Brian got my gears turning when he posted this:

This is the prototype I'll be using:


Basically, I think I'm going to use the body & the roof & make the rest myself. Out of the box, the LGB car looks like it rides a little high... anyone else concur, or is it just me?

Burl,
They do seem a little high and they are wide. Just swapping out the cheesy LGB trucks with Aristo rollerbearing will lower it some. I think this is the type car that Aristo is supposed to be releasing maybe later this year,or next year,or the year after that,or?

Burl,

Yes the cars do ride too high. Here's a picture I just took to illustrate out of the box vs. after lowering. They also mount the brakewheel one rib too high on the end.



Have fun!

P.S. ......Burl has the coolest kitchen table I've ever seen!

I don't know about the 'He man woman haters club' but it takes a real man to have this as his dining table.



Burl, where did you find this treasure? I want one!
Sorry for HiJacking this thread

By the way......your patterns look awesome!

Can anyone tell me if the roof is easy to remove on the LGB Railbox? Any chance someone could measure the length and width of the roof for? I've been looking for that style (does that pattern have a name?) roof for a kitbash project for some time now!

Thanks!
PD
