- Hi everyone,
I just had a bit of a late night moment of inspiration. It may be
possible for me to come up with a "relatively" easy way to kit-bash a
mechanism for an F45, using MTL F7s as a starting point. That, coupled
with a RP shell and trucks, and I could have such a locomotive on the
tracks. If I were to push forward with such a thing, is there anyone
else who would be interested in buy RP shells and trucks from me, along
with instructions on kit-bashing the mechanism?

- Hi Corey,
RP is short for 'rapid prototyped'. I have various contacts in
industry that allow me to get short run, rapid prototyped parts for
relatively little money. I'm currently considering starting a business
on the side for, if you will, a 'production on demand' model railroad
company. I'll be able to produce special products. Here's the address
for my website at the moment:
Unfortunately, I don't have the equipment to produce chassis. I can
design them, but I cannot manufacture them.
