The top half will have 1/4" insulation behind it. The bottom half is for looks. A pattern was made for the tender steps by the person who started the K-36 project back in the mid 80s. I have the pattern for it. I have all the patterns for the K-36 in 1.5" scale and if anyone is interested in purchasing all the patterns, I would be willing to sell them.
Been working on the sand dome for the K-36. The body is machined out of Aluminum and the base is stainless steel sheet. The small brass oblong shape is for the delivery pipes. This piece is what I was looking for the 000-120 hex head screws for. Well I couldn't find any so I cut down the head of some 00-90s. A bit of work but they look much better. The smaller heads I cut down to 1/16" hex. The brass odd shape is the original manual operated sanders which are not used anymore. They do make an interesting feature. I still need to mount these details to the sand dome. https://www.chaski.org/homemachinist/do ... w&id=78797
Thank you Jack for your kind words. Her are some photos of the #6 Distributor valve I've been working on. It will be located under the cab on the engineers side. It is quite the puzzle with many separate pieces soldered together.
