Super Nellie's instructions are now written and the first orders are away and so , here is another photo of the finished loco.
The coach/waggon chassis should be available in the next few weeks to be followed on, quite quickly, by the Festival Coach body.
My lay figure driver, who I have named Driver Firebrand, very much needed a tall Emett like cap, so I have mastered one and I am including one in every Super Nellie kit that is sold; as usual it is in vacuum cast resin but it is hollow and consiquently very light. I also plan and so far have succeeded including a suitable feather, courtesy of our local wood pigeons.
Driver Firebrand recently saw a screening of Jean Renoir's film Le Bete Humain and was very impressed with the Cheminots on the Nord and their goggles and managed to find a second hand war surplus pair which he has worn ever since. Time has now turned full cycle and he is presently regarded as being a Steam Punk. I am afraid that if you also want a pair for your driver, you will have to source them yourself.
