    Here's my first HON3 kitbashing project. I did these MDC Overland cars in 1982 when I first got interested in HON3. They were done per Malcome Furlow's HON3 book but I did add "tarpaper" to the car roofs.

    You made a superb job of those puppies!
    I read an article on that but no details of where or how to chop them into HOn3, so my cars are waiting for your instructions !!!!!

    I only have one passenger car in HOn3 and that is an E&B Valley kit (gotta be at least 18 yrs old) still waiting for me to assemble it.
    It looks so delicate, I'm scared at starting on it. Besides, I like the shorter cars by MDC, they look more in keeping with oldtime narrow gauge.

    When can I expect some info from you? ... PLEEEEEEEEEESE

    How about scanning the MDC drawings and mark lines where I should do the surgery? Also, I have HOn3 Grandt Line trucks I'd like to use on them, is there anything I should know about mounting them?

    hehehe, I'm not finished with you yet!! :D
    I never ever had success with proper decals or dry transfer decals. I need you're advice on applying those as well! :cool:

    Ok, That's it for now, your homework for a few days!:D :D
    I'll keep bugging you till you come up with the gen :D :D

    BTW, Dr. V, What kinda trucks did you use? Are there passenger trucks available for HOn3, or do you have to use freight trucks or modify HO trucks?

    I'm still feelin' a little woosey...

    Jon--- They're MDC HON3 passenger trucks. Don't know if they still make them. Haven't seen any in awhile. Grandt Line has execellent HON3 passenger/freight trucks as well as several others. Check the Walthers catalog.
