grab handles added too.
