  • Lou’s HO scale home brewed Railcar Critter

    When Railroad-Line changed it's operating system this build did not copy over to the new Link. So I compressed a PDF of the build and posted it in two Parts here, to replace the missing information. Quality is not as good as original but this is the best I can do for you.

                Have to say Louis I may have one over on you for number of projects and tooling, but you got me for being able to start and finish a project much faster than me.

                I'll be referencing this thread when I build my HOn3 version.

                Nice SBS and build. Always top notch. Now I'm sending you two VW Beetle body's and I want you to build them into a 1:1 rail critter. There'll be a truck stopping by to drop off materials and tooling for the project. [:-clown]

                    Louis, your home brewed version of this railcar critter, came out of your shop looking mighty fine.

                    And will only get better in time, with your future enhancements

                        Thank you very much guys for your comments. I'm burned out at the moment, but yes, as I stated and Greg Alluded to, I'll get back to it at some point in time and add DCC possibly with sound, and lighting.

                            Great build Louis, and thanks for detailing all your build. That's a huge effort.

                            I really like slicing and dicing kits to make something a bit different , and your's is certainly one of those.

                            You always manage to come up with something unique. Brilliant.

                              Very impressive Louis,

                              Even your beautifully described instructions seem to difficult for me to build one but I sure like the looks of the critter.

                              Thanks for sharing!
