Work to date is to an exceptional standard throughout; fit and finish of machined parts is excellent, the silver soldered copper boiler neatly flanged and put together with good solder penetration - it's had a twice working pressure hydraulic test for 80psi working, with certification issued for same.
The locomotive requires minor finishing work and painting, it has the potential to make a very fine model.
