Tenderlok posted a topic in LEGO Train TechEDIT: Model's latest revision HERE! Dear train community, a while ago, I presented my model of a small industrial shunting engine (for information about the prototype, and to compare the pictures below with version 1.0, please see here). However, although it proved to be a strong and reliable little locomotive, I was never entirely happy with it: The roof turned out to be very flimsy, and the battery box and IR receiver were completely blocking the view through the cab. So when BuWizz was announced, and I realized that its height would be considerably lower than that of 84599, and it would need no additional receiver, I thought I should give it a try and rebuild my MOC (even though this meant that I had to get a smartphone… ). The revised model has been completed for a couple of weeks now, but it wasn’t until last week that a BuWizz app version was released which allowed to control two output channels via one slider, so I couldn’t let the engine run until then… (By the way: One more thing that I would really wish for would be an option to „lock“ the slider in a given position, so that you don’t have to keep your finger on the phone all the time when the engine is running. Maybe someone from BuWizz will read this… ) Following alterations have been implemented: - BuWizz replacing the rechargeable battery box - boiler diameter increased by one plate for better scale accuracy and a brawnier appearance - slightly larger, smoother side tanks - revised colour scheme without black striping (thus adding to the stouter look) - additional small windows in the cab front - completely redesigned cab roof with more prototypical profile and no longer needing transparent plates to support the door openings - handrails below the buffer beams for the shunting men - strings as sand pipes - improved shape of the cylinders - smaller headlights - (at least rudimentary) cab interior thanks to the reduced height of BuWizz But unfortunately, still no opening doors – sorry, Sergio! (I promise my next model will have them. And it will be a BIG model. REALLY big!) With BuWizz set to „slow“ mode, gentle and precise shunting becomes possible; something one couldn’t even dream about while using Lego’s IR remote control system. As always, you will find larger versions of the images in my Bricksafe folder. Comments are of course most welcome. Thanks for stopping by! Best regards, Sven EDIT: Model's latest revision HERE!
