I'm building a military train using 1/64 Armored vehicles. I haven't received the models yet, waiting from ebay.. I'm using 6 flyer flat cars with the old, non-weighted link couplers. I've changed most of them out to knuckle and weighted link couplers, depending on any problems I've had to deal with during any trial runs of the cars. Shown are the 6 flats.Each wheel was removed from the axles and polished. The axles showed quite a bit of rust so they're soaking in a glass of evapo-rust. After 24 hours they look good, but I'll let them soak another 24-48 hours, I'm in no hurry. I'll then chuck them up in my drill press and remove any other defects, and give them a polishing with some 2000 wet/dry paper. I have OD military paint that I'll spray the flat cars with, and also I plan on polishing the trucks and journals.
