Yeah nice idea, take the fuel tank off the flat car and put a flak gun on it
or better still a tank being transported buy train would be nice as well.

I watched the video on it and it's kind of a neat train.In some ways it reminds of of the "G" scale size trains. (what i have seen in pictures--never seen one close up.)Thought the sound was pretty good and it's an RC train using a battery......Pretty cool... ;)

If I lived in a dryer part of the USA I would for sure have an outdoor train layout set up in "G" scale size.I have seen some pictures of these and they can be a neat looking part of a flower bed
and a little pond in addition with a bridge or two is a killer set up in amoung some shrubs.
