Oooh!  I do like this.  You are a master at this, I only hope my poor efforts with the 1F come close.

John

Very Nice.
I always enjoy watching you builders put together kits and marvel at the engineering involved to get them working.

thanks for showing the steps in the journey.


cheers

Marty

Thanks Marty and all,I would`nt describe my efforts as engineering Marty, just an accumulation of many, many attempts at building kits good and bad over the years. But thanks anyway.

ThisPug kit is all but completed now, just the brake pull rods to fit.

I ran her in a bit on my rolling road today and she was floating up and down on her front axle springs due to all the weight on her rear axle.

Being 90% whitemetal you would`nt think she needed extra weight , but her front end was too light and I decided to add `liquid lead` to her front `footplate boxes` and then add sheet lead to her smokebox to balance out her movement.











She will go into temporary storage until the warmer weather as I need strong light to spray paint her and that will be done outside.

So I`ll post this youtube link showing her at crawling speed.   Seeing that she is a 37 yearold kit with an open frame motor, I`m quite pleased.

She is controlled with my trusted AMR hand controller which is about 8-10volt max and is my `yardstick` prior to wiring her to a ZIMO MX645 decoder.

I`ll return when she is fully dressed...................................................

There's a real argument for not painting these beautiful metal builds, John.  :cool wink

I agree with Max about painting such an example of good workmanship.
I suppose it has to be done in the end .
