It isn't the case that the Tichy (ex-Gould) model has no known
prototype; we know that the prototype was the proposed USRA tank
car. The problem is that no USRA tank cars were ever built. You
can, of course, letter the Tichy model to represent any prototype
you like, or - even better - to represent a car that never existed;
many modelers have done so. But I have it on good authority that, if
you do, sooner or later the Prototype Police will be knocking at your
door in the middle of the night with a warrant. And if you think
Mike Brock's jail is a scruffy place, well....
Question if I may?

Can the Tichy car be used as the basis for conversion of other tank cars. For instance the chassis can be used on something else to make it better, or the tank can be put on another chassis to represent another type of tank care etc?

Ashley,

Yes, this has been discussed here many times. The tank can be used with a type 27 frame (IM) to build the WWII USGA tanks. The frame can be used to model a series of NATX tanks (for which Speedwitch did a kit, iirc)
