I hope they release one in BR grime livery, complete with worthless coal, leaking packings everywhere and valves completely out of time. Being overtaken by a diesel.

Anyway, just throwing this out here: I'm in need of reference pics of the footplate. Especially the little 'cupboards' left and right of the firebox. Anyone good enough at french to try and convince someone in mulhouse to climb aboard 2.670?

I actually think it isn't as terrible as you'd think at first sight. Although - all the later pictures show various oiling points having been moved to more convenient locations.

The french compounds where considered the pinnacle of steam in there day and you can see the brilliance of the design in your model
Love the detail and texturing, the links look like a steel object, nice work can wait to see this in my engine shed.
Look forward to see La France roll down the mainline to Plymouth which is where they where set to work as a comparison engine for GJ's engine development. As brilliant as the engines where they must have been a maintenance nightmare and show how sharp a mind GJ and the team at Swindon had to take the best principles of the day and create a brilliant series of engines in the 4 cylinder express engines of the GWR and ultimately the UK. Love your work keep bashing digital metal and inspiring us. Cheers Ausc.
