    Hello all. I just want to put the images of the model that i took at E-CARD MODELS of this RXR by RXR Models.
    I improved some of details to increase the reality
    The model is very good with accurate fittings and simple solutions for structuring the deck

    Until I saw the wheel truck upside down I thought it was able to do static and rolling stand in duty for a "dummy" loco, something to fill up a long train. You had me fooled, good job and nice construction.

    Great work, eventually I will build some railroad stuff but my in-box is filled up with a bunch of build me now models. Good reference on the trucks.

    Actually, you could, if you had the wheel components and substituted them. I think paper trains would make a great substitute and there could be a substantial savings in weight if done carefully. :)

    You did an OUTSTANDING job on the engine.
    It looks FANTASTIC!!!

    If I may say, you could have easily made this into a "dummy" engine for any regular layout.

    KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK!!!

    Hi Rogério, In the case of wheel set I used cardboard 2mm to give a more robust appearance to the assembly. On the front I used wire to the hoses and those stops are made with small painted diodes

    I'm not very much into trains, but seeing your work is making me change my mind. Please, let us see more...

    Rogério Silva, There isn't much more to show on this montage, a model is very compact and easily to assemble, only took a few increments. Soon I intend to develop a model that I intend to present itself in the development stages and put it available here and on my blog, below

    Ronaldo,

    I would appreciate that, because my mother loves train and car models (go figure...:rolleyes:). Thanks!

    Great looking builds! Fantastic work on them :) thanks for sharing the pics. I know of several folks that built functional cars. One thing you can do is build your shells out of paper to easily customize them how you want then put those on to operable flatbeds or engines so you will get consistent linkups and such :) or if they will be static you can o course make them all paper no problemo!
