That's really neat. I love to look at the odd critters on S.B. iii's page

I was contemplating building this

It's an interesting critter but looks like it would be pretty straightforward to build. It's not really from the period I'm modeling, but like you I think unusual stuff deserves to be modelled

I'm currently working on this

using a Bachmann Peter Witt power truck. I'll get around to posting pictures of it once I'm a little further along.

Finished, for now:



I removed the metal end beams and replaced them with pine car derby weight distributed under the car, its no as heavy as befero, but heavy 'enough', besides the end results look FAR batter, much closer to the real thing.







Yep, it definitely looks better without the end beams. I still have a little detail paint and mild weathering to add, but major work is done. Its not an exact model of the original, but its close enough for my standards.

To whom it may concern, due to circumstances beyond my control (Vertical Scope screwing the pooch and deleting 80MB of my photo history three months ago with no resolution) This and all other threads of my 10+ years of activity on this site are now closed, if you are curious please look to my identical threads on LargeScaleCentral which in the coming months I will attempt to re-edit photos into from my personal archives once I have a new storage site up and running. It was fun while it lasted but the collective of monkeys now running this site now have soured my experience. Have a good day.
