I have gone as far as I want on this model of an old steam locomotive.  As always, a lot was learned through mistakes and errors.

That is wonderful work with a great amount of detail. Can I asked, how to you come up with that? Did you used drawings, photos, or physical models?

PS:  Maybe you could go farther if the tracks were longer ;D ;D. Ha Ha. Just playing.
