Apologies, couldnt help sneaking that one in, I blame that guy down in New Zealand, Glen I think his name is, all his fault :roll:
I will now leave you in peace to count rivets while I get some sleep :wink:


:oops: Guilty! :oops:

Great job bending the legs and arms on Santa! I'm really impressed!
Its a really solid casting. Did you heat it up and bend it, or cut it up and sculpt new parts?

I cant take any credit here Glen, thats how he came out of the pack :)
Aristo-craft part # ART-60025 Seated Train Engineer Santa
and for anybody else that might be looking for Santa, the standing one is
Aristo-craft part # ART60026 Standing Santa.
A bit underscale as they are supposed to be for Gauge 1 :?: The standing one works out at just over 7' tall in 1:32 and just over 6' in 1:29, while in 1:24 he is about 5' 3". Never having met the same one twice, I have no idea how tall the real Santa is, I'm usually asleep when he visits, or pretending to be :lol:

Just an idea at the moment...and here with a Gnine kit to show the difference - although the mite is on a bachmann brick whilst Tiny is sat up high on a KATO....

As a note...I'm not sure how the sacks got there....

But they look good sitting there. especially if it was running with no wagons behind. Why would you bother coupling a wagon on, when you can just take a small load on the bonnet.
