10-2 Railroading

Here is another GP38 From my fleet. As the scale gets smaller – still in the range of 10-2 but now 160 th real size a problem of scale starts to really show up. Look at the size of the handrails! On a full scale version those handrails would be about 6″ across clearly a problem for the scale model. Going back to the full scale 10-0 version at 250,000 lbs this version should still weigh in at a staggering 1,500 LBS!!!   Personally I am glad it only weighs in at a total of 4 ounces. 

While many of the other measurements are close approximations of the full size item –  weight has clearly suffered in the 10-2 version.
