This thing is so low slug, betcha could adapt some Athern trucks under it, the nose, front platform and pilot would be the challenging part. Any takers? Mike Bauers <> wrote:

My reflections on the model made me conclude that building a mech around
the HobbyTown drive trucks would be the way to go. It gives you a very
low drive shaft for the geared trucks.

As to the proposed prototype, I've been told it would be very difficult
to keep those 10,000 tiny internal tubes open. Otherwise everything else
reads as quite possible.

Imagine what could be done using todays modeling standards and materials,
this would be a scratch builders paradise and stump the bejeezes out of
everyone. Watch out for a 1/87th scale environmental disaster if it were to
derail into our casting resin rivers!

Curious, does anyone know what became of the model? How serious a project
was this?
