Alco PA

Alco PA

Jes made a very nice shell for Alco PA. I bought his model from Shapeways.
I tried to find suitable trucks and drive for the engine and found Tillig's BR103 close enough (Kuehn's BR103 could be another option). Maybe not 100% perfect, but within my tolerance. The trucks need new (smaller) wheels.
The frame needed some extension and adjustment for the fuel tank.
The pictures show the shells, the frame, the trucks, and comparison of BR103's and PA's sideframes.

Pretty cool. You guys in Europe get MUCH better quality out of shapeways. Keep us up to date on the build!

It starts looking as a locomotive.
