Of course, you can have the Rx and ESC combined..

Yeah - plan B. I just need to check whether one of my T/xs is sufficiently up to date to be compatible :whew::whew:

Trouble is, being an Eidelburger, I bought a Micro Viper with wiring loom :wondering::wondering:

Mind you, incompatibility is the spice of life :nod::nod:

Especially if she has the income and the patability :devil::devil:

Got the colour right - it makes it look as if its metal rather than plastic.

All I've got to do now is to make it dirty :cool::cool::cool:

I put "Hustler" into Google and got some VERY odd results, can't see what they've got to do with small diesel locos (though admittedly some were "going like a train....")

:eek::eek::eek:;):rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl:

Jon.

But seriously, lovely job on that conversion! :)

Love seeing these mods/improvements to another "basic" loco............Maybe try one as an Irish "peat" engine! .......tom

I was worried that I might lose the original character of the Hustler, which is one of those locos that is so ugly it's beautiful, and I didn't want to distort the proportions too much.

The height was necessary as I model in 1:20.3, while the expanded width conceals the new chassis (Essel Engineering).
