If ever I can scratch up enough money, I'd like to get one of these things. what's the kit quality like? I've got a few trumpeter kits and they are a mixed bunch. Some are excellent - others need a lot of work. I'd be disappointed if I spent a lot of money on a kit like this if there's huge amounts of clean-up work needed to get it built.
Looks great so far. I have the same kit so will be following this build closely. Good luck with the loco.
All the best
weathering in the cab, it looks absolutely spot on and shows just how well you understand the subject.
Great kit and a really interesting subject with huge diorama possibilities.
Love the coal dust on the floor!
This is going to be inpressive, and I am looking forwards to the progress.

Ok folks here is my progress to date, this is the locomotive in primer so far still haven't decided what paint scheme to do yet hope you like it all comments are welcome be they good or bad.
As far as the painting goes? It looks solid in Black/red but that could be the problem, to solid. The camo painted one? I have never seen a camoflge painted train before, so from where I am sitting its very different.
I guess in the end its all up to what the diorama will depict. A lone loco in a siding would look great in black and red. though a compleat train with a line of wagons with tanks on. Or if you are going for one of the big guns, and the accompanying wagons. So camo for that one! which ever you choose it will be a real talking point.
I would also like to say that the loco looks great. I thought you said you would go it slow on this build!!!
Hi ian it measures just under 1 metre long so far, and i thought i was going slow lol, if you are interested i've written a review on this kit so tell me what you think.
Something been bugging me since you started this thread and suddenly it came to me. In April 2008, I visited our local steam railways main station. The Nene Valley Railway has its headquarters and main depot at Wansford just outside Peterborough, anyone watch Eastenders recently when there was a scene with a car on a railway crossing just getting clear as a diesel bore down on it? That was Wansford. Sad I should know that but there you go....
Anyway, back in April 2008 I took a few pics on a not very nice day amongst which are these two. Sorry the pics are not very good, I was just grabbing a record shot.
Kreigslok 2-10-0 7173. Which I believe is very similar to yours Scott
and German class 64 2-6-2T 64305 Not sure if this is anything like the one of the ones John has on order.
Both engines are classed as 'in storage' pending restoration. Not sure if they are on loan or if Nene Valley own them
My present build, the 1/87 German BR50 would look like a pimple next to this.
I don't know if you have spotted this on Google images but it's a working model in a very nice cammo., complete with wagons, figures and a tank...type in 'German transport system WW2'
Great job nice interior detail I need to perfect myself.
Have done the German WR 360 C 12 Armored Locomotive with Railway Gondola (Low Sides) by Trumpeter but did not know this was was out yet.
Thanks for your work and notice of this great locomotive.
The story of how they both got there must be an interesting one.
