Just Ladders Left

I'm about ready to begin painting the water tank wagon.

Since the last update I've added a few more of the final details including the vacuum pipes and, in a very fiddly operation, soldered on some tiny lengths of brass wire to represent the levers on the valves on either end of the tank outlets.

The pipes were not straightforward either because on one end the outlet pipe passes behind the hose and I had to do it in such a way that the tank can still be taken off for painting - it won't be fixed down until the very last moment when I will also add the ladders.
