Hi, I'm Kim.

Hi all.
time to start a new topic.
Dirty Dog will be about rolling stock built to the scale roughly of 1/32 to 1/35 and running on 16.5 mm [HO] track.
the first one I posted last week was the people carrier and now I am working on a log disconnect-see photos.
I really love South Creek and it will continue to travel and post pictures but there are a few details that bother me and time is the only solution.put it away for a while pull it out and usually, the solution is right there. I hate being in a situation that you have to make a hasty solution they for me never work for me.
cheers, Kim.

The stained, oily rusted metalwork on those disconnects looks absolutely disgusting -- in other words, exactly as it should. As I've already mentioned, I also very much like the weathering on the "people carrier". Most satisfactory.

Kim, over the past few years your modeling has become even better and more artistic than it used to be. For those who don't know it, Kim and I go back to the mid 1990s when I published the first of two of his 1:32n2 shelf diorama layouts. I wish I had digital images of them to post here. Kim was far ahead of the pack even back then.

Absolutely superb weathering, you can just feel that oily rust.

That looks too neat to be ignored. Hope someone models it.

It looks like a racing loco MG might have made in the late 1940s. -- Russ

Thanks, Kim,
I love it! Could that be a battery mining
loco converted to IC with a tractor engine?

Kim or anyone have more pics or info?

Looking at the name plate on the side I would guess it is the illegitimate child of a McCormick reaper and a John Deere tractor.
I will see all of you in the corner later.

I nicked it from an Australian narrow gauge site it was used in the logging industry I will see if I can find out more. love the original tractor seat under the roof or more like the lean too at the back I suppose it was chain driven.

yes, a great little loco with a lot of modelling potential. personally, I really would take my hat off to anybody who could do it.it would be a really hard job just look at those wheels and imagine the transmission and the grill and then to get it going o my, I think I will stick to something a lot simpler, funny how the homemade style of loco in the 1-1 scale are really complex but still really nice.

seeing that I am on a roll I will post 2 photos of an electric narrow gauge which are quite doable,  both I really like .the green version has come from Helmut and is my current project in 1/35 to 1/32 scale on 16.5 gauge .i will use a Tenshodo Spud drive. i think it will be a fun build with some great painting possibilities.
cheers.
