Just put on first paint on the Emsfors and Knallhatten locos, along with a few wagons. All items below needs more paint, just me who is impatient ... nice to show how it looks right now.

Decided to paint all motor locos pale light flat blue from now on, so Simplex got first blue as well. The green still looks through a bit, but will vanish on following layers.

The new mine wagons really are great. Need some tweaking, axle holes got a bit tight, but easy fixed. Also thinking about doing a bit smaller versions since looks huge now compared to the figure. The prototype is running on chinese 750mm lines, so maybe not so strange. Really tempting to make a chinese Px48 to pull them to, but for another day.

The Nitro Special Edition got equally nice. The difference in size really is showing here, but the Knallhatten loco is this small in reality. Note how it fits like a glow on top of the Halling motor chassis ...:wink:

Emfors and the Lessebo loco is just loosely placed on there donor chassis but gives a good taste of how they will look when assembled.
