Nice work!

What about the trucks - do you want to use the HP's trucks?
And would the Gold Coast's ones be suitable? I like them very much...

For my part I'd go with the Gold Coast trucks, they're far superior - and much more accurate - in appearance than the HP trucks. And, even more importantly, probably a great deal easier to obtain!

Yeah, I suppose I should design it to work with a truck that's currently available :doh:

Done :dance:

It's now setup for the Gold Coast trucks and KD714 couplers.

Now we just need to figure how many I need to make. I'll probably do 20 for myself and maybe another 20 to sell on eBay.

Pricewise I'm thinking $15 each for 1-4 and $12 each if you want 5+. That's without trucks and couplers.

I'll take two.

Quick update, those are micro-trains couplers (1025?) but I can widen the pocket for the 714's. Looks like they both have nearly the same installed height. Just let me know which type you want.

And, I've never shipped anything internationally so bear with me while I figure out how to do it.

Also, just to be clear, these will be sold as unassembled kits. I'm going to see if I can make a little jig for puting them together. And I can include the grab irons if you don't feel comfortable making them. They're pretty easy though.

I setup a quicky ordering page here http://www.cabinetplanner.com/G31_Gondola.html This is to get you're order placed. Once they are ready to ship I'll send a PayPal invoice. Or, if you want to pay another way we can work that out later.
