Has anyone removed the plastic boiler shell from the Aristo Craft live steam Mikado to model a locomotive with a metal boiler, metal catwalk and metal cab?

How did you remove the plastic boiler shell ?

Photos of disassembled model ?

Photos of your new metal model ?

Thank you

Everything is done with the engine on it's back (wheels up)

Remove the 4 screws that hold the cab to the frame.

Remove the 4 screws that hold the boiler cover to the frame.

Turn the engine back on its wheels.

Remove the Cab first then remove the small screw where the smoke box and boiler cover overlap.

Then remove the boiler cover.

Hope this helps....
