Maybe it shows, but I never drew out any kind of plan for the critter.  I worked off of one photograph, some guesstimations, and what I thought it should look like.  As long as it works I'm happy.

Hi Michael :wave:


Well ... You certainly gave me a SHOCK :shocked: with the colour-scheme !

Royal Mail
London double-decker bus
Ferrari red !


It's the kinda vehicle which the crowds at Silverstone
would have loved to see Michael Schumacher start the British Grand Prix in every year !


Who knows ? ... DOES it contain an F1 engine ?
I think one would fit !
'Prancing Horse' decal on the 'nose' maybe ? L:


;)


Si.


Screw the engine anyway ... it's all about 'mechanical grip' & aerodynamics ! ;)

We know the 'aero-package' is less than optimum...
...so how's the 'mechanical' grip' ?

:brill:

I took the weights out to make room for the engineer, and possibly R/C in the future.  I certainly have the room inside since I built a new body.  I may add some lead just for a little extra traction.  I only expect it to pull a few cars anyways.

I recognize that loco! I believe it is a Swedish critter and I also think that Tom Yorke brought out a kit for the thing! All I know is that I have seen a kit somewhere...cool as hell! Neat thing to build, carry on.

Woodie

Didn't know he put out a kit for this.  A little expensive at $125.  I might have spent $20 total for everything including the Plymouth engine.  Most of the materials I already had on hand.

Installed an exhaust stack, small lights on each end, horn and clanger bell.



I think I'll declare this project finished.

Okay, so you'll need two car kits, and something for a chain drive.  On the right-hand side underneath the 'pilot' it looks like there are a couple of bags...maybe for added ballast?
