You really did do a terrific job capturing the features of this locomotive, particularly the nose and trailing truck. Compared to other streamlined steamers, I find this one not to my liking but a great model nonetheless.

looks great to bad it would be pricy to build in real bricks because of all of the silver parts, Unless a can of spray paint doesn't phase you.

Pretty sure you'd wind up having to chrome just about all the silver parts.

I dislike steam, but by golly, if this were a TLG kit I'd buy it.  Fantastic job; you should be extremely proud of this design.  It'd be great to see it in real bricks sometime.

That's a great build on a very tricky prototype. Interestingly enough, the tender shrouding was designed to be a faux Budd car and blend smoothly with the rest of the train (but the cars were never placed in service and instead were sold off to other railroads)
