PRR GG1 from Ukraine

Some Ukrainian modeller, Igor, from the city of Nikolaev, have built the PRR GG1 electric locomotive from scratch.
The work is not finished yet, but it is very interesting.
He used the pieces of polystyrene for body shell, wheels from used BTTB electic locomotives and Chinese motors that he purchased on the Aliexpess ("Chinese Ebay")

A lot of photos on the Ukrainian forum:

I'm not very easily impressed, but that scratch-build has my attention. Some very nice work in styrene. :thumbup:
