I am starting the thread on the Belly Tank, although I don’t think I will be starting on this kit for a little while…. I will probably get the bracket out to see how it fits with the cutouts that I have enlarged slightly on the cladding, and then it will be packed up for a few weeks at least, before I start. Apparently there are 400 small bolts for this kit , and some fettling to be done. Pictures will follow when I get off and running.

Not a great start to this kit as the belly tank bracket is the wrong size… I e-mailed (the very helpful) Will, and it seems that I have a “Modified” bracket, which is too wide for the threaded holes in the boiler….. so Will is going to send me one of the “original” design brackets. Hopefully that will sort the issue.
