Balkan Models has not been sitting idle. Apart from starting the current forum, I have been in the process of designing a kit that puts the Adtranz bogies to $$$ good use :D . There have been other proposals but these belong in other topics ;)

Partly built first attempt with the test fret and busy revising design. I like it though. :D It might not be Greek but it is another BM surrogate offspring. :lol:

Christo;

Is that SAR Electric double loco serie 20, the 'new era' beggining of your 3D printing activity?

Wondering, as Theo, when does the Craiova will come...

Regards...

Trying out the primed body with a home made chassis made up of two Halling bogies. The performance was excellent. Pulling power with 350g of weight equally so. The bogie side frames are drawn but it is time to incorporate some changes to the blueprints and add some more details.
