That's a very nice-looking resin shell.  What couplers do Brazilian modelers generally use?

Thanks Pedro. If your friend is looking for a bigger market, NdeM (Mexico) had, I believe, 90 of the G12 model.

Looks like the pictures show two different version - a close clearance cab and a standard cab. NdeM had both, close to evenly split between the two. NdeM use dynamic brakes on the later units, so NdeM would need another version with a close clearance cab without dynamic brakes. I'd have to check but I think the first standard cabs NdeM units also did not have dynamic brakes.

I'd be curious if David has considered the Mexican market.

We have some different versions of G12 in Brazil because the railroad gauges and the requeriments of the each railroad. If the Mexican models are similar to the Brazilian models, David can also consider to produce to the Mexican modelers. I think the main question is the adjustment of the drawings of the 3D printer.

Just looking at photos, the Mexican version looks close. I suspect that the gauge of the trucks would be the main difference. Mexican locomotives would be standard gauge. What did Brazil use? If David is interested, I can make some inquiry on the Mex List about any other differences.

If I can turn my finances around, I'd be interested in a few of the G12's.

   In Brazil, we have metric gauge (1,000mm) and broad gauge(1,600mm) G12s. Along the time, many units were modified by the railroads, like the Vale ones that received a new cab for better vision of the tracks by the crew.
   I contated David about your proposal to produce to the Mexican market. As soon he reply, I will post here.
 
 Some pictures of the metric gauge brazlian G12s:
11) FCA;

12) Acesita 200 is a former EFVM / Vale G12 with new cab style;

13) Old RFFSA.

pedrop,

thanks for the great pictures. Very interesting that Brazil had both meter and broad gauge versions.
