Very cool model.  Along with everything else, the paint scheme is pretty cool too.

Your creativity is very inspirational.  Thanks for sharing the ride...

Tuning in a bit late here, but while searching for something else, I ran across your WIP thread for it, then had to see how it turned out. Fabulous, and as folks who know me somewhat well will say, I have a particular weakness for demented thinking. Hey, I resemble that remark!

Looks good to me. Nothing wrong with "what ifs" or fantasy builds, especially if it pleases the builder. I think another motor might have just been way cool !

I think it's cool looking,and back in the 70's there was a dragster call freight train,and it had two motors,and other one call the odd couple.

I really like it, :) 

but,

You should have listened to yourself on the second engine,

would have made it even cooler Man!

B)

Pure imagination running wild!

Thank You for sharing

:lol: 

 

Ray, You said it all by saying . . . . . .  

 

"I BUILT IT FOR FUN"

 

That is what it is all about too!

 

FUN!

 

I hope to never "stop" having fun with this hobby,

I have so many to build and and am enjoying every minute!

The Wife says I have enough kits, I say, "NEVER!"

Again, really cool build, it is different, shows creativeness on your part

Thank You again for sharing with Us

Later

Russ

;)

Ray,

 

That is such a crazy build and super cool idea.  I've wanted to do this on one of my builds as well but am stumped on what rear axles to use.  If you don't mind sharing, can you let us know which kit(s) you used for the rear axles?

 

Thanks,

Don

I dig when a builder throws the box away "boxes we don't need to think inside no stinking boxes" in my worst Mexican accent. Very cool and fun build I give it eight thumbs up

Ray, I love this!

Who could walk past a title like that??!!

It really made me smile, because I enjoy seeing what wonderful creative minds we have among us and because you gave life to parts in your stash that might've been consigned to the styrene scrapheap!

Top marks.
