John Heathman (JohnH) of the Atlas board may have some truck sideframes that would work for you.

I kinda like the weird-looking Japanese trucks :-) I found a tank here for an Atlas RS-1, so I'll hack it up and put it underneath. It will probably get painted a darker gray than the primer in the photo. I primed it to make it easier to see the seams so I can remove them, but then I couldn't wait so I just slapped on some of my decals and let 'er rip. :D With a little work, I think I can make a nice model of this.

I like it a lot. Mostly cosmetic changes might improve looks, but it's good enuf for me. Kind of reminds me of my 1976 American Motors Pacer I had - hope your Boxcab lasts longer than my Pacer. Just cute as a bug's ear.

Thats unique. Looks like something you'd see in narrow gauge.

Nice work! Question - Did you have to cut in the cab windows on the front end or did the Bachmann combine come that way?

Hey Bikerraypa...

What did you use to get rid of the seams made by the cut? My Steasel could use a little of that...

That's how they came. The Bachmann was a very easy platform to start from.

Plain old Squadron Putty works just fine. :l
