Years ago I was able to buy pantographs from the Philotrain production line at the time of their NS 1100 model. Because their model was far outside my own budget, there was only the option to build it myself.
I've been drawing the model for over a year. It seems a fairly simple model, but the roof is double curved, folded and tapered. I've seen many self-built models that often just weren't. In the end I managed to capture all facets in the basic form.
After the design was realized, there was of course still a lot of structural design to be done. The locomotive is equipped with two motors 20/20B and with current collection on all wheel sets.
The bogies and internal frame are printed in PA12 nylon.
The interior is also made of PA12 nylon and the breakable parts are cast in brass.
The hood is printed in the Accura Xtreme.
And in the end the whole thing was painted in a Berlin Blue color.
