    Indeed they do--there are a lot more types of engines out there than model companies willing to make them, so a lot of folks make specialty bodies to drop onto other companies' chassis. Heck, I could have used that laser-cut cab kit for an HOn30 project I'm working on now...

    That is very smart to do, i never thought of it, for me i do like engines that arnt made as a a model but thats great that you can just buy the shell and there you go.thats an awsome idea. :thumb: :thumb: :thumb:

    A 44-tonner in N scale is pretty tiny indeed--the HO model isn't that big!

    I'd like to see N scale GE 44-ton diesels available.
