Hi Kevin,

I think I've sorted your over abundance of pics. :D

The loco looks very nice. Hoping you consider this is a complement but it looks very much in the style of Dieselwater's machines to me.

Cheers,

Hi Kevin,

Yeah, looking at Dieselwater’s profile the last time he signed in was May 2015. Those years sure go quickly.

Cheers,

That is quite a neat project! Did you do the 1/12 figure?
