April 1, 2015 Update

I decided to hold off on the detail until I can get some more parts from BrinkLink so I figured I will give the coloring on the tender a shot.

This is my first attempt at doing the yellow/dark blue curve.  It turned out okay, but it is by no means the final version.  I used 1×2 jumper plates to make the curve more gradual, but then it left me with 1/2 stud gaps which I couldn’t figure out how to fill.

My original plan was to use cheese slopes snotted in to give me a smooth curve.  However, the pieces that I need to attach them do not exist in dark blue.  There are only headlight bricks and no bricks that have a stud(s) on the side.  There are not even any brackets in dark blue that will work.

I have a couple more ideas that I am going to try, but at least I got it started.  from a distance it doesn’t look too bad, but up close, ouch!  Plus I am lacking in dark blue bricks which is the reason for all of the black at the front.
