Fireless Narrow Gauge Engine - part three

Progress has been slow, but here is the latest update.....

The sandboxes have been constructed from layers of thick plastic card and detailed with scraps and bits from the 'spares box'. The dome was built up from a section of plastic tube (a Revel airship), wrapped in plastic card and topped with more thick plastic card. The shape was defined by hand sanding and polishing in the chuck of a Black & Decker hand drill. Once attached the fluting was finished with some Milliput Green/Grey and when fully cured this was also hand sanded with fine sand paper wrapped around the handle of a paintbrush.
