I created a scale model (1:160) of the "Plan U" train from the Dutch railway company "Nederlandse Spoorwegen". The biggest challenge was the head of the train that consists of ever changing rounded parts. The model is made to fit on standard Tomix TM-03 chassis' and it's just a matter of fitting the parts together, only 8 tiny screws needed. This way a working model can be made without soldering or any other fancy crafting techniques.

This is just a first proof of concept and changes will be made to improve the model.

Awesome!
Love the amount of detail you've captured in such a small scale.
