HO 1/87 Dry Bulk Trailer 11 - Heil 1040 Superjet
jlwills42 What is your opinion of Black Hi-Def Acrylate ? I see it being pushed by some developers. Also, I'd love to see an accurate rendition of a 1/87 scale Canadian deHaviland Beaver bush plane on floats- for a water scene I'm thinking of. regards JWills
jlwills42 I received a copy of this item about a month ago. It looks like it requires quite a bit of sanding. Has anyone used a low-powered grit-blaster (available thru Micro Mark I think) to smooth down the finish? just asking. This is a nice copy of the prototype. JonW.

ATF-Wheelset
jlwills42 It looks like this set will fit my Kibri LTM 1100 5 axle. Does it provide steering as well? JonW

jlwills42 No- Strictly static. I'm not thinking of "toys", but display pieces. At present I am buying brass assys made by CCM, at considerable price, but they are appropriate only for the Kibri 934. The Herpa models are fine -except for the track assys which look undersize, at least according to photos of their prototypes I have seen. The "rubber band" approach used by the manufacturers -in my humble opinion- cheapen the look of the final model. I have tried the individual links by another supplier, but they do not fit over the wheels of the side-frames, and are devilishly difficult to handle. I'm thinking of a one-piece unified "casting" of just the tracks themselves or of the entire sideframes. Thanks for your consideration jonw
jlwills42 I'm intrigued by your stand-alone 14t undercarriage assy. I do a lot of work w/ Kibri & Herpa excavators. Would it be poss. to do just the track assy for these models, to replace the stock rubber parts? eg the Kibri 934 & 974, Herpa 954, or even a complete version of the Norscot D5? Just curious, as the "rubber band" tracks on these products really disappoint me. Jon W
