First of all ...
... clearly you probably have years of experience as a master watchmaker !
I don't think I could have got the 12 Volt V6 air-cooled inside that microbus ...
... let alone all the DCC microchip skullduggery AS WELL !!
I'm having a NERVOUS BREAKDOWN here at the moment ...
... trying to figure out how to get a darn motor inside TWO 1:35 scale cars welded together in the middle ...
... pass the Valium(TM) & the vitamins !
Your paint livery is ACE as usual & looks real C L for your line.
The photo is great Gerold.
BUT since the wide-angle lens is clearly making the U.P. monster ! look smaller ...
... & the microbus look bigger ...
... I'd love to see a snap of the VW bus, on a track right next to the loco.
Maybe even some GIANT re-railing fingers or other 'scale' object next to the bus.
They aren't really all THAT big in 1:1 real life ... but in HO !
I'd kinda like a VW bus for my modest HO collection.
My friend Jules had one years ago & we piled on some SERIOUS miles ...
... it needed a new (refurbished) V6 eventually as well.
Jules always wanted an original split-screen one back in the day ...
... possibly a '67 ? cos that is his birthday year.
But as poor impoverished graduates there had to be an adequate BEER BUDGET as well !
He really wanted the soooper RARE safari-windows one as well ...
... I told him an angle-grinder would be the most economical option !
He was telling me the other day how much even a VERY BAD condition split-screen goes for these days ...
... or ANY one at all.
When he told me how much our mates immaculate one, with the split-screen AND safari-windows was worth ...
... I nearly choked to death, as I sprayed beer all over the place.
One could retire on THAT kinda dough !
