yes...and how about some old gasoline to come sloshing out of the tank? You know, in  large scale, you HAVE to show detail like that. In other words, you have come this far-go all the way! "It ain't braggin' if you can do it".  Very cool, Dave.

Thanks guys!

LOL I have always liked that quote..I think it went.... " It ain't braggin if you can back it up!?" :bg:


This is the actual beast Tom Yorke used for inspiration for the drawing I am going by.






It's from New Zealand ....It figures!! ;)  :c2:



I got the mounts worked out before I went to work today but didn't have time to take pics and post so here it is with the gnarly mounts attached.








And to get an idea how it will look when it is attached,  here it is set in place.







I like it!! :pimp::pimp::pimp:

Uhhh...I think REALLY dark glasses maybe...:yuck:

But I gotta say that is some really nice solder work. I know it's fairly large scale but the work is definitely first class.  :thumb:

I Agree! Very nice brass bashing Dave!

I thought that you were just "winging" it but I see that you have a plan---

Yep it it the same mechanism as I used on the Freerails loco, from a Bachmann On30 trolley car.


I got the muffler and exhaust built now.




Paint is drying on the fuel tank and I hope to get the brake lever built this evening as well.  :mex:

Dave-I just don't know about this loco. I think you need to finish it and send it to me so I can get an "up close" look at the thing. By the way, the exhaust pipe and muffler looks better than the one on my motor home, send me that also. You are just doing too much work, you need a break and I will take care of your lokie for a while.
