Ohio Public Service Interurban ( From OcCre's MZA - Costa ) Part II

Well, finally I get my model of car MZA OcCre Coast.
First of all, I have to comment that surprised me the weight of the box.
To be a coach, I found one more dead weight of a locomotive.
Well .... we see ....

After a search on the web, I found this supplier in the States, maybe is more affordable than to buy in the OcCre website, don't know. I have no idea of prices for the freight of a package of these characteristics from Spain to States 

About contents of kit.
As usual in OcCre kits, we see a couple of boxes of methacrylate with small metal parts, screws and all parts that are not wood.

I have found interesting at first glance, the bag with wheels.
The wheels are solid metal, covered with a patina of black color. They come with a small shaft included. Which gives us an idea of how it should be installed in the bogie.

Details of the tab. In most kits, scale 1:32 (gauge one) the flanges are usually very successful in their thickness. In this case, maybe they are a little larger than it should be in a ratio strictest scale.

After testing with different rail track profiles, I have come to the conclusion that these flanges are designed to run on a G track scale.
Whatever ... If we see that the result can be dramatically affected to the global ensemble, we can reduce these flanges just a little bit.

The remaining contents of the kit, is in good condition. Different types of wood just to give me an idea about the installation of this amendment .... I think I'm going to build an undecorated and unpaited version. 
On the other hand, I will study the possibility of changing some pieces of wood at the bottom (Chassis and bogies) for some parts in aluminum and brass.

For this project I will use these drawings that  I found on the web. These drawings are the work of A.E. Barker (12/05/62)
I have found these designs very clear and very interesting.

I made an enlargement X4

Another decisition... Peckham Trucks ? 
As you can see in the pictures at the first post, some cars are equiped with other kind of trucks. 

The oval window corresponding to the window of the toilet.
