Coupla coupling device

I have invented the worlds first tool to couple MT and rapido couplers without any work ( yes it needs weathering )

Seems to me it would have been easier to change the rapido coupler to a microscale one.....

It would certainly look better... but beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

I think the link and pin coupler predates it by a century and a half or so. Still, maybe it's the first operating N-scale link and pin coupler.
