Hi Jon,Good spot on the donor loco(s), Paul - in that case I revise my opinion slightly, as the mechanisms and body will be of better quality than I thought - however Phil's questions about the provenance of the RC system, lack of RC transmitter, and unknown type and state of the batteries are still very valid, and need to be answered; it should also be noted, as you mention, that the body is Gauge 1 (1:32) rather than G....
Your Otto-Garratt is fabulous, congratulations.Sarah
definitely avoid that one.
I created the baby Otto mentioned and is in fact the 2nd Garrett I have built, the first one I sold to a member of this forum a couple of years ago, it was based on 2 shortie loco's I had but it ended up huge, as garretts generally are. The otto provided a different challenge and was constructed using a mix of original body parts and plasticard, its great fun building your own and you don't have to spend large amounts of money to create something unique.
Here are another couple of other loco's I have built which were very easy to construct from ply and coffee stirrers.
