This is a big chap to say the least and it runs very well indeed..

 

Its about bl00dy time I bought something that ran properly.......ahem. 

 

Only concern is that if I'm not paying attention and it runs away, whatever it hits will be demolished.......

Oh.

 

Oh I say!

Did you place a model bus too close to that?

At least my guess was right, but you appear to have bought the Pannier equivalent of a Chieftain tank.

 

Nice. I had an old whitemetal one, my first kit built ( not by me.) locomotive. An impressive beastie.

It is indeed an impressive model and a very good example of how to produce a modern model of a pannier. If you want to take the top off this one, to get to the motor or another part of the chassis, you just undo the screws and it all comes off. You don't need advanced qualifications in complex dismantling to achieve this, unlike a certain contemporary model pannier.

 

Rob, do bear in mind that this one has a coreless motor, so feedback controllers are not advised!

You can never put a model bus too close to anything.....especially a parapet....

Klaus is congratulated on his pin point accuracy on his return to France.

Nothing to worry about normally  not unless the Beastly Well Tanks are about....

 

 

To be fair, I wouldn't fancy their chances with the 94xx. I think he'd do 'em...........
