Trade SDMP/Finney7 - Driving a Geep?

I believe the Weaver towers do preclude proper detailing of the cab. Something akin to your proposal above would be much more suitable for the cab, and have the added benefit of opening the volume of the long hood for dcc or speaker installations.
The 2 Weaver Geeps I have drive through a tower on the rear truck, & shaft passing through the fuel tank to the front truck, so the cabs are clear for detailing, more or less, apart from the way the cab fits the main shell. The trade-off is of course the shaft visibility under the frames, which Steph's system avoids.

Well, Filton airfield has just closed, so I'm sure I can find somewhere to keep 'em if I needed to. I guess I should have said I meant Heljan ones, not 12":1' versions.

You've got it...
