I am currently building this model. All went fine until I fitted the bogies. These are far too deep, meaning the car sits much too high. I have read and re-read the instructions, and am sure I'm following correctly. Anyone else encountered this?
Looking at photos of cable cars, I think your model looks just about right regarding height. The bottom of the body appears to be just below the crotch level of a person standing next to the front, or about 27-28 inches, and the pilot sheet (?) also looks about right. Once you get the hanging steps on the sides (and perhaps the lower side sheeting), it will probably look okay.
