Art & Detail 70 tons roller bearing trucks

Post by j p » Wed Mar 19, 2014 10:33 am

The trucks are injection moulded, they have high level of detail, including the brakes and bearing covers.
The bearing covers turn with the wheel - as on a real car.
I ordered them with RP25 wheels.

I have made a video with SW1200 and a covered hopper equipped with the new trucks, but I need some help with that. It needs to be rotated 90 degrees and then placed on youtube. Who can help?

Here are some pictures:
This is what you get:

The bearing covers nicely fit onto the axles, there is a corresponding hole on the back side of them. I used some C-A glue anyway.
I painted the bolts white as seen on some real cars. This way their movement is visible even for me.

I can do that if you still need it.

Thanks Rob
It still does not show the detail of the bearing covers moving. So, people have to trust me for now. :lol:
I have noticed that the first pictures were too dark. They are fixed now.

I've seen them first hand, and the movement of the bearing covers is pretty obvious when you watch the train, even with the bolts unpainted. These are very nice looking trucks.

The old brass trucks were made by Ingo (Waggonbau Schwaetzer), member of the german TT-USA SIG.

That is much better than my video.
The first axle on the yellow car is stuck :doh:
