Default OcCre Br18 Bavarian Dream

Hi.. I like to share construction an review of this beautiful kit by OcCre.

www.occre.com
www.occremania.com

Locomotive is G gauge and it's long 720mm



it is a metal castings, wood and brass kit that weight around 4kg








instruction manual is all photographic and easy to follow, in the kit is also added an italian (here in my country) text manual but really I did not need it.



this is the motor unit, sold separately.



I will make this kit dinamic with motor, lights, smoke unit and rc controlled motor unit.

sorry for my bad english, I try to answer about construction. as best I can

Very nice build, and welcome to the forum! What did the kit cost, if I may ask? It looks very well detailed.

Many Thanks.. price is around 400$ and 60$ for motor unit.
This OcCre kit is not difficult to build but requires precision and good adhesives to be assembled.

With the smoke unit I have wrong position, this because it came when I had already built the boiler. so I placed it in the tender as the first test








but the long distance penalized the generation of smoke
first test qith smoke unit inside the tender



so I took courage and modified the boiler












Second smoke test was much better
