Twin engined rail

6 posts in this topic

Posted (edited) · Report post

Gonna try for a quick build here. Inspired by Barry Price's brilliant multi-engined creations. i jammed together two AMT Garlits Wynns Chargers. Gonna be injected rather than blown. Tyres are from AMT's Street Freak Mustang. Gave them a good sanding down in the power drill. Sidewall profile a lot more realistic plus a smidgen of crown on the tyre.

Scratchbuilt the injector intakes. Just in the process of forming the throttle linkages. Not gonna go too heavy on the detail, wanna make this a quick one.

Made the chop here!
