Hmmm, dunno. The locomotive looks awfully well-streamlined for something using Ju 52/3m components  ;)

 ;) it is a chapelon locomotive, and I found it to look quite 1930-ish, like the Ju52,
but I am not very knowledgeable in terms of locomotives  ;)

... I am not very knowledgeable in terms of locomotives ...

Nor am I. I just found amusing the notion of a locomotive being more streamlined than a corrugated-metal airplane  :D

Add some spray bars, paint it yellow and you could have a crop duster! I do have that Skymaster kit laying around in pieces…….

You came up with another one of those meant to be combinations.  Good build, could be OOB.   :smiley:

Ju-52 & Ju-86 also looks like a could have been.  :smiley:

That Transall C-160/V-22 Osprey match up is well balanced and looks like it would actually work.  :smiley:
