Hi Junior --

Your critters and dioramas are superb! The assembly photos with labels are nicely presented and give a wonderful insight into construction ...

And your humor is greatly appreciated too.

Brovo! I look forward to more ...


Cheers,

Quality craftsmanship with a sense of humor!

Thanks all,

This is the final electro critter.
But, No. 1 is my first mining-styled locomotive.
Powered by a Tenshodo SPUD WB-26 with 14mm dia. wheels.











See you again!

Junior

Junior-

Your excellent diagrams, parts identification, and in-progress photos help de-mystify the process of creating such beautiful models, but the results still look magical.

Your series of posts on RR-L forums have been some of my all-time favorites. The style of modeling you do is what attracted me to narrow gauge. Thanks for the great information and inspiration.

Junior,

Thank you for posting the pictures. I have learned a lot from this and want to build some of those critters.

Once again, you've made a very nice small loco, and your photo-explanations make the process very easy to understand for those who would want to build their own version. Thanks for sharing your great modelling, Junior.

Thousand thanks to all.

Next locomotive?
Humm....no idea...
Perhaps, double truck one.

By the way, I used some shots that was taken on dioramas for this thread.
All of them are very samall and narrow.

The criffside and engine shed dioramas are about 1'x4"(300mm x 100mm) in size.





The smallest diorama is mine entrance, built for my freiend.
This is about 6"x4"(150mm x 100mm) in size.



The freight depot diorama is the largest.
As same as the mine entrance diorama, I built this for my freiend, but, another guy.
This is about 1'-6"x6"(450mm x 150mm) in size.



Happy holidays to you all and best wishes for a happy new year!

Many thanks Junior.
I love your last diorama. Even if it is the biggest, it's small, but full of nice details.
Best wishes for the new year, too.

Junior,
Thanks for all of the great posts. These are great dioramas that could be built into a great layout.

Thanks all!

Now I'm modifing No. 4 to double-truck loco.
And the new loco is to be built using remaining power truck and frame.
I'll upload the pictures when I have finished.
