May seem like overkill but here are a few more. Pick the best if you need them. (Camera is on its last legs) :'(

That is a great help thanks, more use than anything I have found in months of looking. I gave up on scanners when the third one in three years clapped out but from your photos I can get dimensions easily enough. I will not be going in to great detail but just want to put the major bits, cabins and skylights, wheel etc in the right places. Cheers, Ian.

Chocky 35,

Hello mate.
Sorry about the late reply.
Yes, I did steam some of the planks and some I used a plank bender that I got from some model shop. I forget which one but if you need the address, I am sure I could post it for you. The only thing with the bender is that it does leave a mark on one side and if you press too hard, you quite easily get a mark on the side that is on show.
Hope that helps a bit.

Ron.
