    No I didn't, and every time someone brings this thread back or mentions the project it reminds me that I REALLY need to get on with it!

    Since I last posted, I've built my own self contained motor unit, which uses a mashima motor to give power to a single axle. I need to get around to finishing the trucks, because I've also managed to lose one of the truck frames, so I'll have to fabricate one. I still need to build the chassis, and find some wire to do the handrails. But once I've done that the model will be complete.

    I'm currently at the start of a week's holiday, so I should have plenty of time to do some modelling!

    How did I miss this

    Good work, glad to see some work in this area. I like the looks of this animal. I have been giving some consideration as to weather the same conversion I used on the bachman GE 70 tonner (over in the Hon3 engine shops thread) would work with one of the center cab Ho GE units


    thanks for sharing.
