Me, complain! Never! Observe or comment maybe, but complain isn't in my vocabulary! :old dude:

Whilst I'm on and going back a few pages, that Hiroboy chain kit makes chain with a 1.5mm, 0.06" pitch so about half the size of the plastic ones. The only reason for mentioning it is that I'm in the slow process of building a lumber carrier and they were chain driven from a tractor power unit so I had to look out the remnants to check for suitability. :bg:

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 ! :cool:




Photo courtesy of 'Canadian Ken' ! :thumb:


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 !! :shocked:





So what on earth has THAT got to do with BATTLE SPACE ! ... ? L:


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 ! :P


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  .  .  .  :slow:


But the 'searchlight & generator' parts, have already been pressed into service by the busy M.M.M shops. :mex:



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 !!



:moose:



Si.
