Very, very nice Pete. Well done. I will open the bubbly and toast your success. I believe this is your third engine.

So what's next??

Nice one Pete, it took a little time to get straightened out, and doesn't it always, but a good runner at the end.

Yes indeed - I'm green with envy! Or is that from the lime ice cream I had for dessert?

Hi guys
Thanks very much for the comments and support during the build, but the time has come to call it.
The Wallaby is everything " ETW " said it was.
A nice docile little Engine that's easy to start and will run all day.
My version has an almost tractor like feel to it that I like and have really enjoyed the journey,
Thank you again for sharing it with me.
Pete

That's awesome, Pete. The throttle response is great!

I especially love the pool table in the palms, but I guess that's not the part I'm supposed to be looking at. ;)

I'm Sure we could sort some thing tel

This place could end up with more wallabys than the kitchen in the Ettomogah Pub ;D

If you do look like doing another batch Bez, just keep me in mind and let me know how many shekels.
