Stephenson's "Rocket"

This is a 00 gauge model made up from a Dapol kit...
re-run of the old Airfix one.
It is sitting on a bit of 'track' I made from mixed-materials.

An old collector card of the Rocket as she was in later years of service.

decided not to use the large retaining button...which means if you run it along a bit vigorously the rod comes off the wheel...but no worries! The little pistons move with the wheels!

unfortunately the dapol kit is grey...the Airfix used to come in a yellow you could leave I guess. As I was using acrylics, this meant I had to prime the whole thing with a light coat first.
