Hope I don't upset any Coors Light drinkers, but an old fellow here in Texas wondered what was in the "beer" and sent a sample to Texas A & M labs. Two weeks later he got a letter stating-"sorry sir, but your horse has lukemia.



LMAO!!

That was good!


OK......Just for Herbski-Boudreaux............

Woodrow, I think you have cast a spell on pour old Dave. He and I were talking yesterday and he commented on how much fun you and I were having with larger scale and RC… Then he asked me for a little more info on RC WITH BUTTONS.

I think he’s coming over to the dark side.

Dave-she's looking good. Now, where are you going to "hide" the battery & receiver? And how about a couple of "rubes" on board. Of course there will be tools and stuff all over the loco. Do you have a layout for all this cool stuff? These and other questions will be asked by Geraldo Rivera later on "Ask Dave"....

PS-the gearshift knob is priceless! As Hannibal Smith once said-"I love it when a plan comes together."

Easy Cowboy easy!! :cb:

I never said I was going to do any of that on this.

I was just asking Bob for some information is all. :Hmm:


I now have the detail bits I have completed installed alond with some braces for the uprights on the cab and a back rest.




















I also started working on a clutch pedal for it.

Dave, very nice job on the build so far, the metal bench supports are they just blackened metal or are they painted somehow, if painted could you share the color? Thanks Pat

Dave-you may not power your new lokie with "proper" propulsion, but you have really, truly joined the "dark side" with this model. The detail you are making is very, extremely, wonderfully well-done and she looks like something that needs to be entered in contests. Well, then-have you got an "engineer" and any other rubes in the works? It would be sinful to cover up the seat with some guy's rear end, so think about standing figures-maybe one of em' drinking something like Jack Daniels. I believe in "real life", piloting a machine like this would drive a man to drink.

Thanks guys!



When I grow up, I wanna be just like you!
DON'T DO IT KENNY!!!!!

( Grown ups suck!!! ) :bg: LMAO!


Boo-der-oh,

This just might see a contest table this fall. ;)

As this is a Gn15 lokie, there will only be room for one operator in the cab.


This guy.















That's not to say there won't be another rube as a ride along though. :pimp: :thumb:

You may even recognize him.....but that's for later...stay tuned. :mex:



Pat,

For the supports I used brass flat stock that I cut and bent.

Then I sprayed the bits with some Krylon flat black spray paint.

When that was dry I dipped a brush into some Dirty brown Bragdon powder ( I forget the exact name I'll look for it. ) and whatever stuck to it, I tapped into a dimple dish.

To the powder I added about 4 drops of iso alcohol and made a slurry.

Then I  drizzled that onto the bits with the brush.

I didn't "paint" it on, but rather, I scraped the brush on the edge of the bit, and let the alcohol drip run down the piece and carry the powder with it, so as not to get any visible brush strokes in the powder.

When the bit was coated, I dried it with a hair dryer to lock the powder on.

That's it.
