Two of the four motor bogies that I am currently preparing for a friend.

With a little more filling, filing, fine detailing and weathering, one could probably achieve better results than me. ;) and far less £££ than 3d prints. Painting and staining the face of the wheels will also improve the looks without losing electric pick up capability.

great work Christo, with some effort in detailing and a good paintwork it captures the feeling of the prototype!

Yes BarbaPanagos what you say is true. And as I said many times already this kit started life as a basic kit but then different modelling demands begun to arrive. If I did it again I would have designed everything up from the beginning.
