PRR GG1 from Ukraine

PRR GG1 from Ukraine

Postby Arseny » Sun Jul 02, 2017 1:29 pm

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:

Cool build, I can't wait to see the finished model. But please man please put some flywheels on that motor...

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