Hi Jack-

Nice loco. It has the appearance that it can be thrown off the roof and emerge unscathed.


The debossed part numbers on the inside of the wheel flanges are odd. Does the loco have carbon brushes for power pick-up? Do the carbon brushes slide over the debossed characters?

Best regards,
Bob

Bob,

The production pieces are coming for iHobby with Dr. Wilfer in two weeks. We can take a closer look at the mechanics then. I would assume the production variant will have a motor block that is very similar to the Taurus and BR218 locos.

Looks good for a starter set engine. In fact, I think the rest of the set looks pretty good too. I agree with Bob, this thing looks nearly indestructable. Looking forward to seeing one in person.

Little spartan on details, but I can add anything I think is missing like sandpipes, handrails, and cab details, but I'm very interested to see how this works operationally once someone gets there hands on it.

I am incredibly happy to finally see someone get a "basic" model right. Leave the details off, to save me the trouble of having to carve off the hideous blobs of plastic meant to represent plumbing, pumps, air tanks, handrails, etc. I think that, with some detail parts and new valve gear, that this could make an impressive model.

I do apologize to Buckso/Jack/Piko for saying what I felt, even as a right of a American.

How an edit makes double posts I'll never figure out.


Posting on mls reminds me of playing the slot machines.

When you click on the "submit" button, ie pull the lever, it takes a while to see the results and you also never know if you hit the jack pot, ie the post appears the way you expect them to.
