    Any ideas on how to kitbash this in Nscale?! For the wiring, small brass wire but what about the camera? Or would you even see it?!

    I would think that it would just about visible a real small piece of sqaure styrene filed to an angle in the front and then mounted at an angle would simulate it nicely I think. Maybe a real small bead for the lens.

    what is this videocamera for ? safety reason ? remote controlled engine ? why on the roof and not in the cab ? questions, questions, questions... :D :D

    Mike, are you KITBASHING NOW? Holy CR@%. Mike is no longer a shake and bake railroader.

    Nscalesteve......WHERE ARE THE REDBARNS????? I am so eager to see them. Best of luck. I once built one from styrene in HO but it took a dive :(.

    Mike I would love to see 5 or so of the gp9u's on what wonderful layout of yours! How long until we get to see them?

    Mike, you could do it with an optivisor which is a great tool for doing tiny work like this.
    I like belg's suggestion. It will hardly be visible but you will know it's there.

    ...where are the Miniatures by Eric part numbers ? :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

    here the first test on a Kato SD40-2 drive (I used also the Atlas steps on the back for this engine...) the engine is still a littlebit to high and I have to file down the drive for 2mm.
    the second engine is still in parts on my workbench...
    btw: how have you made the steps in the tank on the other side ?

    Nope David, no longer! I went to Home deopt tonight, and almost bought an air compressor! $159 for a 100psi, with a 2 gal tank on it. Very tempting!

    nscalesteve. I just filed the tank and made a 'sqare notch', and used styrene to make steps. CA holds it together.

    I also realized that I have taken NO photos of the right side of my loco, so this is for you steve.

    MasonJar It's not rocket surgery

    Your location says Alberta, and I assume that if you have a Home Depot nearby, you might also have a Canadian Tire (do you have those out west?).

    Anyway, this might be interesting:

    Thanks Andrew, I just called the Canadian Tire down the street, they don't have any in stock, but they are getting more in on Tuesday. I'll get on of them instead! Thanks again!
