Thanks to some recent horsetrading I am now the owner of a part built

3.5" guage Firefly. Has anyone built this engine, and if so do you have any useful comments about things I should be aware of, any mistakes on the drawings, useful tips, etc.

oh bugger, here's a good tip. If you assemble a part built loco on the kitchen table and put the boiler on it then it will get quite heavy. If you then roll it backwards & fowards to show your curious son that the wheels all work it will gouge two grooves across the table. I'm in trouble when my other half gets back in!
