Intermountain 3bay ACF kits
« on: February 17, 2019, 03:23:01 PM »
Bought two of these intermountain kits last year as a bargain with the intent of using them as a test for a new style of weathering I've seen done on YouTube! For a change I've had an hour or so today -so up to the bench -out with the gear -off with the lids !!

OMG you need a magnifier to see some of the bits -let alone glue them on !!
Mainly plastic kit but with an etched metal walkway on the roof -kit includes bogies /wheels and some dodgy looking coupling -more later on them . After a lot of swearing and chasing bits across my bench I've ended up with this one to start.

I'm pleased with the outcome -but not the bogie /coupling combo -tried them on my test track -they seemed stiff and kept derailing the car on corners -so out with the conversion box and notes ----microtrains say 1000 bogies with short couplings -only one problem --

EMPTY AGAIN !!! Will order some Monday  -but I robbed some off another conversion to try -and yay -bliss -smooth running -no uncoupling !!

Will rewatch the video on You tube and have a go with it -will post the results !

Remember -this is not a practice !! You don't get another go at it
And I was Born ready .
