So i bought three 1:87 cars and this is what one looks like sized up on a GP-20 on B-Man EZ track.


This is a project i did today. I used a lighter and broke just the corner piece off. The lighter made great soot markes and the just did enought damage to look good. Bad part is that i forgot to take the frame off and caused some meltting that i didnt want, but hey i think the fire was hot enough melt some things ;)

Great looking vehicles. I might get some of those and try to find a way to 'neutralize' them, i.e., make them look more like normal cars.

Do you have an area on your layout where you can stage a scene of that 'crashed' tanker?

sorry bro no area for it yet. i also heard that your switching era or something like that. if you do plan on that hit me up i might want some csx stuff.

The era-change idea happened because I was homesick for the fun I had during my B&O modeling days. It's not gonna happen after all. That's why I posted the question on here, to get some 2nd opinions from people who have both feet on the ground :D
