I'm wondering if anyone here has one or has ever seen a Precision Scale G scale tank car. They are supposedly 1:24 (1/2 scale)
Does anyone have dimensions on these cars?
For our 1:22.5 scale layout, I'm currently using the Bachmann Big Haulers tank cars. Nice, but not exactly prototypical for a frameless narrow gauge tank car.
I thought about converting our Bachmann tank cars to frameless tank cars, but I just can't figure out a way to do it that doesn't require basically scratch building an entire tank car from the ground up. Also the Bachmann tank top filler would require lots of body work to get it to look and operate correctly.
So I'm wondering if the Precision Scale tanks might work on our 1:22.5 scale layout. Being 1:24 they might look OK. At least I know they will be smaller then giant 1:20.3 rolling stock. Could be pricey though as they are bras models. And likely hard to find them anymore. I'd probably want the version painted in "Gramps" lettering.
But it would be nice to have accurate looking tank cars to go along with our oil dock:
