Yes, Lok-n-Roll has a prototype of an chassis.


How much cost the assembled body?
Lok-n-Roll.de - we are shipping worldwide :wink:

Hello People,

I think, I have at the next 2 weeks a ready to run Chassis for a SD45!
The construction is the same how my SD40-2, only some shorter!

It looks good Michael!
I can't tell from the pics on this computer, are the sideframes on the bogies made by you? They look like the correct ones for teh SD45 or any six axle GM diesel of that time.

Hi Bernd,
That brass walkway is from the original kit, you can see more about it on the bottom of the first page of this topic. There are the pdf's that are the assembly instructions. It's a nice etch, but a challenge to build- two years later I've got mine about 1/3 done (mostly because of my short attention span- this one you need to concentrate on!).

The kit is from Norkin Model of Russia. Not sure if they are still available. Here is the website http://www.norkin-model.ru/.
You can contact Andrey Norkin (he knows a little english) via email 'zakaz(at)norkin-model.ru'.

This looks like the "one I've been waiting for" ...
I much prefer the entire motor/drive-train above the floor, with gear towers to the trucks.

I can't speak for Richard-B, but I like gear towers for the simple reason that they are tried and tested. I am very open to new ideas regarding drives now, it seems to me that sometimes things get over engineered just because it worked that way for years. For instance my home washing machine has plastic parts that an engineer fifty years ago would have laughed at, but now a floppy bit of plastic works great as a non return valve and is cheap to replace. So because of that I love the fact that people push the limits and try other things
