Them boys in the shop spell werst than me!
Got some brass details on and ready to paint, and the optional extra capacity fuel tank. Sure wish I could get them boys to secure the hose a little better
At leaste they got the rusty old fire bucket sitting raht there by the 55 gallon drum of petro, that way if there's a fire, they won't be able to get to the bucket.
It keeps gettin better lookin, nice job.
love that little guy Jon
That sure is a neat little unit Jon
That's a really neat little critter Jon!
Thanks, you guys!
Last night I got all the rails painted nice and safety yeller and set it out to dry. It seems the LPB's crawled all over it and got everything all greasy. I guess I should be thankful this batch of LPBs is doin' sumpthin' at least!
You're a sick puppy....
Ayuh, that's an interest'n' lit'l crittah!
Oh well, at least Sparky, the engineer crawled into a clean overall for the photo session. Looks like at least ONE of your LPS has kept a sense of fine taste!
Jon, among them thar li'l critters this wun musta be one of the best looki'n ones, ain't it? Now howzit runnin'? Does it purr, creak, waddle, wobble or what?
(Knowing your talent for fine model building I assume that it's running like clockwork. )
Thanks guys. Ron, it's a Trix chassis and runs quite well. No flywheels, but runs slow and smooth.
It seems everyone thinks it's small. It's actually quite large, so I've taken a perspective photo for you, next to a gigantic 10 ft tall beer bottle cap.
found a almost prototype for you critter whitcomb 50t 380 hp and of corse 30 inch gauge 1947.
Love Those Critters!
Nice job, Jon...I can't wait to see the rest of the loggin' line. If the rest turns out this well, boy oh boy.
Nice one Jim!
I have two more N scale chassis to bash into HOn30, and trying to decide if I should build a climax, or go for all diesels. I love that old Whitcomb, maybe the NG line will be all diesel!
Steve - I think I'll do some disconnects or skeleton cars next, probably standard gauge for the disconnects.
