The K4 or 4 6 2 Pacific would be great, but why not go for the crazy cool project, the Big Boy. How neat would that be in TGauge!

Hi Joe,

I'll surely see what can be done about a T gauge steam loco, can you please provide me with a few scale drawings? Or even artwork from any box? And basic measurements. I'll be able to start work soon.

Cheers!

Hey guys!

It's now 99.99% done...the bogies as you can see are a bit fat. I will have to reduce the width of the frames. That is a 2 min job. Let me know what you'll think.

Cheers.
JBM.

You can find lots of information on the Big Boy on the web. These are just a few drawings that I found.

Thanks, Joe.

I've managed to make a more simplified scale drawing using what you've provided. I can now start making the 3D model of the Big Boy in T gauge.... I'll PM you with images as I make progress.

Hi JBModels, I am really looking forward to seeing your 3D model of the Big Boy. I know it will be challenging to design!

Figured out the simplest way I can....now lets see how that pans out. I'll further contact you via PM. Lets keep this thread for UK stock.

Hi Mattinair,

I will post the finished CAD work images on my own thread. I've already started my own thread which has the Class 90 on it. Been having a problem with dad's Paypal account. So when that's sorted I'll put them up for sale.

That's not a bad idea... I think a ton of wagons can be done using etches. I think they will be cheaper too...
