Just an update on my entry for this year's Dave Brewer Memorial Challenge. This year's challenge is to build a critter. I decided that my entry would be a miniature ride on critter as I outline previously. http://gn15.info/forum/viewtopic.php?t=9953&sid=84aed1c77ba929cf3b61bdc043f5f84b
Initially my entry was going to be in 1/24th scale, I therefore started by building a driver from odd body parts in my scrap box. This went quite well. However, when I started comparing the plan with the Kato tram chassis that I had chosen to use to power my model, I realised that the figure would be undersized compared to the model.
I have now upped the scale of the model to 1/20. This is closer to the 7.25" gauge of the prototype, although there are still some compromises to accommodate the Kato tram chassis.
I have started on a new driver, using body parts from a racing car pit crew that I have. Pictures to follow midweek.
