    Thanks all; on to the next HO kit to translate to O when I get some space on the bench.

    Truck frames are solid, not sprung, but do pivot on the bolsters (very easily, maybe too much!) so are equalized - pretty sure they are All-Nation trucks. Think I might have another set about for a another fun car....

    Martin,

    That's a very cool model. Something a little different.

    You did a very nice job.

    Martin,

    I had a closer look at those trucks. Do they flex to follow uneven track?

    BTW, nice looking model. Always love the models you do and the process to get a nice looking piece of equipment in the end.

    Okay, got it done.....painted and decaled.....for now........camera really bounced the lighting hard off the decal film - they look perfectly fine on the bench. Have to play with the camera or my photo set-up area......

    Hmmmmmm.............decals are just a wee bit............ancient, but not the oldest I've been faced with using,

    Have to put a good overspray on these while getting the car painted......bit of a bland color scheme; Pullman Green, Lark Dark Gray, Steam Black.......

    Only following the original Ambroid plans........
