Blame it on a rush of blood to the head

Well I said I wasn't going to touch 143's boiler details. Well that lasted one day before I decided to alter them. Frankly with the lovely NG143 plates coming I felt it would be disingenuous to add them to a loco that bore only a passing resemblance to the real thing.

The parts have been moved to their correct positions and once they have set I will add replacement piping. Washout plugs have been added and even a crew added.

Other areas that have been worked on have included the headlights and a mix of gunmetal/black for the smokebox.
