|I think this will be a loooong time project, but like to share the entire proccess. Always admired these locos, and in Argentina we had some GE 756, similar to the ones in WP&Y but a little bigger, because they were meter gauge. Anyway, I wanted to model a couple in 0n3, first one from here and then, a couple of WP&Y. I started searching for pics and a friend of mine sent me a couple of drawings. So, I put them in cad and started to design the parts for laser cut. I used styrene in two different thickness, 0.5mm and 1mm. The real challenge will be the trucks, no commercial parts for 0n3. So, jumped to CAD again and drew the parts. I´m working right now in a test model for see if the parts fits OK, and with this test, I did many changes to the original drawing and added more parts and details. Would be nice if I can power the roof fan, should be easy to do.
Well, that´s all for now, here are some pics of the test model.
Showed here is with an H0 model I weathered for a friend, in the back is my 0n3 model.
Here is the laser cut side truck, it has about 20 parts each.
Now, I hope to finish this project , because I have many unfinished, still need some commercial parts.
