Agree with Gaz
The PE on the fill caps really reflect a steampunk theme !
Nice work !

Thanks for the kind comments and encouragement, fellows  

And another thanks for the kind comments for the fill caps - I wasn't sure if the idea would work so it's nice to hear it looks ok (hard to be objective about one's own stuff and all that).  Now the only problem is to resist the urge to spatter ivy leaves onto any spot where they'll fit, lol.


Puttering along - added 'nut and bolt' details to the rear and front tank mounts.




The beginning of the PE detailing for the secondary water tank.  Similar in theme to the main water tank but a slightly different approach.


The smaller water valve for the secondary tank, mostly scratched, but I retained the second 'wing nut' from the kit valve for use here.  A comparison shot with the main tank valve.


Test fit of the valves in place, the secondary is slightly higher then the main to allow for gravity feed.  And a bit more of the PE added as well.


And a bit more PE.


I'm still undecided as to whether I'm going to add embellishment to the fuel tank in the form of decoration or 'practical' details. Then there's the fill cap and feed valve for the fuel tank to make as well.  

The instrument panel is percolating - I'm still trying to nail down what I want to have featured there in terms of gauges but one thing I'm not putting in is a speedometer/odometer.  Why no speedo? Well, getting into the Steampunk Ethos thing it occurred to me that Safety was not on top of the priority list in the early days of experimental vehicles and a lot of the stuff we take for granted today would have been considered unnecessary back-when. Plus this way I don't have to make the speedo cable and whatever sort of assembly would be needed to get the reading.

Just keep swimming ...
