Toby in the Workshop 6

Top to Bottom: Boiler, rear cab back, front cab back.
Work on Toby has stalled lately. I've still got to tidy up and paint the cab and window openings.
Meanwhile I've fabricated backs for both cabs and started work on the boiler.
The cut out in the front cab back is for the Toby's eye mechanism.
The boiler is being made from 38mm plastic waste pipe. The smoke box and firebox have been made from a No More Nails container.
Toby can't have a complete boiler because of the location of the motor and gearbox. Also enough room is having to be left to add the battery pack, sound and R/C components.
