Have you followed the procedure set out in the first post on the image board if you have then the picture should appear. Remember you need to have the picture hosted somewhere because proboards doesn't actually host pictures it only provides a link to point to somewhere on the web where the picture is stored. Hope this is helpful George

I use the attachment box that appears when you reply to a message, here is what is planned for tonight. I agree with Jo, I will not go in to the workshop with any trace of drink in me but as it was -10 last night and we have 18" of snow the desire to go and freeze has passed me by. Better to sit by the wood stove, read a book and plan for the next machining job.
I am not sure what I would recommend more a my new house lathe or a good bottle of Italian wine for the cold winter evenings.
.... Hmmmm: I will plan to start with using the lathe and work up to a a glass or two of red wine as commiserations if it goes wrong, or to celebrate when it goes right. Either way I cannot see a bottle of wine lasting the evening, as you know wood stoves cause such terrible evaporation .
(Sorry routledgeg we have hijacked your thread.. have you tried copy pasting the link to your photo identified by <IMG...> to the webpage? It should work)
Jo, I agree but I can't drink at lunchtime as I then sleep away the afternoon. Once I finish in the workshop for the evening then I stand by my statement, you can't have too much red wine! ;D I'm on my third glass and considering another! Cheers! ;D

Now here's something you wont see on Jamie Perriers Britannia drawings is the rear end of a BR1 tender. The tender baseplate has pieces cut out to allow a shackle to be thrown up and a further smaller cutout to allow clearance for the vacuum bag to be piped up to a wagon.
I like your method of holding the smokebox in the vice, very ingenious! I also notice the most important thing of all sitting on the bench, a mug of tea.
When we think of all the Britannia models that have been built, it's great that someone has at last decided to tackle a Clan. They were handsome locos and have been ignored as models for far too long. Power to your elbow, sir!
