I'm the first to admit it but I am a hacker. I don't have the tools, don't have the know-how, don't have the patience and I'm a big believer in the 10 foot rule. (For those who don't know the 10 foot rule, it simply means that if the model looks OK from 10 feet away, it looks OK to me!)
Anyway, I've posted a photo of some kind of WDW engine I'm junking together for my Garden RR, the Fort Wilderness Mine & Transportation Ry. I have some trepidations about posting anything after seeing the work of Dave Sheegog and meeting Barry Bogs and seeing his work. But, they're professionals and I am a hacker! My goodness would I like to have their talent!
This little engine is made up of Hartland, LGB, Aristocraft, Bachmann, Ozark Miniatures, PVC, wood, kitchen cabinet parts, brass tubing, and other stuff one might find in the junk & parts bin. It's not supposed to resemble anything real, it's just different and has the colors I like. It still needs final paint and then outside it goes. When complete, I'll post another and hopefully clearer picture. It'll be pulling a 3 old time mine cars on a second loop on my FWM&T.
