|" Si, I had my choice of the early or late Opel. I liked the early one better "
I have the 'late' Opel.
Not that much difference, is there ?
I seem to recall the 'late' one has the sunken spare-wheel holder in the side of the body work ...
... & the 'early' one doesn't.
You know what I really liked about the one I bought best ? ...
... It was about HALF THE PRICE of all the other versions I saw.
You prompted me to get mine out last night & have another good look at it.
Not sure what 'the plan' is yet.
So maybe I can 'steal' some ideas from another builder !
It's always interesting on the Forum, when several people are tinkering with similar models.
I thought this sprue-photo could tempt anyone who might see it.
I really like the way that Doug did the front-truck mounting on his Updah railtruck.
Hadn't seen that before, or maybe I have on a turntable or sumtink ?
The track pick-up wires go up the middle of a thin-hollow-tube, which is the truck-pivot.
