    These trains are so cool. They remind of of the German and Polish ones in WWI and WWII. The only problem with these tanks is that guys on horses, towing artillery and a couple of tanks, can knock them out of commission, as well as a well placed bomb on the track itself. The photo of the destroyed German armored train, was taken out by artillery and light tanks. They worked best against civilians and unarmed cities and the like. They also worked really well in dispersing flak, especially the ones built on purpose built tracks defending certain essential factories. An 88 mm Flak train would ruin anyone's day.

    Your model is fantastic. I really think they are cool looking. Do the wheels turn? :)

    unfortunately the wheels on this one do not turn, it is a static model, but while building it, I saw how i could easily change it to rolling wheels, and plan on it if I build a textured one.

    This is very cool, I've often wonder why in 40K there haven't been more non-conventional applications of dreadnoughts such as a quad-walker chassis or similar to the rail-variant, a Predator equipped with a 'torso' in lieu of a standard turret.

    I am certain that this has been asked before (and if so, yes I know, I am thick at times), What scale is the train model and could it be used on a regular model train layout (like HO, N, or any other gauge)?

    I don't know what the original scale of the pdf is, but I print 4 pages per sheet on 8.5" X 11" cardstock. Nearest scale i can figure out is between 1/64th and 1/80th But I could be way off, not too sure.

    As far as a train set, it looks really close to ho scale. Id have to get a section and see if it fits

    If it can be used on a regular train layout, it would make for a very interesting set-up. You would have to change the cuopling system to make it work though.
    (I just hope that all of the train guys that are here do not get too bend out of shape for me saying that. sign1)

    Gunwagon finished, and it's starting to actually look like a train. Im going to reprint and kitbash the gunwagon to build a flatcar for hauling.....give them something to protect (so to speak) but for now im gonna take a break, a buddy wants a Thunderhawk, and i just looked at the parts, it's gonna take awhile, lol.....anyway, enjoy the Armor train for now, see ya in a few :)

    As always, you have done an OUSTANDING job on this train. Everything looks so clean and straight.

    I always enjoy viewing your build threads.

    Are you going to post the build of the Thunderhawk as well?
