What I was actually lookin' for as well, in the company car building files ...  ???
... was some snaps of the slightly longer 6-plank 4-wheelers under construction as well.  :old dude:




Instead of using one of my regular 'old-time trucks' for the chassis ...  :old dude:

... I made a couple of these, with 'Tri-ang' short-wheelbase diecast chassis ...

... hacksawed down the middle & then 'reversed' to get an even shorter-wheelbase ...  :cool:

... but a bit longer than the straight 'truck' I modded for the 5-plank 4-wheelers on the previous << Page.





What used to be the 2 'buffer ends' of the vintage 'Tri-ang' chassis, is now under the center beam.  L:

This snap was taken before swapping the plastic wheels out for new 'Hornby' 16.5mm gauge metal ones.

I was also checking out the mounting of the 'San Juan Car Co.' Evolution-Couplers when I snapped this.



More historical & possibly hysterical SD-card horseplay   l a t e r .  .   .    ;)

Some more 5 & 6 plank mayhem, from the  M.M.M.M.M.& M.Co.  dusty archives ...  :old dude:





My economy BASHed HO 'Tyco' TEXACO oil-tank, sits a bit uNeVeNLy on 5 & 6 planks of 2 different heights !  :shocked:


BOY ! ... Wolfys gotta watch those coupler heights don't go ALL TO HELL !  :f:

Meanwhile ... back at the ranch ...  :moose:





'Mobiloil' tank in blue, with its new 'styro-steel'(TM) end, epoxied into position & sanded down all round.  :thumb:

Originally prized off a 'Matchbox' Models Of Yesteryear 1:35 scale Ford-T tanker truck.

Mucho rivet drilling Amigo !  :mex: Just like The Safe, in 'For A Few Dollars $$$ More' !  :cb:



Plus of course an asymetricalized  ;)  'Tri-ang' Brit. OO milk tank ...

... 'D' for dairies in that case ... or 'D' for diesel in Wolfys world.  :P



More muddling around today, trying to organize a NEW workspace !  L:

L  a  t  e  r  .   .    .

" ... yet more uncompleted models "



Hi Ken  :wave:



It's a CRAZY CATCH that Catch-22 !  :shocked:



If you have a modeling workbench, you must be CRAZY !  :Crazy:

But you'd be CRAZY not to, with all that space for new models !  :P



I have been toying with the idea of lashing-up a 'staging-yard' with some 'Hornby' sectional track.  L:

More for display I suppose ... or as a 'real life' wagon-works yard for Wolfys creations.



Mmm ... I don't recon the HO/OO track does the models too many favours though ...  :f:

... but I'm reluctant to splash any more $$$ cash on 'Peco' Crazy Track, as I wanna build my own some day.  :mex:



I think the point is at the moment, to ENJOY the spare car building time I have available ...  :time:

... & not over stretch myself, trying to accumulate vast New York Central length trackage !  :P


Rome wasn't built in a day ...  :old dude:

... & the New York Central took a while too !  ;)



:moose: :dt:



Si.

Got somewhat organized :us: and hung a display case for a few of my items of rolling stock,
helped :glad: to clear a bit of room on my 4 work tables  :Crazy:.


Now need to put up a shelf or two for a few structures,

to give me more room for a couple of more projects, on the go!

Hi Ken  :wave:



OMG ! ... ORGANIZED ? ?  :shocked: :shocked: :shocked: :shocked: :shocked:

Take it easy mmaann, I don't want you finishing your 'Tanque Charuto' before I do !!  ;)



I came across quite a  C :cool: :cool: L  new tank to mess with recently as well !  :P

Not exactly a 'bargain', but OK for me, cos of the missing chassis ...





Quite nice RIVETS !  ;)  & metal-panels. 





Basically the current production 'Brit. Bachmann' OO-scale version ...

... of the priceless vintage 'Tri-ang' Brit. tank wagons I've been ruining for the Collectors Club !  (_!_)



Gonna have to loose the end frames & chassis me tinks ...  L:

... otherwise I'll just be seeing a 1:35n2 swingin' '60s Brit. tank wagon !  [whack]



:moose:

I would rust the frame and tank, very little lettering,
and spot it on a section of unused track, as per photo attached.

Projects on hold at the moment, eye ball problem's, slowly improving a day by day.
Been working on a coupe of 1 to 1 scale projects for my daughter.

Hi Ken  :wave:



Oh she likes rusty, weathered & riveted together stuff then ?  ;)

Mmm.  L:

I haven't seen what your boxcar french-polishing skills are like yet Ken.  :)



N  I  C  E  !   rusty ol' weathered, riveted tank car ^^ photo !!  :thumb:





I keep pickin' 'em up & puttin' 'em down ... The oDd rivet or tWo added here & there.  :P

Had a bit of a quick look-see at my 'Tri-ang' Trestrol BASH.  L:



I've cut a NEW longer 'corner-notched' check-plate piece for the depressed-center ...  :!:

... & just cut a pair of end-platforms, in a different styleee tread-plate styrene. 





Now I gotta figure out how to fill the ends & do the 'Evolution' ^^ coupler mountings.  :dt:





I'll see if I can get a couple of snaps of the mods. done to my R562 'Catapult Launch Car' girders as well !!  :shocked:

( FREE 'Trestrol' with every swingin' '60s 'Tri-ang' catapult ramp ! )  :bg:  :Salute:





Still working on the kitchen table !  :cool: :P :f: :) :mex:

Hmmm... very mysterious.

Is it a crane, is it a bridge?

What will this thing become?
