It doesn't happen often, but I've actually finished something! It's a tiny HOn30 diesel that was once owned by the Ashio Copper Company in Japan. I've finished it to resemble one that's been preserved in Japan: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UfxiRGNi5Qo
It was assembled from a World Kougei etched brass & white metal kit:
This is the smallest engine I have and it's actually running quite well, a little speedy and the occasional stall, but better than I thought it would. It's having no problem pulling a half dozen Roco and Jouef tippers around my test loop.

Cody-that is one LARGE Bic lighter! Or is it one SMALL critter!!! Whatta sweet little lokie that is. Herbie would try to stuff r/c into it, it could be done but that's another story (German 1:87 r/c autos). I have several old Lindberg 1:32 Model T kits that might supply a hood & radiator for one in my scale..but that's all I need-another project. Sounds like you are planning a small HOn30 layout, with Bill and his On18 plans..we could see a "micro boom"...
