Another Plymouth

Well I'm on a roll now with these small chassis so it's on to another Plymouth, this time a 7 ton DL model. I used drawings from the Sept/Oct 2006 NG&SLG, but instead of a -2 model (low cab) I modeled a taller cab that hides the motor.

The chassis has double worm reduction with a total ratio of 210:1.
Again using Nigel Lawton's 10x12mm coreless motor.

This is round one of etching the body.
Basically it was a test etch to check the fit, but I got lucky and everything worked out so I kept going with adding details.

Still more to add... This locomotive is only 1-5/8" long!
