Hi Guys!

A few weeks ago, an other forum started a GroupBuild for Post 3rd World War (Post Apocalyptic) vehicles...
I've decided to make a diorama of a train station, with lots of junk, trash, wrecks, etc...I started to make a train, but I didn't find much information about the train I wanted to build, so I've decided to make two trains :) The first (on the pics) is inspirated by a french made diesel one, use in Uganda nowdays, this will be a wrecked train, the engine from the back were miss...
The main diesel engine will be a Hungarian M32, with some extras like machine guns, grenade launchers, and an AA or Anti tank gun ... :)
The model is 1:35 scale, and 27cm long at the moment...

PS.: Sorry about the huge pix, theres some problem with the pic sharing site...

Hope You'll like it :)


There are no good kits, bad kits or grail kits, just kitbash fodder.


I really like that idea! Really interesting topic. :thumbsup: Very imaginative!

Must, then, my projects bend to the iron yoke of a mechanical system? Is my soaring spirit to be chained down to the snail's pace of matter?


Cool another Macal scratch build masterpiece :wub: :bow: :bow: :bow:

Scratchbuilt locomotive!  Cool.   I'm already impressed.  I look forward to seeing this one as it develops.

We don't just embrace insanity here.  We feel it up, french kiss it and then buy it a drink.


Here he goes again! Prepare to be amazed and astounded, step right up and see the colossal post apocalyptic wonder train!

Great start, just like last time leaving me hungry for more!

Going to have to keep a weather eye on this build...it looks to be another masterpiece !


I really like to see such very different ideas on this site. Keep up the work!  :thumbsup:
In want of hobby space!  The kitchen table is never stable.  Still managing to get some building done.


Another Macal special to watch with intrest!
