K-4 Smokebox Detail

Post by ebtfan » Fri Dec 08, 2017 6:11 pm

Hello all. Have been finishing some of the detail work on the K-4. Have recently finished the addition of the running boards, handrail brackets, and marker lights. Just starting work on the exhaust stand and blast nozzle. Would be interested in any information regarding fabrication of an exhaust stand!

Wish I was that far along. Whos smoke box casting is that or did you make it from scratch? Very nice. Don't you have a builders blue prints such as Moore or Mercer? I posted a GN nozzle print a few days back if that might help....

The most beautiful face of the K4s locomotive. Classic Pennsy!
