Started with the first 'rebuilt' design of Amos & Andy - the streamlined bulldog-nose set-up with the cab on top of the nose.
There are slight differences in the bulldog-nose' shape between #1 and #10 the latter having a more slanted nose above the herald and a different window arrangement.
Up to now I'm not quite sure which unit I'll build...it depends a bit how the bulldog-nose will emerge from the trials.
Once again, body and basic roof are from an Aristo-Craft HW.
The bulldog nose is quite a challenge - compound curves in every direction!
I haven't make up a final decision on truck arrangement - either the earlier 1B-B or the final 1B-1B version. Additionally I'm not sure whether I should use the A1A-trucks of USA-Trains as a substitute (actually a 1B, too). There are a few differences in appearance between the 1B (asymmetrical axle distance, about 14' 6" wheelbase) and the A1A (symmetrical axle distance, app. 15'6" wheelbase).
Pictures of first assembly will follow
