which leads me neatly into letting you guys know that this is my first loco kit in my new range of 1/32 18, 20 and 24 inch gauge kits

Consider one sold (provided it is indeed 1:32 and not that johnny-come-lately heathen 1:35 scale). This loco from a Swedish peat line is closer to a Model A, although I think it may be a 30s Model B. Nice track, too.

I love that Swedish critter! That's definitely going into my "someday" projects file.

Thanks all for the additional photos, drawings, etc -- great stuff!  Dallas

PS -- If the promised kits ARE in "heathen" scale ... I'll probably take a few ... and build them barefoot!  Grin

Ah Kevin...it's so nice to see you back here. I really missed you participation...be it blunt, curmudgeonly, pedantic, or a just plain W.A.G.  Smiley

Marc, thanks for the link. On the flickr page if you click the photo's owner's name, Claus Nielsen you get to all his photos. Great stuff.

http://www.flickr.com/photos/nystrup_grus/

From the above link .. this is an interesting photo. He used it as a basis for a model also.

Ed,
Thanks for the links to Claus Neilson's work. I like his WWI models. I was particularly taken by his model of the obscure "Campagne Locotracteur" (see below). I have been looking for plans and photos of this loco for years.

Can you (or anyone) give me Claus' email address? (I couldn't find it on Flickr)

Also, any other photos, plans, or links about this loco would be appreciated...
Carlo

After looking at all this reference material, I really like the appeearance of an exposed motor on
this type of Critter -  but it looks like there will have to be some compromises to make it work.
Here's what I'm doing:

First, I made a wooden buck that followed the shape of the Bachmann motor.  Heated plastic sheet
was formed over the buck (like I did on the Lumber Carrier grill & hood), a suitable section was removed
and cut to shape and a cap was added to one end:



The completed form sits snuggly over the motor:



To make this look somewhat like a motor, I built a bank of cylinders and a cylinder head out of styrene....



....and glued it to the cover:



So far I've added more engine details, including an intake/exhaust
made from solder and some model car gaskets and spark plugs:



I still don't know if I can sufficiently disguise the grossly misshapen
crank case, but I hope that high sides will do it.  We'll see.



Stay tuned for more updates.  Thanks for looking.

Hey Ken,
That's looking great.  Maybe a Ford Flathead V8 would have better fit the motor cover then you could have added Lakers and flames Wink Grin.
