Looks great! I just built an MT-4 just like this one...still trying to figure out the best way to mount the trucks! Any suggestions?
Thanks! I used Athearn trucks with the worm cover clip attached and with the gearing removed. I glued a cross brace with a pin in it that the Athearn clip could sit on and snap onto yet swivel freely.

Hope this helps.
I posted a photo of mine! Matching slugs! I bet they would look nice together. Thanks for the info on mounting the trucks. Would you be willilng to post a photo of the inside where the truck mounts? I will also be using Athearn trucks...just can't mount them.

Thanks and excellent job!!
