Default Model railroad help.

Hi All,

I'm in need of some help with a railway model. I have a 51' TTX flat car in HO scale and want to put a Cat 627G wheel tractor scraper on the flat car. I'm having trouble placing the chains onto the model. My question is has anyone done something like this before and maybe give me someadvice on how to do it properly. Have you got any photo's you can e-mail me.

Any advice most apperciated.

These 2 flats were not done by me. The first picture is of a CAT grader on a 60' Intermountian flat, same as the other. The chain on the first picture was wrapped around the front axil, then glued together once around the axil to the origial chain. The second was 2 chains that were plastic that shoot up from the middle of the car (where the chains were stored on the real thing) and glued to the underbody of the machine. 3rd image shows where on the first flat car the chains were fastened, on the front of the car. Sorry for the bad image quality, my camera doesn't seem to like taking closeups.
