Finally - Some shots of Pete's locos !!

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.

Have a go at putting this critter together, Steve . . . It's a load of fun - and looks the part ! Although Jim Favre is an American (we can forgive him this!), he has managed to impart a particularly Australian feel . . . specially to the 'cab' !!

If I remember rightly, it was the NZ public works Model T Ford loco's that provided the inspiration, so it's the right part of the world :lol:
Just wondering if I can get an Underground Ernie power bogie to fit :?:
The original GE-44 units that I have are all in use under other things now :roll:

As they have been out of production so long and getting hard to find, I only designed one loco to fit on the GE-44, which is the "Wasp" and I think I see one in the background in your photo Pete.
