Hi folks,
I'm about to start working on a Life Like 10 000k tank car kit that was obviously inspired by the following photo from Ian Cranstone's site

Now, to my eye the prototype seems to rest on a type 11 frame (correct me if I'm wrong) and not on the type 21 frame that Life Like provided. My question is what do I need to keep in mind when making alterations. Can I back date a type 21 frame to a type 11?

BMMX 1804 was built by AC&F at Berwick as part of lot 8719 in 12/1919 for the Transit Company Ltd. as a TCLX 800-899 series car. This photograph was taken at Sarnia, Ontario in July 1927, probably just after the car had been renumbered from TCLX 866 (Sarnia was the home to the Imperial Oil/Transit Company Ltd.'s car shops).  By 1955 the car had been returned to its original number, and by 1960 had been renumbered UTLX 26354.
