Kit type
This is a 3D printed item, using a fine ABS like resin and is a complete body (with separate roof and wheel) to create an O scale miniature railway loco (7mm / foot) running on 16.5mm track.

This was commissioned by a customer who liked my O9 locos and wanted an O16.5 version.

This engine is modelled on a Ransomes & Rapier 80hp diesel powered engine built in 1937.

The first 4 photos are of a body mounted to the chassis (couplings, motorised chassis and track are not included in the sale).  In addition, the roof requires lengths of 1mm brass rod (2x 15mm & 2x 37mm). You probably already have the brass rod in your modelling stash, but it is available as an option, if required..
Photos 5 to 6 are of an example of the item as you will receive it. 

These are genuine photos taken with a full frame 35mm SLR and not digital representations. You simply need to remove the two formers from the base, remove the wheel from its base, file / sand the bottom edge flat and smooth the roof. It is then ready to paint / attach the roof / fit to the chassis (not supplied) and add the couplings (not supplied).

It is designed to run on a Tenshodo (or equivalent) 26mm wheelbase chassis with 10.5mm wheels (not supplied). The extended axles will need to be cut back to be flush with the faces of the wheels and it then slots into the body (see photo 7). 

Alternatively, LocosnStuff has designed a chassis with a flywheel that can also be fitted into the body (see photo 8). They will be able to advise on how it should be fitted.

The body uses two standard Peco GR-102 009 couplings (not supplied) that slot neatly into the bodywork (see photo 7).

Bear in mind the size of these items when looking at the detail in the photos. The loco body is 60mm long, 27mm wide and 48mm high.

Please ask if you have any questions or if you need more than are listed.
