Thank you Mike, I think you are right about leaving the unfinished parts as they are . Its to cold in our garage now to do any fine work and the roof leaks so need to get that fixed a.s.a.p.  Its been very helpful and encouraging to talk to all the great members of this site. So I may ask them for help on a couple of more of my engines as I am a beginner on large live steam engines after collecting steam locos and boats ,which I have now sold to fund this hobby

Success - you "made it stick" (the photo) this time  :cheers:

Another nice picture of the plant  :praise2:
I'm guessing that it is either a crusher and sorter or heat / dryer treatment + sorter  :thinking: though my first thought was a cement factory - but the first section is not nearly long enough ....

Best wishes

Hi Alan, I was about to reply but Admiral DK beat me to it.

If you are on Apple iPad, I find mailing pictures to myself reduces them enough, so save the received pictures and those will post.

The other one I use that you may have is Adobe Elements.  You can open the picture then save it for the Web.  This gives you very quick and easy access to some sizing options.

A great model.  Shows the original like new, which does not last long, then normal appearance.  They don't look new for long, I think they try to save too much money on paint.

By the way, welcome to the forum.  You will find plenty of friends here.

Hi Alan,
 Welcome aboard!
That a neat model! The before shot Jason put up looks like it would have been pretty quick in real life. You've put a lot of work into it, who ever gets it from you is going to be lucky!

On the picture resize front I use Picshope Lite, from the App Store on my iPad works fine.

Cheers Kerrin 
Get excited and make something!
