This model was great fun to build! At first i thought i build something like this engine but i realized with every step i came closer to the original model. Hope you like it! Comments welcome! I've uploaded some tricky building situations check them out!
Hi Tibor. This is a GREAT locomotive -- one of the nicest and most detailed I've seen. It was great to see that you included an LDD file, but when I tried to open it, the program tells me that your file is in an old format, and only opens with most of the pieces missing. Do you have an updated version of this file?

I accidentally noticed your train while browsing through the builders in the "Alternate designs of a Creator" group - I'm stunned by all the details and realism of this train, congratulations!
Now I'm off to check your other builds too.
Very Nice bro. I've had the opportunity (when i was a young kid growing up under communism) to actually work on these machines. As a school competition (project) I had to make a cutaway fuel injector of this machine in the 2nd year and in the 3rd an actual cutaway engine display. That later on went to the auditorium of the school. I won the competition with it and 10,000 Forint.
Very nice, Tibor! I love how you built the black&yellow color scheme in front of the cowling - very creative! I also like the use of different windows to build the cab as well as the high rails surrounding the locomotive in its entire front part. Great job, and super-close to the original you showed us! Best regards, Steffen

Wow this is incredible, it looks just lke the original, And the details are simply stunning, I love the intricate use of "cheese" slopes to make the stripes on the front. ~T
