    Are you going to leave this one as a tanker Ralph or is it going to get the Dremel treatment :facepalm:

    Just needs a sound decoder and R/C :avatar:, once you've sorted that I'll send mine down for the conversion :giggle:

    Simple but very effective.

    That loos great Ralph. I'd love to do some of mine at some point.
    But I have such a long list of other jobs to do that lighting vehicles will just have to wait.
    Cheers Steve

    Yep, that does look good Ralph, well done. :thumbs: I'll send you my trucks ! ;);) Have you considered doing a motorcycle ?? :scratchchin:

    Cheers, Gary.

    ps. Whilst at Thornleigh, the N gauge layout Back of Beyond had a school bus that had indicators fitted ! What some modellers do really astounds me. :faint:
