I really like the look and feel of the General, it has a longer better shaped boiler to my eye.
Was a fun build, made with birch and a touch a oak.
I used Narm Marshall’s toy book plans to get the shape then went off and used a little Toys and Joys and the General at Gatto is in there too.
Always have fun filling the cab with doodads, following the ideas I got from Ducky. :=]
