Hey all! This is my very first MOC. Well I really don't want to call it a MOC, because I built off of @Murdoch17's Frisco 1522 model, which can be found here. His Frisco model gave a lot of inspiration to build my own Frisco model, but not the 1522.
The Frisco 1501 is currently sitting in Rolla, Missouri. I have a lot of history with this locomotive. My great grandfather was the one who engineered her, and my grandaunt can tell stories about her family putting her on the train and taking her to Rolla to visit her aunt for the week. Well without a further a do, here's the model!
I do plan on building her, I just have to save up the money! Being paid minimum wage doesn't leave you with a whole lot
Here's the cab, it's nothing special, honestly.
(Yes, I'm aware that it's missing an entire wheel, I just now realized that.) My biggest complaint about the model is how the tender is too squarish, any ideas on how I can smooth it out a bit?
Here's a nice side shot.
Overall, I'm quite pleased about how this turned out. There are a few things I still need to fix, but I'm always adding on to it! If you guys have any suggestions, please feel free to say them!
