Well ... It's a l o n g story ...
... but it all started when I was inspired by 'Canadian Kens' extra-wide depressed-centre flatcar !
Photo courtesy of 'Canadian Ken' !
Canadian Kens carshop, in a fiendishly ingenious plan, typical of small & resourceful narrow gauge railroads ...
... built this ultra-cool heavy-duty car, from 2x vintage 'Tri-ang Railways' R242 Trestrol Wagons !!
So what on earth has THAT got to do with BATTLE SPACE ! ... ?
Well ... The Tri-ang N.A.T.O and BATTLE SPACE ! R341 Searchlight Wagons, were built on top of regular R242 Trestrol Wagons ...
... or SO I THOUGHT !
Not quite the same in fact !!
The BATTLE SPACE ! items actually have 'extra bits' moulded onto the 'regular' Trestrol Wagon ...
... which were designed to mount the 'searchlight & generator' on.
So in the end, I have 2x Searchlight Wagons & 1x regular Trestrol Wagon.
Make sense so far ?
I just got a round tuit for the 'Canadian Ken' inspired depressed-centre flatcar bash !
So might have to wait on that one for a while . . .
But the 'searchlight & generator' parts, have already been pressed into service by the busy M.M.M shops.
So here's their story ...
... muddled up with tales of a BASHED Tri-ang R127 Crane, a modded vintage Airfix kit, old Meccano set parts, a Ford-T engine ...
... & possibly others . . .
All will become . . . As clear as MUD ! . . . In due course . . .
Stay tuned !!
