" Damn nice weathering job you did on the riveting kit "

Howdy Woodie :cb:

Thanks !
I thought about cutting up the case & turning it into ore-cars.
But I'll leave running a load of rusty ol' heaps, to the Silver City line.
It's all 100% WELDED and toootaly mooodern here these days.
John's right ... Riveting ... is ... just ... so ... yesterday ... !

;)

" I have searched through my workshop drawers ...
... I intended checking the dimensions of an O gauge shoe "

Good evening Michael :wave:

Too late I'm afraid.
It's past midnight.
Wolfys new girlfriend, Barbie, just turned into a pumpkin !


" Roll on the big night ! "

I sent Michael a PM, to see how his first night at the pub went, after getting out of Hospital.
Haven't heard back yet though.
Mmm ... ?
Musta bin a blinder ! ... He's probably back in the A&E again !

:shocked:

- - - - - - -

Like I said, I forgot to get a snap of the vintage Tri-ang tankcar, before I ruined it !
Found this one on 'nternet though.

A slightly later model than my pre Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band era version.
This one has the post Woodstock pin-point placky arch-bars, not the dudey diecasts Hank Hatchet insists on.
But the underframe and 100% WELDED tank, are the same parts.



Can't remember what I paid for my one.
It was however in line with the usual M.M.M budget guide lines !

Couldn't BELIEVE IT !!
Looking for the photo, I saw one of these, sans 'collectors' box, with a smear of weathering on it.
Went for 30 QUID !! :Crazy:

I actually feel quite bad about destroying all these highly 'collectable' vintage Tri-ang items, to make M.M.Ms rundown rolling stock.
Maybe I should quit M.M.M, and just 'collect' the Tri-ang instead ?
Naw ... life's too short, not to have as much fun as you can, with a good Tri-ang BASHING !

Better not double-cross Herb though.
He's got all my 'details'.
He could pass them on to the Tri-ang 'Collectors Club'.
Could be looking over my shoulder for ASSASSINS for the rest of my natural born !!

:w:

Si.

On the plus side you made the rest of the survivors more valuable...

Having also bashed my fair share of Tri-ang rolling stock,
for my On30 Rly, I make sure I do not let the Tri-ang Collectors Club know were I live. <G>.

Will have to see about getting one of the tankcar's, looks interesting for a conversion. I do have one of the smaller tankcar's, still thinking of what to do with it.

Hi Ken,
How about a sulphuric acid tanker? Complete with 'NOT TO BE LOOSE SHUNTED" or Canadian equivalent warnings.

Or you could go the other way - "DRINKING WATER ONLY" for isolated camps up the line?

John

Went through my photos taken in Peru (2000) came across
two likely car's
SULFATO DE ZINC PELIGRO CORROSIVO
Used to transport Zinc Sulfate from the smelter to another plant for treatment.

AGUA POTABLE
Spotted at small villages to supply potable water to the village people.

Have two other tank cars on the work bench, so will likely finish them off first, before I work on the Tri-ang.
conversion. One from Peru, the other from Brazil, neither
of which much looks like a tank car that we take for granted.

" On the plus side you made the rest of the survivors more valuable..."

Thanks Jose

Trust the pipopak research dept to think 'outside the box' !
I slept better last night knowing that I have made Tri-ang 'collectors' stashes worth more !
Perhaps their Godfather won't order 'a hit' on me after all ? :w:

- - - - - - -

I checked out the general ideas for the new tankcar underframe, with some spare Plastruct sections.



I got a few different sizes recently.
For light, medium & heavy-duty use.

The Airfix crane bash will have the heaviest underframe.
The light section supports the tank here.
The medium section is the main underframe beams.

I'm trying to make all my cars look slightly different from one another.
The difference in the Plastruct sections might seem small.
But I think when finished will be really noticable.

More later...

:moose:

Plastruct sections cut to length, after a good eyeing up.
Our 'tight wad' budget here at M.M.M, means Pops childhood advice ...
... " Think twice, cut ONCE " :old dude: always comes to mind !!


Mighta just shot myself in the foot & used the Plastruct for the Airfix crane BASH though. :f:

San Juan Car Co. Evolution coupler-mounting could be a challenge on this one.
Oh well ... ONWARDS ... FORWARDS ... FURTHER ... !
We'll worry about that  l a t e r . . .



In the background.
The Gilpin Tram caboose underframe, made using a similar DIY slot-cut mounting-board jig.
