ANy more pictures of it? :D


I've had to use a different layout to photograph the unit, and it didn't handle the house move too well, and there's currently only three vehicles to view (the fourth still has a little bit of work left), but here you go.....

The rebuilt front.

The modified cab enviroment.

The extra window in the non-driving trailer.

The cab front window is made from the tried and tested use of an old cola bottle. The top of the 'overriding blocks' needs a bit of paint.

That looks amazing :D

I like the sound of the cola bottle method for the window. What did you use to glaze the extra saloon window?

I had some spare Bachmann class 150 windows from another project. I cut one to fit and removed the moulded silver frame. I could have done it better and might try again at some point.

You could do it with other plastics I'm sure, cut to shape, but that seemed like the simplest solution for me.
