Dave,

If I can ever get to the point where my efforts look half as good as yours, I'll be a happy man.

Dave.................simply amazing!!!   So glad to have you back, your kitbashing as I said before truly is amazing.  What a great little tender to complement that engine.

Thanks for sharing... I will post my 0-6-0 build for you.  After I get done R/C-ing the two Bachmann 2-6-0's and finishing up the "IrishGems" Whiskey Distillery that is 3/4 done.    Didn't want to get to far out with projects....yea right who am I kidding..:Crazy:

Ryan

Like the headlight, had not known Model Power has something with that style of light.

I'm not surprised Forest.

Most folks wouldn't give it a second look.



I grabbed it at a train show for $5 bucks a long time ago.

I wanted it for the mechanism.

Dave, love the tender.  Is that a B-mann pass truck under there?

That 0-4-0 was my first kit bash.  Turned it into a 0-4-4, the head light is now on a vertical boiler climax and the boiler is on my 0-6-0 kit bash.  Photos are in my gallery.

Cool Heath!

I like your vertical boiler. :pimp:




Yeah, good eye, that's a B'mann passenger truck with bits removed from the side frames.










I didn't like those end beams after viewing them in the photos, so I removed them and made up some beefier ones and used those instead.

I still need to add some styrene or brass bar between the journals.

I have not done anything on it in about a week.

I was going to put a sound chip in there, but am holding off as I contemplate switching over to R/C in my locos.

Sorry to bring this back from the dead, but I was wondering how it turned out Dave!
