Hi, great job!
Can you tell me the dimensions of this model after assembled?
Thank you.

Hi!

Thanks! The length is about 46-47cm (together with the tender), I guess around 50cm together with the tracks beneath it. I don't remember the height and width, but if you really need it, I'll measure it.

Hi,
I bought one of these kits, then I will need a display to store that.
Could you measure the height, please?
Thanks.

I've measured it. Height is 6.3 cm, width is 3.5 cm.

antoniutti said...

Thank you very much!

No problem. If you need advice on assembling the kit, just let me know. Also, if you find a solution for displaying the locomotive in a case or something, please tell me about it. I haven't found a good solution until now.

jus bought this one, great tips, thanks. the painting allready stresses me out, and havent even started yet, lol.

I'm glad my tips are actually useful for other persons too. You shouldn't be so stressed about the painting, applying the decals is the really tough job...

does the track come with it?

Bazsó-Dombi András said...

Yepp, the track comes with it, but it too needs to be painted :)

That looks great! Well done...I would love one of those!

Spacetime said...

Really impressive! I love Revell Model Kits since I was a kid. I mainly focus on airplanes but this locomotive looks gorgeous!

Bazsó-Dombi András said...

Thanks! It's really one of my favorites too. And now that I've managed to put it in a glass box, I'm at peace because the dust is not destroying it.

How large is the headlight in mm

How big is the headlight in millimeters

Bazsó-Dombi András said...

I'll measure the headlight as soon as I get a chance (probably not sooner than 2 weeks from now). I estimate it to be around 2mm in diameter.

I believe the parts 10 and 101 that you mentioned go between the cow catcher and the first cylinder just above the first small wheel. I too found that there were two extra parts, but found they fit in this area. The spot looks kinda bare otherwise. After studying some photos of the Big Boy 4023 in Omaha Ne, I decided that they do indeed go there. =]

Wow! That's really nice, Vamp! And I'm really glad that my guide actually helped you in the process of assembling it :)
