Maybach HL230 P45

Post by Gerrit Haarhoff » Tue Jun 25, 2013 10:15 am

I have decided to modify my Panther engine which I purchased from John Goode some years ago into the HL 230 P45. I also wanted to build the smoke generator into the engine in order to keep the engine bay details without having to move the smoke generator too far from the exhaust stacks. Here are some photos of the progress so far..

Very neat job you've done there - and a simple and clever way to hide the smoker too :D

Stunning engine! And with a hidden smoke generator, too! :shock:

Fantastic!

Can't wait to see it, er, "run"! :D

I am now finished with the engine bay - I wil do the final weathering at a later stage
