LGB or not?

Came across this. Couplings and wheels look very much like early LGB (Lemann.) stainz, but cab looks underscale and handrails seem to be brass
But never seen one quite like it before. Rods look home made to me. What do you think?
Does anyone recognise it? LGB or not?

Any chance of a shot of the underneath?

my guess is its got Lgb running gear, wheels couplings and maybe the odd detail part. The rest is scratch built

Looks like an Otto bottom end, but scratch built rods and superstructure?
The tender looks closer to a LGB offering, but shorter /squarer?.?

I reckon it's an amateur scratch build on one of those little diesel mechanisms :nod::nod:

I wonder if it is perhaps an LGB Test Prototype for the 2015/20151 type of loco?

I don't think that's an Otto chassis, and I've cut up plenty of them. Certainly a weird one. Being offered for sale on e-bay in Italy. Translated the text and it does seem to be 'hand built'/ Still no idea what it started out as though.
See ad for more pics.
