Hi, I based my tender on the Milner Hunslet design, but lengthened it to give my knees more room - basically the Milner water tank lengthened and a different plate frame chassis with home made cast iron axle boxes to house ball bearings. I wish now that I had also incorporated a foot well as I'm not as bendy as I was 20 years ago! If you look at Launceston Steam Railway website, their full size quarry Hunslet runs with a tender which would be a good place to start in my opinion. Hope this helps.
