25: smokebox

Since the last update I took the time to almost completely “rebuild” the existing model. More on that later.

Now the smokebox is added to the model with the T-pipe and distinctly curvy steam pipes inside. The exhaust nozzles are also added. And of course, the very distinguished balloon stack that is prominent of the CK Holliday.

The stack is made of No 10 gauge sheet metal in 6 segments. Is it a welded construction but it features faux rivets at the seams. And although it is diamond shaped, the actual exhaust stack is straight. The diamond/balloon outer shell is supposed to allow for attachment of sparks arrestor. But the CK Holliday (and all of DLR engines) being an oil (diesel) burner, it doesn’t actually have this device.
