Hi Michael :wave:

I hope you don't mind.

I have re-Posted this here.

People can't easily follow your story, if stuff is Posted 'here & there'.

It's good to get it all in your Thread, so it is easy to find & follow.

It certainly confuses the hell outta me. ;)

ORIGINAL POST ... Michael M said :-

My Tri-ang TT scale tank car just showed up in the mail.
Kinda on the tiny side.
Only cost me about $5.00 including postage.

It measures about two inches long, or about six feet in 1/35 scale.
Thinking of turning it into an open-air passenger car.
I've got some of those Hornby spoked wheels on order which should look nice on this car.
Figured I would cut the frame and spread it wide enough to accept 16.5mm wheelsets.

With a bench seat at each end at about 18 inches deep would leave 3 feet in the middle.
Passengers would enter in the middle of the car.
With a width of 5 scale feet the car would hold 4 passengers.
Add some siding about 3 feet high, and a curved corrugated tin roof.

I'll install some couplers so that my planned rail bus (just as soon as I find some suitable RC componets.
Still thinking of that RC tank with two speeds; very slow and slow) could haul paying passenger around.

The tank itself could be put to other uses.
Maybe as a water container, or a fuel tank.

The shop foreman is not the kind of person to look a gift horse in the mouth.
Again, his motto is "as long as it works it doesn't have to look good."
