Its well with my soul!!!!
started another cheap project.
 I also always set my coupler hiegth withKadee G scale ones.
 most 1:1 are 33 to 34" tall so 1 1/8" off the rail



I have no HO scale model to go by so I used somephotos. these cars have the sizes on them so you can guestimate whats needed.






few more details and it will be ready for paint.

I may make a 3 pack to haul trailors on.

$60 per sheet still isn't bad when you brake it down per ft and realize how many cars you can get out of one.

The first one is done, the side braces still look alittle too thick on the sides.
this is an Aristo 53' trailor in it.

 I know that you can't have a layout, but you sure do have room and time to scratchbuild.
get started on a simple gon car. Buy some styrene and use some of the trucks off other rolling stock.
 e-mail me if you need help.
 Then bring it in Sept to share with others...

 not sure, tonight I need to find the top of the work bench... it got lost or covered.

I also need to find someone who has some 29100 trucks for sale at a reasonable price or for trade. Before any more cars are built.
