Unfortunate about the trucks, but you may have used 100 ton
trucks, which have a 5-10 wheelbase.
A 50 ton truck has a 5-6 wheelbase with 33" wheels.

I believe I am done with the fine
tuning of this 3D resin printed car. I spent yesterday
adding the final under frame details that I can make out
in the pictures. I know I missed a few things that are
obscured by shadow in the black and white photos.
The second picture shows the amount
of overhang of the wheel sets as I had to move them out to
gain some room for the trucks to pivot. That was the one
thing I had to change from the drawing in Terry Metcalfe's
book. The final weight with hardware means I will have to
add a little less than two ounces per car. I've been
patiently waiting for some Tamiya primer for 3 months now
and I regret I was not able to give this a coat to cut
down on the resin shine and let the details pop.
Now it's time to find a decal set
that will work for this car. Any suggestions?
