Bill & Winn, thank you. He's a great little guy, and yes from a shelter. He actually rescued me. He's 1 and now I remember why I wanted only Adult or Senior, but wouldn't trade him for anything. The fans need a little tweaking, but over all happy with how they came out. LiG

Jerry, thank you. I made the first air duct from a cereal box bottom to test the viability and baffle positions until I got them all to start and stop close together. Made a more permanent one from plastic, removable for maintenance of the fan. Testing showed that the best LOOK was using 6V for the operation. Also, FLEX SHOT worked well to adhere the small box to the casting.
LiG.

Scott, thank you. Rob who cast the shell told me he once made a diesell that the windshield wipers worked, that is super detailing. LiG

Mate, that is super functionality especially for a smaller scale.

He also added that since diesels don't have the rod motion of a steamer feature movement gives the model life. LiG

Nick - your mate would love the NB30 that is preserved and runs on the Pichi Richi Railway. It started life as a Vulcan 0-6-0 saddle tank loco and was converted to Diesel-Electric loco that's still being operated.

Rob advised me to try and make the fans run as slow as possible so they can be seen. With limited control of the supply fan, and the roof fans having 8 blades they were a blur. A little trick on the eyes, I darkened every other blade, I will do the others next time. LiG.
