N Scale Forklifts Nearing Completion

My forklift project is progressing nicely.  I painted the tires and wheels, and installed the roll cages on all of them.  I still need to add the operator at this point.  Since the kits come with extra parts, I decided to take an extra operator and see if I could cut the seat and steering wheel from the casting.  Using a sharp hobby knife I was able to make a separate seat and steering column without a lot of trouble.  You can see them in the nearest forklift in the photo below.  It looks more appropriate for a machine at rest, parked while not in use. The last steps will be adding the forks and then applying some weathering to make them look used.

  1. Another factor to pay attention to when looking at the different used forklifts for sale is their safety levels and current state of repair. It’s highly recommended to have an expert take a look at the forklift before you agree to purchase anything.
