Well done and quite out of the ordinary. Will you do a strip-down version too, or, does it already have an interior?

It's hollow.  I couldn't find a drawing of the stripped down version, just photos.

Might need to look elsewhere for the video as the link within the link above didn't allow for access.

Yep, petrol.  There were steam versions, I think they were repurposed industrial locos
