  1. I have no intention of building this. I was just bored and started messing with the cab shape, then decided to finish the thing. It's probably not as "flowing" as it should be, but, then again, it's Lego.

    Alright, worked on this for about 20 minutes. I think it captures the shape decently: And here is the file: http://s000.tinyupload.com/?file_id=30604395172345361241 Obviously, you're going to have to mess with the internals to make it suit the needs of the model, but the shell - at least - could potentially help.

    Thanks. I had absolutely no idea that part ever existed. What an amazingly useful piece. As for the color issue, use this: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000CPCRQI/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Black vinyl dye works so well on Lego that you cannot tell the part wasn't originally that color.

    Neat. What part is the center side window?

    Looked up the original - very Swastika-y :P. You did a good job capturing it... but why didn't you elect to do the version where the cladding had been dropped?

    I gotcha. I think a lot of smaller excavators lack a windshield though, so ditching it is likely okay in that regard:

    If you need help, let me know. I enjoy truck design a lot. Overall, I'd say you're like 98% of the way there - this thing looks like a complete beast. How many motors do you have inside? As an aside, it's nice to see someone from China admiring American locomotives. I had actually been considering doing one of these myself!

    Nice. Not a huge fan of the central trucks, but everything else is great.

    Unless the middle cab bar is integral to support, I'd dump it. It looks too much like a jail.

    Looks just like the real deal.
  12. No money. Like no money. If we get another stimulus, maybe I'll build the locomotive. If the loco gets done, the cars would eventually follow at some far-flung date.
  13. William Brewster: #8600: Trainset: The cars are probably about 4-5 studs shorter than they should be, but at some point, this is Lego, and it has to be able to run around some tracks.

    Thanks man. You're always really kind.

    Added some additional details, starting with the three-port exhaust on the skylining (utilizing a part I've never conscripted into this role before): Pumps to the rear of the last driver, right side: Completely redone tender trucks to better match the prototype (also a technique I've never used before):
