Quite good indeed! Did the tank come from an ERTL milk tanker?

I don't think so.  Isn't Ertl the same as Take-n-Play? With magnetic couplings? This didn't have magnets. It would be about 15 years old. My son had a lot of mixed Thomas toys.

They don't if you remove the tank, I believe that is an ERTL.

It' still impressive either way. Smiley

I've managed to do a bit more tonight, and the claw is certainly starting to take form.


The Faces: These will be interchangeable, though the left face is going to be painted more accurate!






The Claw/Grabber: Still Working on it currently, but it is looking splendid.




Modified Body: How it looks now with the front removed!

Then it was probably Ertl. I don't think Trackmaster has been around that long.

Looking good with the progress so far, Stepney. Personally, I didn't think the Magic Railroad Trackmaster face would ever fit an OO gauge Warship, but it looks like you're on the right track to making it happen...Looking forward to seeing the final product (especially the Magic Railroad version!).

Looking good Stepney! Cannot wait to see you progress with this! Any chance of Dodge, Splatter and Lady afterwards?  Grin
