    Default My latest N Scale tank trucks

    I did not find a thread regarding N Scale vehicle so I put these pictures here. Both of these are made with 3D printed cab/chassis/wheels plus bashed Con-Cor Route 66 tanks. The photos have brought out a couple of things to tweak, so I shall. Now that I have finally completed these I can move on to my next two bash jobs being one SP AC-9 and One SP GS-1 from Bachmann locos.

    As always any & all suggestions are welcome...............

    Hi Carlso,

    Thanks for sharing your wonderful work.

    Did you design the semi cabs yourself?
    Happy Modeling

    Thanks for the likes and comments, greatly appreciated.

    Bruce - No I did not design the cabs, I am not smart enough (?) but why bother when I can get pretty good ones from various suppliers. I failed to mention that I developed and printed all of the decals seen on these two trucks plus some for an upcoming Chevron tanker build. They are both sprayed with Krylon rattle cans with some detail parts brushed with Molotow liquid chrome. I wish there was a good reliable, available supply of detail parts, for trucks and all vehicles. Not a very profitable venture I suppose.

    Mark - thanks, a comment from an exceptional modeler such as you is very much appreciated.

    We should all use our senses, stay safe, and stay well,
