About this creation
This model was sparked by this thread at JLUG. I was planning on doing this thing anyway, but I built it earlier than I planned after Adrian Drakeís comment.

Most of this thing is inspired by this MOW unit. However, the cab (Yes, cab, NOT cockpit) is stolen from this.

Features include pneumatic landing gear, robotic arms to work on track, and a gauge checking trolley thingy. The engine is inspired by a radial engine that was displayed recently in .technic, (You KNOW I'm a talentless hack who can't build the actual, working one.) combined with a retro-styled one and a Roborider canister lid sandwiched in between that mess. This is also my first foray into greebling, and if you look carefully youíll notice some train parts used in there as well. I guess trainheads ARE creative after all :-P

4th April, 2005: I must say that despite having scrapped this thing, its turned into a personal favourite of mine-- and from what I can tell, the public's. Today I stumbled across this Japanese blog, which links back to the model's BS gallery (Scroll down to the middle). If the author of the blog ever reads this, you're welcome to email me. My address is on the main page.

   Random phallic projections from the front are always cool.

   Greeble action. Notice the use of TRAIN switch levers and TRAIN decorative sides, apart from the standard-issue stuff. Its a really nice way to get rid of the two extra switch levers that come with each set of points.

   Can you believe that Ross Crawford said this looks like a dog squatting to take a crap? I kamakazied this into his DEMAG for that one.

   The air compressor is attached horizontally as it would look too weird any other way. When not in use, it is held down to the rest of the craft by a technic Ĺ pin.

   The robotic arms that work on the track are remote-controlled. It's always good to have that extra help!

Larry, please note the delibrate incorrect use of 'it' to piss you off.

   Retro style engine at the back. Iím not sure, but I think I cribbed these off of one of Soren Robertís models. I tried to get in some greebling in the canister lid's cavity, but it was hard to work with just one stud to attach everything to and STILL not make it look stuck on.

   Kevoh sucks.

   Iím sorry, I didnít mean that. I just had to get it out of my system.

   Nah, Iím just messing. I meant it. Feel free to leave more anti-Kevoh demonstrations in the reviews.

Woooow, I didn't know you could make something this great! Very sweet details, I dig them all. This design could easily be changed to a space cruiser. You know, Blacktron, hippies, all that crap. Anyway, keep building detailed stuff. Rock on. -Josh PS- I give you permission to post my bike on lugnet.

Well, done Samarth. The engine rocks. When in doubt, crib from Soren. That's the best policy. Keep up the good work.
