*Looks at traditional steam locomotive.*

*Looks at the cowling job.*

(This is not a comment on the model, which is excellent - just the creative leanings of the people who streamlined it IRL :P).

Sorry, how many versions...? I thought I counted three. :look:

The excellence just keeps on coming. These are all strong contenders. :thumbup:

Thank you, that motivates me very much

Ok, but I count more like two and a half ;-)
and the last half conversion is unfortunately only digital so far. But I have ordered the missing red wheels and after erhalt I want to convert the 003 also to the black / red color scheme.

And I'm happy that also a WIP model made it to the frontpage of Eurobricks, thanks!

Final sprint:

I have created a few more pictures of the technology used:

OcTRAINber 2022 Maintenance 1944

 

OcTRAINber 2022 Drive train

 

Also, the 1944 version is now "finished":

Yesterday and today I used for photo and video creation, have fun:

Wow what a superb job! :wub_drool:
The technical solutions are superior to excellence and the complexity of the whole project with the three versions is impressive! *oh2*
Great job ...my preference however goes to the classic black locomotive with red wheels in sight! :pir-huzzah2:

Somehow I scored an own goal. I could have ordered the red wheels immediately at the start of the project in early September, then they would already be there and I could have done the 2nd conversion already. So I have to wait now just yet, will probably happen in December.
I was at the start of the project but also not sure that I get it done in time and that it is also what good.

Not 2, but 3 iterations!

Absolutely incredible models and great reading about the history of the transitions. Every time I see a steam engine such as this it boggles my mind. That running gear is beautiful!

cheers,

Ah, that’s really galling. But sometimes you just don’t know how things will go when you place these orders.

But it doesn’t take anything away from the stellar work you’ve put into all of these builds and designs. You’ve really achieved some fantastic results and have worked very hard to make not just two but three versions.

Both models are stunning, but the way you managed to recreate the round nose of the red one leaves me wordless. *huh*

Excellent job, it perfectly gives the idea of all the aerodynamic efforts the German railways were constantly applying to make the locomotives more efficient. :pir-love:

Ciao!

true. especially if you look at some of the pre ww2 era trains and racecars they dont look that old. for example the streamlined cars that raced on the avus hitting insane speeds for the time or the double decker passenger cars of the hamburg lübecker eisenbahn.  wild stuff.

I say many thanks....

Both locomotives can be seen next weekend at the Bricking Bavaria 2022 in Fürth / Germany. If who is in the neighborhood ;-)

Well, @Ts__, clearly you have shown your genius again.  CONGRATULATIONS!!!!

Your steam locomotives are some of the best I’ve seen, and the streamlined BR05-003 is no different.  Brilliant work, and a very well deserved win.

Best,

As we say in the UK, I think you was robbed. Your standard of finish and presentation was waaaay better than mine and I had you down as the overall winner this year. No doubt your wonderful creations will be getting lots of admiring attention this weekend at Bricking Bavaria, which will be richly deserved.

Congratulations nonetheless for your win.

No, I don't have that feeling. I am happy about winning the category and your building was the favorite for me. All good ;-)

Yes, it was a beautiful (but also exhausting) weekend. A small snapshot I have already done:
