Yes Bernd something of that size would be ideal for etched details, the pantograph looks great though, nice work mate

Bernd, you have forgotten to mention the scale of your EBT caboose. Is it in TT-scale, 9mm gauge?
I may need something to add to my 2 old EBT wooden hoppers and dummy Shay. (I know that the Shay was not an EBT engine, but that is all narrow gauge equipment I have so far)

Can you rescale it from H0 to TT?
It would be interesting only as a narrow gauge caboose (since the prototype is a narrow gauge caboose). It does not matter if the car is TTn3 and gets TTm trucks. The difference between those 2 gauges is only 0.72 mm or 0.028"

One more idea: would you scan the drawing and share it? I could try to convert it to vectors and laser cut it out of a brass sheet.
