    • Larry,
      Good looking critter! It does have a nice homemade look.

      • Philip thank you; hopefully she doesn't redline.

        Mike thanks and yes it was fun to build even with a few challenges thrown in.

        Scott thank you; it should be "one of a kind".

        • The critter is coming along nicely. The cab looks great.

          • Don't know if I want to ride in that "CRITTER"!

            But you did one hell of a job on it. Great work Larry.

            • Roland thank you for your nice compliment. It was fun to build.

              Jerry you know what they say "No guts...no glory". I've hired a driver
              he just needs to show up for work; and thanks for the compliment.

              • The Critter is detailed and finished for the most part so here's it is:

                Added a few details such as the exhaust stack and the two control levers which you can see inside the Cab. The roof is card with
                a piece of paper towel glued on. Several very thin coats of flat black was sprayed on and allowed to dry. Ended up with a textured
                canvas covered roof.

                And of course the back of the Critter. This was a fun build and made the Critter more in scale with the rest of the layout. So now
                I have a workable engine if I want to shuffle some cars around the layout.

                The detail parts have been ordered for the Store interior so it's back and finish that project before moving on to anything else. I may
                also throw in a boxcar or two along the way.

                Thanks for looking so until next time.

                      • Thanks Rick. Looking at the photos there are a couple more things that I
                        think I'm going to do to the Critter before I declare it done.

                          Looking at my last posted photos I didn't like the roof looked as it was too thin. To remedy that I cut some scale lumber which was
                          painted black then glued to the edge of the roof all the way around. Now it looks thicker. Also made some signs on the computer and
                          Mod Podged them to the sides of the Cab. Lastly rusted up a piece of chain and added it to the cab.

                          Here is another view of the things added to the Critter. Now i think I can call it finished.

                          Merry Christmas and thanks for looking.

                          • Your critter looked nice before, and looks even better after. Good call.

                            • Michael thank you. The roof bothered me so I knew I had to fix it plus it gave me the chance
                              to add a couple more details while I was at it. Merry Christmas!!
