Hello!
This is my first post in this forum! I am a norwegian G-scaler.
Want to show You my largest project, a norwegian shunter called DI-2 Diesel 0-6-0. The scale is 1:10
It´s rather a heavy weighter model ca. 70 kgs!
Everything exept the engine is scratchbuildt.

Very interesting. Is that running on G 45mm track? That would make it about 18 inch gauge.
There are a few guys working in 1/12 scale on 32mm track (15 inch gauge) over here - http://www.7-8ths.info/
I'm sure they would love to see this.

Hello Brian!
The scale on the tracks are the same as the same as the train, 1/10. That would make the tracks 145mm wide. The tracks are also custom made, so they are not a standard model scale. The full size of the train would be about 10 metres, so this model is about 1 metre long.
I need to sit down with a cup of coffe and look at the link you gave me, it looks very interesting :) thank you!

Hi!
Yes its all steel. 2mm black steel and stainless steel at the bottom frame.
Now he is looking for some engine lockers for the rear hub. The ventilation ribs are 1 1/4" long ,it looks like this: Make a cut in the plate and press out the upper part about 1" full size.
More pics will come.

rkapuaala: Yes, the shunter is built in 1,5-2mm black and stainless steel. The wheels are fabricated in 20mm steel. Some details like horn will be manufactured in brass.

The Di2 is now painted and placed on it's railroad in the garden. It has still a lot of detail work to be done on it like: Windows, bufferts, interior in the cabin, connector for trailor and so on.. Besides of the di2 you can see my other project, a G-scale model which is built in brass. It uses 45mm railroad, and is in 1:20 scale. This industrial-shunter was used in the 1950's on the previously american owned mangan factory in Sauda(Efp.co.ltd).

Herman's wheel-loader in G-scale:
This is the biggest wheelloader that was used on the efp factory. It replaced the old locomotives. I made this model 30 years ago for my oldets son, Egil, which is now 35 years old. The kid you see in the picture is Egil's son Herman, who now has taken the wheel-loader back in use :)
