I have started working on my AOOX, AKJY and ABFX wagons and realised what a huge project it will be. I have been going over them and see what I can improve and modify to make them my own.
Firstly the ABFX Vans. I have sat them on AR Kits bogies as I do with most of my rollingstock and come to the conclusion that they sit too low. So the best fix I have found is to sit washers in the raise the height. I found that Kadee Red Washers give about the best height. I had to ream out the centre of the washers a little to make them fit. Also the couplers are a little bit too far in. This is not a problem that you would usually have. It become evident when you sit two ABFX's together and study photographs of them for real. I drilled new holes for the Coupler Box screws too move the box out by 1mm. The holes are very close together and nearly overlap. I also lowered the coupler box by 15 thou. using styrene.
