Took the loco to work last night & did a bit of weathering, still got a bit more to do tonight but it's a start.

As for the wheels i give up, to many links to pin to get them to work.

Of all the models in all the gin joints this is my first train ever.

Well you should not be worrying about the running gear, It looks great.

The detail in the kit looks rather good.

nah I'm no expert either, however would the normal Loco be hiding behind all that armour plate? Maybe by looking at the version without armour, you could scratch some thing up.

Beginning to look the biz now John, it'll be great once the top coat and weathering is on.

And is that little dio base behind it something to do with your train, it'll be a tight fit if it is LOL.
