I’d like the modified Rheneus loco to have a driver but I didn’t have a figure that fitted into the cab. Some modellers modify figures, removing the legs, arms or heads (or all three!) and glue them back in more suitable positions. I wondered if I could do the same to this Dapol figure.
Using a sharp craft knife I cut away whatever he is holding and removed part of one arm and one leg so that he would fit into the cab. Next I cut off his head, repositioned it so that he will be facing the front of the loco and stuck it back on with plastic weld.
The motor takes up a lot of space in the loco cab and some further modifications were required to reduce the depth of the figure. Now he fits!
