Hi Steven :wave:



The  Wolf appreciates your 'Horses Mouth' wisdom ! :P



We need to slap some 'Humbrol' on that sucker fer sure ...

... in the mean time, The Wolf is computin' INSANE kitBASHideas ! ;)



- - - - - - -


Just so as Jose ( maybe ) will still speak to me ... ;)

... the Trevithick engine kitBASHidea ... is a GOOD 'EN !





When I Posted the Trevithick pix. ...

... I had NO IDEA that a 1:38 scale funky-kit was available !


This placky-junk is HIGH on my wish-list ...

... thanks to Joses VISA-card BUSTIN' advice ! ;)


What can you do ?

Go with it, I guess ?


NICE !



- - - - - - -



Cuddly Ken ;) ...

... & his Canadian kitBASHing ideas ...

... well ... we came up with a CHEAPER ! :cool: economy Ford-T armoured-car option !





Back in the M.M.M.M.M.& M.Co. world ...

... Wolfy just thought about CRANES ! :Crazy:

Coming up   .   .   .



:moose:



Si.

Before moving onto the latest with the M.M.M.M.M.& M.Co. crane stuff ... :bg: ...

... I realized that I hadn't really said what interested me about Kens armoured-car idea ! L:

Or for that matter Joses kit of the 200 year old Trevithick contraption !! :Crazy:



I am on the look out for funky-junque generally. :pimp:

Some of whatever I come up with would be 'static', behind the shed kinda things.

Other stuff may be 'mobile' and could move around like wagons & vehicles.



Yet more I am considering as 'loads' for my flat cars. L:

In particular the railroads 'heavy duty' flatcar(s?) & depressed-centre flatcar.

Also how to actually load these cars, whether by crane or ramp ? ... or both !!





The new plate-frame trucks were a great improvement on this car, over the old pressed-steel originals. :cool:





Much lower to the rail as well.



:moose:

Hi Ken :wave: Eh!



Well ... I did gather a bit more stuff on the Ford Model-T 'budget' alternative to Kens ROLLS ROYCE ! ;)



Here we are Ken !

Just in case you're running short of kitBASHes to work on. :P

I know you're just gonna HAVE to have one of these in 1:48 for your layout. ;)





I think Jose would probably agree with me on this ... :old dude:

... I'd scrap the tires off your 1:48 model Ken & go for FLANGES on a armoured-railcar version for sure. :cool:

&

For us 1:35 hipsters ... the 1920s Polish Ford Tfc is available as an affordable kit by 'RPM'.

I've got absolutely NO IDEA what the battleship-grey thing is behind it ...





... so NO there's absolutely NO chance of kitBASHing one of those whatsoever ! ;)

If anyone reads Polish though, I am slightly intrigued as to what the red lettering says.

( or is that grey thing a Russian grey thing ? )



L:

Not a clue as to what the ugly grey thing could be, look's like something from the "League of Extraordinary Gentlemen".
Pretty certain I would not want to try and take it on with a Ford Tfc. Maybe with a Sherman Firefly with the 17 pounder gun.

I can pass on the 1/48th scale version, have a photo of a
Central American armoured paycar, which I may model.

Hi Ken :wave:



That sounds like it could be an interesting model. :thumb:


Is the 'paycar' a railroad car ?

Or is it an automobile or horse drawn ?

I'm guessing it's a railroad car, Eh!

Hi    Ken :wave:



Thanks for the unusual photo !





Looks like those bad boy Bandido bullets bounce off that iron-clad !! :mex: Eh! :f:



I hope your 5-pages are in a 'small notebook' Ken :P ...
... my 5-pages, I'm afraid, are 'FOOLscap' ... !



Oh dear ...

... all this extra strong iron & rivets ...

... has reminded me that I thought an EXPLOSIVES ! car might be needed for M.M.M.M.M.& M.Co. L:

A 'high-security' boxcar could be good as well. :mex:



:moose:



Si.



Had a look at the 'Tri-ang' catapult-launch car again this week.

I've given up any ideas of loading such monsters as SIXTYs or D7s on my wimpy 2' stuff.

So maybe the loading-ramp BASH could be limited to perhaps 6' to 7' wide ?

Mmm . . .



Thanks for the inspiration Ken.

I wouldn't REALLY want to start a war against insane :Crazy: kitBASHing ideas now ...

... would I ?


;)

Thought I'd Post a few other interesting pix. from the recent 'armoured diversion' research ... ;)
... before a bit of an overdue M.M.M.M.M.& M.Co. crane update. :moose:


Including a Guy who just couldn't resist making his own 1:1 version ! :shocked: :Salute:















:P
