That's great.
How about a barrel of gunpowder, a large weight, a safe and an anvil?

What colors did you use for your wonderful layout ? Thanks in advance for your reply.

Hi Kerluk,

The basic groundwork was painted with two coats of B&Q "Harvest Field" emulsion.

We used acrylics to paint for shading / weathering, the dynamite and the bombs, and aerosol red primer for the corrugated iron.

Hope this helps,

Les

In reality this is a Kato 11-103 with a 3D printed chassis (cheers, Tom :) ), with a modified keyring (Wile E sitting on a golf ball firing machine) at the front, with a copper pipe rocket lashed to a cradle on the back.

Wonderful critter. :D Could you share a few pics of this loco ? What Tebee chassis did you use ? Thanks.

My mistake - it was this chassis:

and not a TeeBee one.

Hi Les, I like how this has turned out. Gn15 has often been about whimsy, but has tended to go for Emmet. You have made something fresh: congratulations. I, my children and my grandchildren would love to be able to see it.

Hi Peter,

Thank you for your kind words. I'm glad you like how it turned out. It is due out at two more shows this year, both however are in N Ireland :D
