This model was great fun to build! At first i thought i build something like this engine but i realized with every step i came closer to the original model. Hope you like it! Comments welcome! I've uploaded some tricky building situations check them out!
I accidentally noticed your train while browsing through the builders in the "Alternate designs of a Creator" group - I'm stunned by all the details and realism of this train, congratulations!
Now I'm off to check your other builds too.
Very Nice bro. I've had the opportunity (when i was a young kid growing up under communism) to actually work on these machines. As a school competition (project) I had to make a cutaway fuel injector of this machine in the 2nd year and in the 3rd an actual cutaway engine display. That later on went to the auditorium of the school. I won the competition with it and 10,000 Forint.
Very nice, Tibor! I love how you built the black&yellow color scheme in front of the cowling - very creative! I also like the use of different windows to build the cab as well as the high rails surrounding the locomotive in its entire front part. Great job, and super-close to the original you showed us!
