After enjoying Gnatterbox for nearly a year now, I though it about time I actually made something in Gn15. I had a Bachmann Gas Mechanical spare and decided to build a small diesel using mainly the scrap box for parts. I purchased the Sidelines cab, to get a feel for the loading gauge and added a bonnet from plasticard.
My inspiration was a Schöma diesel drawing that was published in Narrow Lines many years ago. I added Cambrian Models louvres, a Boulder Valley sand box, and an exhaust made of concentric MS brass tubing. The fuel tank followed details given by Zoange in the Gnatterbox.
The figure is a Preiser passenger who just about fits, although he does have a very worried expression. Perhaps he finds the cab a little claustrophobic.
So all I have to do now, is decide on a colour and pluck up courage to wield a paint brush.
