Styrene parts for container cars

1188 Views 1 Reply 2 Participants Last post by  Cuhail
I was looking to add some parts and pieces to my winter project of making container cars, looking through the Plastruct cataloge they had pieces that were 1:32 or 1:24, wich one do you think would match closer to a USA container car I bought for a model, which I think is 1:29.

thanks for the help!!!

I can't believe no-one has replied yet...intriguing...

Anywhose, I'd go with 1/32 first. I use 1/32 with 1/29 myself and find it's unremarkably close enough to not scream "Out of scale".

Ya need to get yourself a scale ruler for 1/29 and go nuts with a stack of plastic and a hobby knife. Scratchbuilding isn't as daunting as you think. And, once you start down the dark path, forever will it consume you!

Hope I helped,
