Gnew Diesel

For discussion of the issues faced when building a model or layout - how to replicate wood, what glues to use, exactly how much weathering can a Gnat take, a good source of detailing accessories - you get the picture, I'm sure.

Body constructed by John Scanlon, the rest apart from removing the roof (impossible to detail cab otherwise) cobbled by myself.

Here's what it looks like on track:

Image

Back to the beginning, body in undercoat before any mods showing problem encountered in fitting a driver:

Image

Bachmann On3o Tram power unit with mounting ears removed fitted into Plasticard frame, plus fixings within loco body.

Image

Painted body with detached roof, now easy to fit a driver.

Image

Cobbled 4-Cyl engine, only the chrome :roll: exhaust is visible behind the grille.

Image

More later.
So little time, so many ideas!!!!! GerryB.

G'day Gerry

That little critter look really good.

Pity the engine is so well hidden behind the mesh.

Thanks Guys, here's a few more photos.
By the way Adrian the engine/clutch housing has now been repainted a cream colour which enhances the visibility behind mesh.

OOooops, lost his boot. :lol:

Image

A fortuitous cracked windscreen. :wink:

Finished apart from fitting Steve's coupler pockets for KD's. :D

I will probably carefully blacken the hatch levers.

Very nice Gerry, though I wouldn't want to have to drive it backwards, could be a bit of neck-ache!

Nice looking little thing.

G'day Gerry

Coming along Gnicly ---- I assume that it is now earning its living ?

Like the details in the cab, they look good.

By the way Adrian the engine/clutch housing has now been repainted a cream colour which enhances the visibility behind mesh.
Glad that you did the repaint ---- less drastic than the thought that I had of removing the mesh !

Cheers
