@Si
what has become of that little backwoods railroad you started with? Obviously a secret testing ground for all sorts of anti-aircraft weaponry plus arcane almost-British jet planes....my personal conspiracy advisor says that plane in question was flown to the UK after they had tried maple syrup in place of kerosene!

" CF 202 disappeared within 2 days of the start of dismantling with no trace what so ever,

One other report states there is a prototype (202?) hidden in a barn in Quebec.

The Truth is out There !!! "



You could be right Ken ... but will we ever know ?

Don't worry Helmut.

I'll be back to whittling '30s dry-rot out of toffee apple sticks before too long.

The Mysterious Moose Mountain BATTLE SPACE ! phase, can't go on for ever ...

... or can it ?



:time:

   First up, my first Trestrol conversion, based on a 2Ft 6In gauge car built for the FCA(B)&C to haul equipment from the coast to a Copper mine and smelter. split two cars length wise and inserted a spacer between the two center frames. Width was 1.75 IN, should have made it 2In wide.
 Load is a recycled water filter, representing a Bruckner batch rotating furnace circa 1900.

Hi Ken :wave:


Thanks for the photos ... Very nice converting !

The car & load look excellent.


I like the loading ramp bash, from the plane catapult car as well.

That's a very rare BATTLE SPACE ! item you hacked to pieces there Ken !!


My 2 searchlight Trestrols both have 'extra bits' moulded in to them, for fixing the generator & cabin etc.

A nightmare to cut out & even then, you would not have the nice diagonal-braces there afterwards.

I may have to surface a possible conversion with tread plate.


I would like to transport a Caterpillar D7 or Russian ChTZ S-65 tractor.

They are about 70mm wide in 1:35

I'm not sure if a 'real' 2-footer could even move a Cat. like this ?


70mm is exactly 8' in 1:35 scale, sounds like that is how wide your prototype was.

I guess your crawlers are a similar width, ie. around 8' or perhaps wider ?


I tried a basic Trestrol with regular Tri-ang archbars to see how 4-wheel trucks might look as well.

The Trestrol actually looked pretty cool with 4-wheel Tri-ang diecast passenger trucks fitted.


Mmm ... A tricky one for me.

It looks really BIG ! compared to my other cars ... But that's the whole point I guess.


:moose:


Si.
