As Carsten already wrote on TT-board, a Budd RDC-1 is now available via shapeways: http://www.shapeways.com/model/904060/t ... Box-search

If it would be an etched kit or RTR, damn I couldn't resist ...

RDC-1 is a good thing. Maybe some Tillig or Piko power unit would be suitable?

ah, i wondered whether he would do this. i think he's a good designer, and he seems a nice bloke. but i don't have any of his stuff, yet.

i note it's in FD rather than FUD.

what may help is that any surface irregularities may be less noticeable due to the corrugated sides and roof.

although this isn't north american, it is an GM loco and is virtually a reduced weight GP7 with 3 axle trucks. hood also has design elements similar to an SW - the narrowed hood toward the cab, etc. so it shows that this stuff is doable in TT. for future projects, i think the idea of leaving the grilles bare is a good one - they'd look better in mesh.

The RDC-1 is in FD not a good model. I had it in my hands. But for FUD it is too long :(

The ML 4000 has got some Tillig spare parts. I have removed the side frames. Now I must build a frame. I bought a H0 one from Rivarossi and plans from Krauss-Maffei, to make the truck side frames.

It will be very interesting to see how you make the frame and motor and all the other stuff. Please keep us up to date.

Sorry I have no picture. It has a rough finish. The layer thickness is not so fine like FUD.
