Hi,

the first photos of my newest project. It will take an ESU loksound micro, hence the name of the project :bg: I'm still wondering if a diesel engine or a gasoline driven one will be more "prototypical"





Chassis is a KATO Fourwheeler.

That's going to be a cool "critter". I personally like gasoline/mechanical propulsion but an oil burner is OK also. Send more photos...

@ Woodie: A gasmechanical... Maybe I can adapt the galopping goose sound a little bit. The other petrol engine sound from ESU is a VW bulli as speeder...

More photos? Voilá:

The rivets and the louvered cover are 3d laserengravings. And, yes, one of the strips on the front must be corrected. Photos are so cruel...

Calvino, you don't need to have your own - you must only know someone who owns one :cb:

New pics:

I know: too new, too clean, too neat ;) wethering will be the last step:


Still higgledy-piggledy, but at least enough space for all the goodies:
