Aster Mikado Kit

I am going to be getting an Aster Mikado kit from Royce. After the Huckleberry steamup, where I got to run Fred Gandolfi's Aster Mikado I really found out how much fun alcohol firing was and what engine I really wanted. Do any of you guys have any tips for building the Aster Mikado kit? I did get the axel and tender pump kit.

You give up way too easy.... You are willing to return your engine after you spent all that time building it, for something as simple as chipped/flaking paint on a small area? If you get derailed that easy, and find necessary to go off publicly on MLS like that, then live steam is probably not a good idea... I wish I had problems that minor. I would have repainted it like Fred did and got on with running trains.
