Red Armoured Train [12]

I pretty much finished the locomotive this afternoon, although I did a little re-designing along the way by cutting down the cab and changing the smoke stack from an icing funnel to a cut down ball point pen.

I need to sort out the connecting bit to the tender which is the next bit of the train that I have to complete, once the command / machine gun wagon has been finished off.

It looks a bit like a diesel at the moment but I think the tender will make it look more like a steam locomotive once it's been fixed to the footplate end. I'll also do something to sort ou the smokestack and make it a little less hefty.


  1. Your progress is just amazing Jim!

  2. Thanks

    It helps to have the kids off with the mother in law!
