Hartford Large Scale Products Thielson trucks
A kit to build 1:20.3 scale trucks for D&RGW
February 18, 2011
Hartford’s kit is all-metal, with castings made of a high-strength material called “Duracast II.” Metal wheelsets with properly tapered and filleted profiles, plus brass for the hangar rods, are included. The detail of the castings is very crisp and the raised lettering for “D&RGW” in the transom ends is quite a nice touch.
