I'm contemplating starting a project using an Atlas RS32 (I haven't bought it yet). As far as I'm aware it has only been available as a 'Trainman' series model, and as such has very basic detailing (but that's why it's fun to use and detail).
One big 'let down' is the rather flat fuel tank with the half casted air cylinder molded on. In reality, the fuel tank has a recess on it on both sides, where this cylinder is mounted in. Is anyone aware of a fuel tank detail part that can be used to replace the stock Atlas with?
The Atlas RS32 frame is born of their RS3 chassis. The earlier RS11s used the incorrect length RS3 frame for years, so to save money Atlas just made a 'compromise' fuel tank to slide over the RS3 bulge. The RS32 chassis is just a lengthened RS3 chassis...a big let down IMHO.
There is no solution but to mill the width of the tank down and make your own tank from styrene.
