'S' Scale Modeling NEW ZEALAND RAILWAY(NZR)

MY RAILWAY FROM THE GROUND UP "Modeling the Dream"

Ab Steam Loco Build

A selection of photos during the construction of my Ab steam loco, the kit by Online Models. Construction of the kit was not as easy as i thought it would main problem being the plans of construction and sequence of were not good, a sound knowledge of steam locos and putting that between the lines would have been easy but I don't have a sound knowledge of every detailed part. So some who count rivets may find bits or piping not correct. As I have found looking through lots of Ab photos many are different in their cosmetic makeup so I am not to concerned. End result is a nice looking and running loco on my layout.
