Hi all, just wanted to say hi to other builders out there. Currently working through the build, been impressed with quality of components and fit. No access to craftmaster paints so doing best i can with resources i have. Interested to hear from any other builders.West Australian Build 20190911

Nigel, when you fit all the bits to your boiler you will be afflicted with that facial disorder commonly called "Boiler Grin".
Very difficult to get rid of and gets worse the first time in steam!

Yes, boiler has just arrived. I live in a very remote part of Australia so kits take a little longer to get here.

Hi all, progress certainly comes about once the boiler and a few other bits arrive. Good to get some final assembly under way. Pictures to come.

Hi Mark
Engine looks fantastic.
Just 1 observation, in your photo of the crank shaft you seem to have painted the inside edge part of the crank were the big end bearing fits.
As the clearances in this area are real tight this might cause a problem when the connecting rod turns up.

This is my 4 inch roller but the 2 inch aggy is similar its just half the size.
I dont suggest you rush to removing the paint until the big end arrives but worth remembering for when it does should it give a problem.
