@Norkin-model:
- Do you know how many hours it takes to mount the model (approximately - easy or difficult to build)?
- Can I use the drive and chassis from Roco BR120 or BR132 without major mechanical alterations?
- Does the model has enough space to mount sound decoder with a larger then standard loudspeaker (or better two !! ), eg ESU 50448, or You know better one?

I am preparing to take the decision to start this model.

Thank you for your thoughts. I'll try to unswer.

1 - Njt more than 8-16 h. in case that you have all stuff (instreuments e.t.c.) If we count from 1 - 10 The level of hardness is about 6-7. But there are more than 70 diff parts
2 - I'm looking forward to build a frame based on BR120, BUT we havent steel desided if it will be ROCO or Tillig. Tillig is cheaper and a frame for this boggies will be wery simple.
3 - there is enougt space in the front hood and in a back after a boggie. I think thet - yes - there is some space for your experiments.

In this case it would pay to take Tillig's loco. It's much cheaper (at ebay) and the second series runs well and silent, too. The Roco M62 looks better, sure, but behind the SD45 brass frame that won't matter. :thinking:

It is a great difference between BR120 Tillig and Roco - more than 15 years (the year of construction) and it shows up on the rails and can be heard !! Only Roco, although the more expensive.

There are errors In Tillig, in the transfer of power, which causes damage to the gears. The result is loud and pulled ride, in extreme cases leads to engine failure. One of them:

Bracket "A" is a bit too long. Slight shift causes attaching the edge of the "B" on the sprocket axis "C". More: in Polish

It is true that the current production is much better than before. Might be able to fit your project to both versions BR120? :pray:

I think that as my SD45 is in a kit, but not a ready model - you guys can use both (tillig/roco) for a personal frame! :think:

I can workout a frame for Tillig and send to Constructor a drawings so he will print it like he print his models. Than You will need only to copy that frame in soft metal (soldering). :dance:

I think I’ll be much more cheeper than to sending ready frames through Atlantic((-: May by somebody will send me an SD40 from A&D after that :thinking: ((((-:
