Little Devil.

A one piece casting in white metal captures the GWR Fire Devil perfectly. As part, or separately, of the Water Tower kit this piece of aparatus was seen all over the GWR network.
It does what it says on the tin- keeps water cranes from freezing up during the extremes of winter. A small fire was lit in the base to provide heat and hot air kept the water in the crane liquid.
Usually seen rusty, this example has been painted with Revell acrylic Dark Leather with a little lighter rust dry brushed over.
