LB&SCR A1/A1X Terriers: Build Part 4, Cab

Now the outside is complete it's time to turn to the cab.
We didn't take any WIP pictures of the cab as it's not particularly interesting until it's complete.. so here it is, complete!

Firstly, much the same as the outside, the clean and simple looking A1 cab

And once the conversion to the A1X had occurred with a vacuum brake added for good measure then it got a lot more cluttered.

Some more comparison shots for various angles

And looking in from the fireman's side

And finally for today, adding them quickly to the outer loco model


And A1X

And that's about it for modelling. Time for the unwrapping - which is a lot less exciting than the unwrapping that's due in 20 days time for many of us!
Then it will be on to the texturing. First up will be Stroudley's very complex "Improved Engine Green"... we're not looking forward to doing that one!


  1. Wow. There is quite a difference between the two cabs! The A1 cab looks very unusual without the piping and gauges we usually know.

  2. Do you think you could do a live stream like mesh tools did and show us you modeling a loco or wagon?
