Well that just goes to show what can happen to a design exercise. It can take on a life of it's own.

The initial batch has now been sold, but not to worry, there are more on the way in about a couple of weeks.

If I have replied to you with payment instructions, your order will be posted tomorrow or the day after depending on how busy my wife keeps me.

If anyone else want one, PM me and I will get back to you.

I did look at that briefly before deciding to wait and see if Bachmann downscaled theirs.

I think the answer is probably to model an MPV loaded with stuff (like the RHTT setup) where you've got some big blocks that are sufficient to hide the Kato bogie tram chassis in (especially as its easy to saw in half and put one half with the motor one end, and the other half where needed.

Sometimes it is not worth getting a 3D print done. This is so fine that it falls apart when you look at it.



Don't know if I am getting clumsy, but I can't build it up. It is a kit of parts based on manufacturer drawings.

I downloaded quite a lot of pics of the SGT off the internet.

If anyone is interested I'll post them somewhere and start a resource thread of reference pics somewhere.

I think there are a number of threads with the letter of the alphabet. Start a resourse in 'S' and give us all a heads up.

I have started painting my Optical car, but rain stopped play, so I am back to some design work instead.

Due to copy right reasons - the pics I had found cannot be reposted here - but there are quite a few on the internet for anyone to find.

Sorry folks
