      Louis, Catching up and I love what you did with this engine. If I were not so distracted with all things 1918 France I would pull my MDC Climax out of the box and give it a once over.


      Thanks Larry, this hobby can put us in many directions, but your Europe 1918 project is worth sticking with. Fantastic work being done there, and interesting information as well. I'm guilty of what I accuse others of doing, and that's that "I've been lurking at your project and not posting".

      • The L&R is obviously very proud of its locomotive, giving it such a classy paint job rather than plain black.

        Very nice.

            • Louis, I'm sorry that I haven't replied yet regarding the completion of this project.

              It looks wonderful! Except for the copper coloured chains, you need to blacken those up.

              Then it will be Super Wonderful!

              Thanks for sharing the build with us!

                  Thank you Greg. Yes, I saw in the final picture that those chains would have to see a solution of Blackin-it by A-West. If you ever want to see mistakes in modeling, or things needing fixing, take a picture and look at it. It tells all.

                    • That looks really good Louis. Sorry I missed the build. I've often wondered how difficult/easy it would be to convert this kit to HOn3

                            Were your 3 previous builds like modeling fore play?

                            Now ending with this climax!

                            Will we all have a cigarette when your finished?

                            • Glen, and Mike sorry I never saw your responses, and got back to you. I do thank you for your comments.

                              Philip thanks for bringing this thread back up. I never got to see Glen and Mike's posts. Ensign's comment was a good one wasn't it?
