Both of your projects look great ! Always inspires me to get modeling myself, maybe I'll get to work on my
shells I got from you too this weekend ! I do like the Tamiya paint very much, I use it on everything, from military kits
down to slotcars and TT models :thumbup:

Hmm, you mentioned the wheelbase being short on your adapted mechanism. How short is it?

Also the Tillig V100 has 19.2mm trucks I think. How long are the side frames? A bit longer - or are they designed to line up with the V100 trucks? They look particularly nice.

Sorry. To clarify: the T435 has a shorter bogie center to bogie center distance. The axle to axle spacing on the bogies is perfect and the side frames line up.

Laid on a little paint with the airbrush. I have found with the right pressure and nozzle settings the paint did not need to be thinned. This is the second of what will be a 5 colour paint scheme.

The edges of paint are a little rough, but they will be covered by some red pin striping. Roof and bogies need to be done in grey yet.

How do you plan on doing the couplers?

The coupler will be mounted on a piece of strip brass that extends under and past the fronts for the loco. This will be attached to the bottom of the bogie. It won't be close coupled.


The pin striping is having the desired effect.

Ah ok, it's this one, right?:

Looks good. I was confused because a DBV100 BR212 is 2200mm and a V75/BR107 is 2400mm, according to the handy database on the TT Board, anyway. Assume he's etched something able to do both. I'll order some as they'll be bang on right for the only Aussie one that used it (had 2285mm trucks).

Like a lot of Aussie diesels, it shows elements of both US and UK influence, but the trucks are pure American, a bit like the Budd RDC the unit is shunting (or should that be switching?).

It's looking good man. Now, what about windows? Strips of clear plastic I guess?

This I did not know. The etch was made for the V100 so he (and every other maker) must have adjusted the size to line up. Its not noticeable though.

No. I've got a mold to use with clear casting resin to make the windows flush mount. They are not as nice as plastic due to bubbles, but I can live with it.
