Help with a 3d model - steam engine locomotive

Hi everyone, I hope you can help me out here. I am trying to produce a model of a simple steam engine locomotive for education purposes. I have a basic model ready but I think there might be some issues - I noticed the tube is overlapping a little and there might be other things. I got a feedback that the front it maybe too long so the steam could not get through?
I know this is more of a train enthusiasts forum but I would like to get this as accurate as possible so the students can learn from a quality model.

I would therefore appreciate any help - if you could glance over and maybe mark up areas that are not quite right in your opinion, that would be fantastic. I though of asking here as this place must be full of train experts 😁

Thanks so much, hope everyone is having a great weekend!

Hello there. My friend is crazy about train modeling He sends me over an odd site with model railroad buildings and such, but mostly in HO scale. It is difficult to find much, which is good that he is invested in a 3D printer and Tinkercad, which is fantastic. He said that there are lots of videos on YouTube on how to create your own model. Sadly I have no idea how to do it. I have to ask him each time I need something.
