Its been a while since I have had an urge to model, but after a trip on our new metrolink tram from Oldham to Manchester I started thinking ............

Of course, never one to do things by halves, my chosen scale is 1:24 (G)

I dont plan to have complete internals as I need all the integral cross braces as I can get at this size.

If all goes to plan there will be limited details from seat level up, with everything below seat base hidden with a coat of matt black.

 

I couldn't find any plans but did get a pretty useful picture from google that I have blown up to match the tram Overall length and height I found on line.

The picture I am using is a pretty good representation having spent several hours trawling online pictures of the units.

 

I still have some sections I have know idea how to tackle but will as always make it up as I go along !!

Hi John, as always something interesting from you! This thing must be huge, but then you are used to that scale. Glad you've found the modelling interest again.

Huge is perhaps the correct definition , around 3' 6" both units connected !
