The unit is very quiet in operation and smooth.
It has been in the paint shop and now sports B.R. green livery, nameplates yet to be attached.
As a model, it may not be entirely to scale but it looks far better than the Wrenn offering.
On another point, I recently purchased this crazy bulk a King. A friend pointed out to me that the name does not match the cast number on the cab side. Is this usual?
That sounds great. Can you post some pics?
