Junior, once again you've found a great, unusual angle to shoot your loco. Makes a nice photo.

Thanks friends,

Arthur,

Here I uploaded a picture of my next electro critter.
This is based on Singer Manufacturing Company's switcher in its body design.

Frederic,

I think that low angle shot makes model look like real thing and large(Remember when you were child).
Try it!

Alain,

Thank you so much.
These critters are good for mini layout, with ore mine like yours, that I propose to build.
Following pictures show the ore bin and mine shaft for my mini layout.





Regards,

Junior

Junior, what material is the ore bin made of, and how did you paint and weather it?

Really beautiful modelwork!

Hauk and Frederic,

Thank you so much.
This ore bin is made of plywood veneer(for rear, back and sides), balsa lods(for posts) and cypress strips(for braces).
All wooden materials were stained, not painted.

Following picture is a shack for the proposed layout.
This is also made of plywood veneer and cypress strips.



Regards,
Junior

Hi Arthur,

Thanks!
And the next electro critter is goin' on.
This is to be the narrowest but the longest loco.

The trucks look great. I have no idea how you did that. Please tell us about it.

Thanks Arthur,

This track is an old 1 in 45 scale plastic-made Brill 21-E truck.
I shortened its wheelbase, from 46mm to 35mm.



Regards,
Junior

The tank adds greatly to your model, Junior. And the truck is indeed very interesting. Should be a fine one, once again. Aren't you afraid to have more engines than what your track can house?

Thanks Larry and Frederic,

So I made too many....
But, the next engine is nearly completed.



I want to start building a pike!

Junior this looks good! I agree on building a pike.. you have to run all of those great critters you build.. I am sure you have very little space so I am looking forward to seeing how you solve that problem.
