I've ordered a set of the Wlather's HO passenger trucks, but while I'm waiting for those to arrive I'm going to move on with finishing the car body.

Made some more progress on the shorty coach this morning. Fancy two-tone green paint job. This should look nice with the gold decals.



The tarpaper roofing is gaffer's tape. If you've never used gaffer's tape, I'll tell you what a production assistant once told me: "Gaffer's tape is what duct tape wants to be when it grows up."

Dave, glad to see you're really sticking to this project and it'll really be rolling when the new trucks arrive. (The paint looks good too)

Dave, this has probably been asked and answered, but I'm too old to search for it! What is your camera set-up for those great macro shots of your work?

Awesome Dave. I plan on eventually shortening my coaches too. I am so happy to see yours look so good. Great tip on the roof. Bob.

Dave: My apologies if you feel I am honing in on your thread. But, I thought some of the commenters would benefit from another "how to do" on shorty cars. I figure between your eventual description / drawings /photos/animation :0), and my quick sketches done some years ago when others asked over on my thread, these would help move people though the process. My cut down is a little longer and allowed for the same trucks to be used. Scott
