Reply to "Who makes a quality RS-3 Diesel?"

Can anyone tell me why they would want "smoke" in an Alco diesel? The real ones belched black smoke (especially on start up), and black smoke isn't about to happen in our miniature worlds.

NO but the White smoke coming out of our models is close enough! If the Mfgs are able to electronically reproduce that turbo lag of smoke output and coincide with the labor of the diesel sound unit, I am all in on that option!

 

HEre are some pics of Weaver and WBB [ex K-line] Rs3's

With the exceptions of the D&H Rs3's purchased by the P. co, All PRR Rs3's from the MFG came with sealed beam dual headlights. The Williams/ WBB's are tough to remove the lenses from the shell without damage to the shell for this needed detail.

Unfortunately, one can't really make a "long Tank" version of this rs3 due to the fuel tank being so wide.  This PRR model in the 1:1 had a Long tank underneath. See below the Weaver version.

NOte for Superdetailers: if you want an RS3 with the" LONG tank" version, the weaver models "battery boxes" can be cut down and flushed with the rest of the fuel tank without interfering with the speaker.  See 3 pics Above re the WBB version.

I hope this helps!
