Is that good or bad??

Oh very good as far as I am concerned, I like paint that stays where you put it, maybe not so good though if you #### it up and need to remove it

Ah ok. I figured your statement meant "it sticks like Haggis". Which could be a good or bad thing depending on the interpretation :lol:

I'm looking for a color to paint the trucks. Black is the generic choice but they tend to be more metallic in real life. Can someone who knows paint recommend a more appropriate color please?

I'd suggest Grimy Black, with others for highlighting and weathering... the metallicness doesn't show after a few weeks in service.

and maybe some grey weathering if it's a car in cenment service.
Normally when I paint black plastic trucks I start with a light coat of rust or brown trying to get a faded dirty grey look. For these white trucks I plan to start with grimy black then add some rust or other highlights depending on how the black comes out...dave

Alex what was your original design spec for attaching the trucks to the cars, not that it matters but I would prefer to build them as per your ideas.

I use 6mm long size 0-80 bolts which I get from my local hardware store. 5mm long versions also work. I started adding washers between the head of the bolt and the bottom of the truck. This limits any potential side to side leaning (on tight radius turns specifically).

The extra bolts that come with MicroTrains N scale couplers also work.....dave
