It took me a while to realise that custom coupling was a spring; I thought it was a wire tie like the way I brought separate tenders closer to the cabs. Your method looks better since I kept the hooks while you found a solution for the lack of another peg. I'd like to see how you attached it.

I asked because the hook couplings are hinged using slots on the sides and only the eye ones are mounted on pegs (which makes it slightly harder to fit a coupling with a different attachment method). Hope this clears it up.

so now I have finished my custom of my character Alice (oc) I did this I thought the old model was lazy and so I did a new model for her I quite like the newer one more than the old one. Although I took the black wheels from the original except the middle wheel which I painted black so that's interesting the face is from the old model which I will keep as a piece of the past.

I also did an Ertl model of her too the wheels came form an old Ertl duck

and here are most of her models in a line (her original ertl I did repainted betaken up Ertl Thomas but wasn't good)

Love the work T-Real, especially the Ertl one. Its amazing how much the shell looks like a Thomas when stickers and the color are removed. Nice job! Smile

While it is technically correct since they're both LBSC designs (Stepney: A1, Thomas: E2), I'd say it's more similar to Oliver with a better boiler size. Alice V1 was made from a Thomas, though.

Happy Birthday T-Real
Levi looks great T-Real. I like the 'Cab Forward' look for him especially with the large rear cab (now front) real window openings.
Do you reverse the battery or use a Mr Motorman to run him as a Cab Forward too?
