The correct shields (?) arrived today. Custom made by Sven from the Tramfabriek. A Dutch guy living in England.
This is just fabulous.

I agree, it's going to be quite the tram engine when you've finished with it! Looks pretty close to me - got to be almost there! Spectacular job of scratch building.

Thanks! Yes it is almost finished. Need to make a few lanterns. And add the hoses and chains. Then it’s ready for paint.

They look beautifully made. Eton Wick is about 8 miles away from me. Probably "plates" rather than "shields" but there may be a better word.
