Well, after a long wait, I get the MMI K-27. I bought from GME and Randy did some upgrades. He added a Tsunami decoder with custom sound, and high bass speaker. Replaced the bulbs with 1,5V and feed them with 1,2V. He polished all gears for better running, and really, runs like a dream!!

Here´s me receiving the big blue box.







And in comparison with the OF 2-8-0, I thought it was not so big, but she is!!



And here´s a test running video:

Am so happy!! :glad: I get a San Juan long refeer kit too.

Thanks guys! Woodie, the loco comes with crew figures, but I didn´t take a pic, because they are really ugly, and believe me when I say ugly :bang: So, I have a couple of figures from Artistta for replace those ugly from MMI.

Lucas, what a beauty. I know when you get the nerve to weather it you will do a masterful job, just like on your other locos. It's great to see someone excited about a milestone in their enjoyment of the hobby!
