|Hollow figure fitted on seat box giving me a chance to hide the RC receiver.|
Having made the figure's bottom fit comparatively tightly to the seat box's removable lid, I glued the figure solidly to the lid with AC glue. With the glue dry, I took off the lid incl. figure and carved a rectangular opening through seat and the figure's bottom. Almost the entire receiver fits inside the figure.
|Some parts for the loco are now finished and I have even primed the bonnet. The figure is patiently waiting for the AC-glue to harden.|
|Off with the lid on the box and an opening was quickly carved with my Dremel.|
|The figure almost swallows up an entire receiver. The wires will be held in the seat box and connected to battery and motor through a hole in the floor.|
