Hey Y'all;

Decided that brass or copper capped coal burner stack would look better behind old time box headlight if stack were lengthened a bit.

Here's photo story of how it is being done. A bit of Evergreen styrene tube wrapped with strips of .015 or .010 sheet styrene, then filled and sanded.

Not sure how much tube will extend into smokebox. Kind of doesn't matter since with asthma and chemical sensitivities in the household I'm taking smoke unit out since can't use it anyway.

There's probably other ways to do the job; that's what I figured out to do with what is on hand.

Just a couple photos tonight, more to come.





That's all for now. Probably a day or tow before there is more progress.

In looking at ways to fill the join between extension and stack I'm going to try something seen in military and sci fi modeling articles - take a it of liquid glue and dissolve chopped up shavings of sprue or other plastic in ti to make a thin paste.

We'll see how it goes.

thanks Emster!

the filler went well, took longer to cure than had expected.
Stack has been primed.
No telling when weather will allow spray painting again.
