Well, that's because I had guys like you giving me good advice along the way. I'm not new to modeling. I've been building R/C planes all my life. I just never built anything like this before. And... I deliberately chose a simple project. I learned long ago that starting simple makes for an encouraging first experience. Now I'm already looking at how I can modify a Bachmann on30 2-6-0 into a 1:35 scale Baldwin 2-6-2T like those used in WWI.

That project comes after the full diorama I intended to build for this critter but the thought process has already started. By the time I actually convert that loco ill have worked out a lot of the issues of the conversion in my mind.

Thanks for the compliment, BTW....
