About this creation
The second version - March 2005:
For the first version of this diesel engine did not please me anymore, I created a new 8 stud wide model. The 1999er model was completely taken apart for part donation.

   The frontal view reveals, how I solved the roundnesses in the year 2005. In contrast to the 1999er model, the 2005er model copies the proportions much closer to reality. About the quality of the stickers however can be surely argued...

   Again a lateral view onto the V 200, which again shows the proportions well. Particularly difficult to design were the black diagonal fan grills and the entrance doors, which were constructed in SNOT technology. A negative point with this model is again the much too short axle distance of the 9V LEGOŽ railway motors.

   The 4 windows with the white sash bars are based on the very old train windows, which were used in the middle of the 1970's (e.g. with set 182). In order to get two further sash bars, I simply used a white adhesive film.

   The next 2 pictures document the relatively large approximation to the dimensions of the original locomotive. The assembly drawing originates from an old railway magazine and is held on a scale 1:43,5 (model railroad gauge 0). If we follow HoMas statement, that a Lego minifigs is minimized in scale by 1:40 (see HoMas homepage), then I believe a reproduction in approx. 1:43,5 is a acceptable compromise!

   Again the comparison to the scale of 1:43,5 - this time the view from above.

   The model:
The V 200 is probably one of the most well-known representatives of the postwar diesel locomotives of the Deutsche Bahn AG, and that, although it was built only in 136 exemplars. It is a large twin-engine diesel locomotive with originally 2 x 1000 HP(later up to 2 x 1350 HP). The locomotive was to be found in the first years pulling along passenger express trains as well as cargo trains. With progressing electrification of the railway network the V 200 disappeared more and more from the plan employment. The last rides under the "DB" emblem must have taken place somewhen in the middle of the 1980's/at the beginning of the 1990's.

Amazing work man, I love this engine. The V200 is an legend, and you put it in the next level with lego bricks. Fantastic!

Are you sure this isn't real? It looked real to me. Amazing.

:-O My jaw just dropped. This is the best train I've seen in a month or more, and probably one of the best ones I've ever seen. Very clean, very accurate...if only you found a way to get past that sticker, I'd be amazed. Keep up the great work though!
