Can anyone recommend a suitable bogie for RhB freight use (ideally arnoldo couplers)?

I already have some kato bogies, but ideally looking for something that is a screw fitting. Initial need is for a  Fac.

THanks.

Is it for the shapeways Fac ? How big a hole does it have to have ? Would an American style bogie be ok ?

What's the diameter of the two round body bolster where the bogies get attached to ?

I was working on my version tonight, in prep for exhibiting in Birmingham this Saturday. The simplest way is American bogies with screws. The screw will self tap into the hole (should survive a while without breaking - I've fitted and refitted a few times and the lug hasn't worn through

If you can find reply number 55 in this  thread which shows the bogies I used.

Just started modelling the RhB with Kato products and I was wondering about freight wagons.

Some great ideas here....
