You are right the mounties will never know, they won't find the animal either, and will still be trying to figure out how the 2 trees were cut down...put another belt on..keep the train moving we can feed them all this way...

Larry,
Yeah then it will look like any other hunter/poacher and you will blend right in...except for the moose with 20 holes in it.

Have fun!



Well I got an e-mail yesterday saying that my very own 'Gundola' kit is on its way (along with the other gondola kits I ordered) I says it's coming with full instructions but I'll probably throw them away anyway.

As for having "too much firepower", there is no such thing.

That reminds of an episode of Myth Busters about shooting fish in a barrel. While not really possible with a handgun, the 50 caliber machine gun they used at the end of the show not only obliterated the fish all that was left of the barrel was itty bitty pieces.

Go with the .50. You can single shot or snipe with the gun (M2).

We I was traveling out west in my twenties, I got to see a cow moose and her calf up close (20 meters away), man they are big, and I grew up around horses. I hear they taste good too and I know of a local butcher who carries moose, elk, etc ... mmm.

Thanks for the Sunday dinner idea guys.


Cheers, Heath.

Look what just showed up in the mail!

The boys at the TML are using geared power to pull the new kit into the car shop for assembly.

Ron,

As per usual I unwrapped the kit and threw out the bubble wrap and instruction sheet.
Here is the resin ready for a comet bath.



Since the parts in the box look nothing like this limited rum kit. I have my thinking cap on as to how to cut the parts up to look like the car in the picture.

Cool Larry,

I'm hoping I get mine next week so I'll have it before I leave for North bay. I'm thinking that we might have to make new sides or maybe kitbash two of the kits to get the right height. I'll have to see when I get my kits and see what you come up with.

The boys at the shops went right to work... gutting the kit, filing the resin and adding new parts.

Now the kit is starting to look like the picture.

Wow, Larry did a great job of not following the instructions ... that doesn't look anything like the gons that I ... can't say! And, Ron should have an even easier time not following instructions ... I packed his with extra Chinese take-out menus!

You don't "have to" make new sides ... you can just follow prototype practice and "build up" to the desired height. You have multiple cars coming -- the sides are made from interior panels and exterior panels -- you can make additional boards by mating some of the interior panels together. Those are thinner than the exterior panels -- so you might need an .005" or .010" shim between them to match the thickness. And, if you go that route, some friendly bandelero might be willing to replace the extra side pieces robbed from another car. Grandt makes some small NBW's ... IIRC correctly, #1 and #93 will be close in size to what's on the car (if you bolt on stake extensions).


Cheers,
