This is a 3mm scale model of a Furness (& Cambrian) Railway Tender, re-scaled and re-designed in areas from the 4mm version.
Important note: At the front of the tender frames there is a cut out and on the insides are the two areas sprued on as an optional filler. If building the Cambrian tender these holes need to remain, if building the Furness tender then these need glueing in the frames so as to make the frames flush. A smearing of filler will hide the join line.
Tool boxes are sprued on top.
The water filler cap and toolboxes are sprued on to allow you to choose your style and position, again based on prototype variation.
The main coal space which is above the tender is loose to give access to the tender inside should you wish to add weight or electronics such as DCC chips etc. There are wheel cut outs to give a little extra clearance if needed depending what wheel sizes you opt for.
Hand rails are made by using 0.3mm rod or similar and hand rail pillars. Drill holes and either glue or melt them in as needed.
