A part of the Toeffelholm island world is going to be modeled in 7/8th scale with 2' gauge.

The first loco is built from a kit that was offered in the 7/8th Lounge forum by a guy called banjomike. The roof is a scratch built addition. Axle boxes, screw imitations, seat and bonnet handles are detail parts from Modelearth/Talisman.

Exhaust pipe and other details are still missing. Driver is recruited but is a somehow colourless person yet.

it's supposed to represent a petrol loco in the late 1920th.








Controlled with DelTang RC for sure and this time with sound addition.

That's a comfy looking seat. Beautiful model too.

Really nice Juergen...great to hear from you again. Those 7/8 scale critters are so neat, makes me want to build one also. Don't forget that we demand more, MORE!
