What I don't get is why someone doesn't think to offer converted vehicles in popular scales
(O and HO for example, as I doubt you'd be able to do this in N)
that are drivable like this.
I don't have the technical skills to do that work myself but I sure would buy a vehicle in O scale
(assuming it fit in my layout's concept)
and would be willing to pay a few extra bucks for something that works well, out of the box.
