This was one of the eye catchers at the 2020 Alexandra Palace exhibition. Paul Tomlinson bought the chassis for this British Rail 9F Evening Star 92220 and completed it in two years. Using works drawings he re-drew them in CAD: Turbocad 2D and Fusion 3D and used dxf files to produce laser cut  platework. Parts were also milled on a CNC mill using a CAM program within Fusion 360.

A 3D model was produced for a number of parts which were printed in wax by a friend in New Zealand and cast in silicon bronze. That has allowed close detailing.
