Don't forget there is 20% VAT to add to thoseBlackgates prices which brings it to approx the 420 I stated. I added VAT to material costs.

Totally understandable, make sure it is the right shade of Green you don't want people giving you grief  ::)

Terry, if your love affair with the Clarkson is not over then I had a look at the drawings more closely last night and of the 24 castings I would say 10 are no more than round bits of metal and of the remaining 14 only 4 have some complexity about them the others being quite simple parts that you have shown you are more than capable of making with the Charlsworth.

Cylinder.
Could be cut from solid cast iron or built up from bronze/steel only needing two parts and it would allow you to make it a bit longer to give the piston some clearance at the ends which it does not have on the drawing :wallbang:

Trunk Guide
Just a turning job from steel with two blocks added to the sides to fix the legs to and some milling

Box Bed
at that size I would weld up the four sides from flat steel bar and slightly angle to represent casting draft then weld on a top from plate. Thick plate could have the mounting pads milled around or you could build up thinner plate by adding separate pads.

Legs
4 bits of steel, fabricate with bottom plate and plate that mates to trunck guide over thickness so they can be machined after fabrication, web is a cut and file to template as is the inner flange which also wants a bit of bending.

You could even paint it green if your heart is not set on grey with red pinstriping :Love:

Might even have a go myself, but need to finish off drawing ;)

I think that settles it Jason, thanks for the input.

Jo, I'm glad you said green.....coming from Plymouth it had to be GWR :)    I attatch an old photo of my late father-in-law, Roy Bryant, in his younger days firing his favourite King. Years later he retired as a top link man on 125s.

King Edward I  8)  Are you going to model it with the earlier single or later twin Chimney?


And when are they ever going to finish her Heavy Overhaul  :stickpoke:

What scale? A 7 1/4 will be about 10K boiler plus castings, A 5" nearer 4K for the boiler.

I thought you said cheap  :lolb:

Look forward to following the build(s), like the vertical there are really only 3-4 main"castings to the steeple that will need a bit of thought rest are more in teh way of cast bar stock.
