Hey no problem It's those little things I love in the details, who would have thought it wasn't done because there's no compressor?  Can't wait to see more, if I had some to spare I'd paypal you some cash just to see the finished product take form. :wink:

I don't know how they do it in the land of oz but here in the states most public works trucks have a trailer with a compressor unit normally pulled by a small dump truck like this http://ts4.mm.bing.n...5.1&H=160&W=160

Looks good thought it would be about 2 studs longer but it looks really well done.  Now can I undress the tiger? (continuing Barbie girl not sexual harassment)

Edit - we'll just keep to Lego talk.....we don't want to upset 'Ricecracker' below do we.

Sorry, just a little humour....no offence intended.
Has anyone tried building any small 4 cylinder cars.....not 4 wide though just doesn't look right with all the buildings.....like the width of a car is the same as a humble front door ? :look:

My only problem is the front end, due to the headlights.....six wide it will have to be otherwise it might not look like a Barina of sorts. :blush:
Any suggestions on the front end anyone ? :blush:

Thanks 'Alasdair', I saw that shunter on Goggle Images.....though I'm thinking a two axle type so I can use a motor from the high speed train.....dam where are those train guys and girls when you need them. (I've only ever MOC'ed one whole engine before.....not sure where I have stashed it...oops ! :blush: ).
Yeah, I like my little compressor too.....now I must also remember to knock up for track signals too....keep watching everyone (any more suggestions ?). :sweet:

Nice suggestion, but I was looking for a humble small shunter that's cheap but still realistic looking to make......please keep those suggestions coming. :sweet:

Small little thing but what about some traffic cones or warning signs around the jackhammer guy so he doesn't get run over or anything;)
