Looking very nice, indeed :thumbright:
What attracted my attention though (and is puzzling me) are four bolts on the axleboxes (inside).
What are these about?

Why don't you use hex bolts Dave out of interest?

Thanks lads :thumbup:

I like roundheads to represent the abundant rivets on the original

The four bolts hold on the separate back plates, I didn't have thick enough stock for the usual milled flange arrangement

understand,thank you (although I'd have probably silver soldered it to get the right thickness?).
Having said so, there is no right or wrong way of doing it :D
