Whilst finish is in places "off the machine" with no attempt to polish or smooth edges, fit is good - the chassis turns over smoothly without tight spots and runs in either direction on air. Some time spent with files and emery would repay the effort.
The boiler appears well made, with neatly formed plates and good solder penetration. Firebox is bushed for a fusible plug.
Reeves stock remaining castings and drawings, Model Engineers Laser can supply a wide range of profiled parts, including the running boards and cab.
