Mountain Goat is an unknown quantity at this point

Here it is. It has wheels! It also sits with the roofline and steps at the bottom at heights where I want them to be. It runs nice and freely. Well worth the wait. From an 0 gauge toy to a 0-16.5 gauge model... (OK, toy. )
So now some paint, couplings and patience and all will be done.

I've also included pictures of the remains of the origional chassis which is wider and used to be longer before it lost its balconies.

They look good MG, well done. It goes to show what can be done with imagination and a few resources.

Thanks Mijj. Though I had the coach to work on for a Christmas present, it did cost 10 as a secondhand price before II started work on it. Not sure how much postage costs were.
All in, the cost to buy and convert have been somewhere around 16 to 18 at a guess. Certainly less then 20, which isn't too bad for a 7mm scale coach, so it fits the budget.
I've not factored in time taken to convert it to my requirements though... Where would I start?

Thanks Shildon. A little more work to do before it is finished. Not much left to do now.
