    Going to 2 axle trucks will require relocation further outboard, so I need to work on that as well as paint the roof. A good sharp blad in the chop saw or table saw results in such a clean and accurate cut that painting the body is optional.

    The green one has been cut down too far to be appropriate for posting in HO, so you will have to look elsewhere to follow it's progress. Unfortunately, the roof was a flexy (gummy) yet breakable material, and after the miter blade kissed it, it became no longer of the world. So I have quite a project to scratch build one.

    the fifth and sith ones look like MDC Overland cars (coach and observation/diner respectively) assuming they are about 50ft long, number seven looks like an Overton combine, the eigth looks like an Overton coach
