Hi Greg,

The top rol is visible on the painting, see the small blackline before the middle main lamp. The top roll is shorter as the dolphins on the edges are integrated into it. You can see this on the Chapman drawings. I considered to do this but had to alter a lot to nicely incorporate it and this meant I had to dismantle a lot to fit it.
On the quarter windows I think the aots drawings are logical. Symmetri is important in this era so if there is a carving in the rear you also would expect one in the front. See below the chapman drawing.

If you zoom in you do see the top roll and a carving in front of the window.

When I was googling at Maarten's brilliant version of his chimney stack for his Royal Caroline. It got my brain thinking and I came up with my own variation, to Maarten's fantastic result.
This can be done while still doing my home renovations.
Firstly the pieces in the kit has to be trimmed and sanded to make the stack more circular.

As you can see it has to be sanded to make it circular.

A marking lines was drawn so it can be used as a reference on how much these piece has to be altered. After about 3 or 4 sanding processes, the shape was more to my liking.

I decided to 'hollowed' out each piece to allow for future possibilities.

Rought removal of the inside.
When they were hollowed out enough they were glued together, and place into clamps for about 3 hours.

The top wasn't clamped enough so it was placed into another one for extra tightness.

I decided to show my chimney stack as it were made from sections, rather than a single piece.

The stack was drawn with horizontal line to represent the sections.
I decided to chisel away the top of each section to allow for my ideas.

Thanks for watching and stay tuned for more on this subject.

The hollow chimney gives you the option of a smoke generator. That would be a marvelous addition.
Thanks mate for your like and guess..........
..........what I'm planning is only to put LEDs : 3 in fact, yellow, blue and red, together they should make a brown light. I was planning to put a 'fluff' of cotton wool coming out of the spout. I'm hoping to make a static smoke display.
