I tried to send a message to Christopher aka Rebel Locomotives to please do these in N scale but was denied by Shapeways as not a member .........rats .

I feel we in N have many lesser and obscure parts than this . I would start off with at least 10 if somebody would offer them .

I doubt the designer can scale it down. His thin walls and wires will be rejected.

Anybody willing to get me some drawings or pictures with a known size reference could be rewarded.

No luck finding any type traction motor with a useful object . This site has a few good shots http://cs.trains.com/trn/f/111/t/195517.aspx . I guess a desirable one would be the EMD D77 D78 used on first generation diesels . There is an ad that sells D87 s that fit the same diesels the D78 is used in . Many shots in Google but nothing with numbers . A diesel wheel that uses them is 40" diameter .

I think he is just trying to recover some of his losses from previous efforts.
