Tending To The Tender

I try to keep all the negative space pieces from MDF kits to use “some day”. I found two pieces of scrap to use as doors for the engine cab. I’m just dry fitting them in place with tape, to live with the idea. I may remove one or both.

The original kit does not come with a bottom cover for the tender. (I’m calling this part a tender, If any train enthusiasts know better, please correct me.) I used left over 1mm card to fill in the gap. I cut a wide piece to length and then bent it around my x-acto knife to get the quarter round shape. I then traced the width line and cut it out. turned it around and did the same thing again. I then super glued it into place.

Next I poured glue into the hooper and added little grains of rock. Put it aside to dry at a 45˚ angle so that the grains don’t run out into the cab.
