Free-lance box cab B-B industrial locomotive. This one-piece 3D-printed plastic body is designed to fit a Rokuhan Shorty SA-001-1 Z-scale chassis (not included). The body is held in place with two straight pins (not included) through the side sill. It is suggested the builder fabricate and install metal weights inside the body as shown in the instructions diagram to improve traction, although the Shorty comes with built-in weights and traction tires. It is also suggested the builder install Rokuhan A019 knuckle couplers which are compatible with Micro Trains Line Nn3 couplers. May be used with optional "C03_ShortyTop" for easier fitting of LED headlights. (C03_210325)
GENERAL NOTE: These craftsman kits consisting of 3D printed resin plastic parts are NOT as strong or flexible as the “engineering” plastics many of you will be used to in railway models, nor even as strong as conventional injection molded styrene. HANDLE THE PARTS CAREFULLY TO AVOID BREAKAGE. Wash the parts in isopropyl alcohol aided by a soft brush. Very thin parts of the kit can be strengthened by applying very small droplets of CA adhesive with the tip of a pin or needle to the back of the thin area after the parts dry.
