Hi,

I am building Trumpeters 1/35 kit of the WR 360 C 12 diesel locomotive and have bought Baluard's resin kit of the engine. It's a pretty crude resin kit and I have not found any good close ups of it on the net. Does any one here have access any good shots??



Kind regards

Hi Tom
Thanks for the links, great material. I have spent many hours (many more than cutting the plastic so far) Googling, and I have found quite a few pages on the V36 - some containing close ups - but very few having good quality pictures of the engine.



Kind regards

I found this:


While probably not 100% correct it represents what most diesel look like (even those used today).

Having worked - a number of years ago - in the logistics field as what our company called a "rider" (I was the one that rode along with the load as an observer) other than size due to the number of cylinders there was not really THAT much difference in any diesel engine that I can recall.

Many thanks! That looks quite a lot like the Deutz I am building. I have seen some modifications being made over the years (decades rather) however most look like local adaptations mainly regarding "plumbing" and wiring.
