Re: Underbody detailing


My concern with gons and flats is weight. Clear creek / Durango Press cars w/sandwich weight, no problem. Scratch built flats and gons start with a .020 deck.Then they get side sills and end beams. Bolsters and couplers to get proper height. Next brass 3/4 x .090 or .065 between the bolsters. Brake cylinders on top of strips of Evergreen representing center and intermediate sills on top of brass of an appropriate height. Brake levers if space allows but not manditory.
