After a few months of drawing and discussions over a few beers with my production man I finally have a laser cut Alloy and stainless steel 1/29th bathtub gondola.

Sure its heavy (mostly the USA intermodal trucks) but this baby wont degrade in UV. What you see here is a flat pack kit and is held togther by slots and screw fixings. I am happy to say that apart fom one minor error (see tape on top containment ring) it all went together as planned.

I believe this to be the only bathtub model about in 1/29th. I get the minor amendments done to the drawing then hopefully I can get a nice rake together.

Ah, hmmm mebbe, I thought the was the list price for one, with a choice of raod numbers and names. What you suggest would make more sense. If I was n't so bone idle I could mail tham and ask them. Trouble is, building g scale stuff is nt my day job and I have no urgency attached :)
