How about a tanker--carrying adult liquid refreshments?

I am VERY impressed with these trucks.
The thing I cannot understand is why someone isn't offering conversion kits or finished vehicles you could drive around an O scale layout. Most of all, I'd want a US 1930s delivery truck or a US Army Ambulance from WW2. Either would allow for all the 'guts' for such a conversion.
I'd pay top dollar for something like that, as I do NOT have the skills to make one myself.

There is plenty of r/c vehicles, but Giles work is very much that of the enthusiast, not the mass market.

I didn't express myself well.  Most R/C vehicles are constructed and sold to the toy market.  Giles work is one of an engineer/modeller who has had to construct something quite specific for his hobby.  Much like the way modellers construct scenery or build a loco or carriage.
R/C aircraft and boats in similar, though ready to run is more avaible, but not perhaps 1:43 scale.

Well, if Giles (or anyone else) wanted to custom-make one of these for my own layout, I'd be willing to discuss what is a fair value for the effort and the parts...
