1⁄35Ko1 Diesel Locomotive
The Ko1 is a resin kit which required a lot of extra work due to the poor material, fit and the lack of clear instructions. Details were added from Geoff's spares box and all the riveting was done using Micro-Mark's O scale rivet detail sheets (#84987).
Figures are also made from the "people spares' box. The model was painted using the hair spray method and weathered using MIG and AK weathering washes and Tamiya's weathering master sets.
The track is Trumpeter.
On some photos you may see further additions to the future diorama that Geoff is working on: Trumpeter's High Sided Gondola without the wooden planking, on board is Revell's 4500L Mercedes Maultier; the other wagon is a Dragon Typ Ommr Flatbed without the armour. It is carrying the old Italeri Opel Maultier Halftrack with an Italeri Nebelwerther hitched.
The locomotive in the background is Trumpeter's BR86, also painted using the hair spray method.
