Would like to know how Bernard Foshage added 2 extra fire tubes? Thank You

When built correctly this boiler can produce more than enough steam for most models. For the experienced model builder, it can be a blank canvas of sorts. I’ve added additional “water” tubes (similar to Stuart’s 501 boiler) to the the bottom for added heating surface in addition to the 5 “fire tubes” I’ve also added a “super heater” that enters from the rear and comes out the side of the smoke box. A chimney blower to help induce draft if firing on wood or coal. Feed pumps, and mechanical injectors are just a few more accessories compatible with a “custom build” of this model. Very happy with this model!
