Re: Question for cane bin modellers!

Dear Ron, Brad,

So 8 tonners are basically 2 X 4 tonners on a common frame, still on
single axles?

I hope the axle bearings were upgraded to take the extra weight.

Why not bogies under such "double length cars"?
(I know I'm partial to bogie vehicles, rather than 4 wheelers).

Brad, looks like "weathered galvanisd steel" is your best color
choice ;-)

Happy Modelling,
and Researching,
Aim to Improve,
Prof Klyzlr

I've just posted pictures of modern 4 tonne and 8 tonne varieties,
photographed in FNQ (South Johnstone?) in 2003. These are in Photo
Ron's Bits & Pieces'

Subject: [LRRSA] Question for cane bin modellers!

What colours are most appropriate for painting
cane bins? Have a few here to be done on the weekend
but not sure what to use.

Any help appreciated.
