The Diesel 10 project has made it's start, this devious character is a missing link in the OO Thomas world, and though there is no current RTR model of him in the Hornby or Bachmann Thomas ranges, i feel that modelling him accurately will be a rather interesting project.
Diesel 10, is based on a British Railways 'Bo-Bo' Class 42 'Warship', with the only difference being that he has a claw mechanism mounted on his roof, enabling him to grab hold of and or crunch various objects around the Island of Sodor.
He is known for being 10/10, for his devious deeds and brutal strength, nicknamed 'The Blast from the Past' by the Sodor engines. He was quite a comical character in the Magic Railroad movie, but as the series progressed, became less threatening. Though his return in the CGI series special 'Day of the Diesels' brought back a bit of his comical humor.
|(Diesel 10 from Calling All Engines)|
For this project, i will be using the following items:
- LIMA Class 42 'Warship' Bo-Bo.
- Trackmaster Diesel 10's (With CGI and Magic Railroad faces).
- Humbrol colors 93 & 94.
Like before with the Harvey the Crane Engine project, work in progress photos will be posted during the projects course, with the final finished product images being displayed in the Completed Projects page of this blog, along with some test videos, which will be posted via our YouTube accounts!
