The last few days working on the B16 have been spent on making up the rather prominent cylinder crain cocks and their operating mechanism from the ends of JLRT coach vacuum or some such pipes of which I had four in my spares box and scrap etch. I also made up and fitted the rear sand pipes.

Tonight I reassembled it and took the following photos before dropping it off at Warren's for painting.

Thanks Pete,

Sadly this one isn't mine. After painting it will be heading off back to it's owner. I do plan to add one to my kit stash at some point though.
