It's a mixture of Fleischmann loco chassis and wheels/Merker and Fischer whitemetal-Brass superstructure and tender is Roco tender drive with Gunther whitemetal-Brass body/with extra detailing using Weinert parts.
I still have some way to go until its completed.
All the best,
David
It's looking good already!

its looking good david. do you have a picture of the loco running with a straight sided tender? i have had a look through my books and can only find a barrel tender on the loco.

Sorry i am being pickey again. this is a very bad habbit. i am doing my best to quash it. i am seeking therapy and going to weekly meetings....

Slightly off topic, but the BR 9F with the Franco-Crosti boiler was not the worlds best looking loco, and when did you last see one of them modelled?

Southern Railway olive lined green, very nice


I for one am very impressed with a lot of designs that emanate from outside the UK. I just wish we had a bigger loading gauge so that larger, more powerful locomotives could have been built. I also think there is an art to designing a locomotive to have the pipework etc. readily accessible, but still be good looking. Perhaps this is why I like the BR Standard designs so much as well as certain German and French locomotives from before WW2 that had this feature.

Dan

My Roco Br 57. Is the gem of my steam locos.
The Br 57 or KPEV G10's served a great deal till the 1980's in Turkey.
Heard that Roco is launching in July a dcc model.

Is the dcc version a G10 or a Br57? I had seen the DCC ready G10 but will hold off for DCC ready one if it's coming!

Neil,

The newly launched model will be a Br 57 of the DB with a digital interface for the first time.

Also among the new models will be a Br 50ük of the DB with transition war loco engineers cab with round roof and sealed side window.

Am also looking forward for the Br 24
