Re: Baldwin RF-16 Sharks in South Australia

Hi Graham,
Great work on your Sharks! And the D&H-paint job is really fantastic.
These are my favourite 4-axle freight locomotives - great to see them in 1.5", too (although I'll never have the luck to admire them personally).

Kind regards
Norman

Thank you for the nice comments, guys . Apart from lettering and narrowing the lower red stripe by 3/16" the A-unit's paint job is finished. http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-ak6tJGV2JDs/Vm1yeXTuVAI/AAAAAAAAA2k/4OjCxDI1cy8/s1600/front_1.jpg http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-fx53fdNEuc8/Vm1ycYe38nI/AAAAAAAAA2c/2wI-p...

Re: M-10005 'City of Denver'

Thnks for the nice comments. @brian: Thanks for the tip with McCarr - however living over the big pond I have to deal with the domestic DIY-markets which seem to have a more limited supply than in the US. @cbrew: Your trucks are much more elaborateed than mine - fortunately my photos are a bit out o...

Re: M-10005 'City of Denver'

Hi cbrew, Probably you looked for a prototypical motor-mounting system (nose suspended) - however, since I have to reduce the rpm by factor 4.x, the sprocket on the wheels axis would have had quite a big diameter. It would have been close to the wheel and to the rail's head - I'm afraid of damaging ...

Re: M-10005 'City of Denver'

Hi Mr. Ron, Thanks for the nice comment. However, applying the rivets (as you already guessed, for decorative purposes only) was 'old fashioned' (that is: tedious & time-consuming). I looked for small nails (steel, nickel-plated, 1.2mm diameter, app. 2mm (5/64") head diameter), drilled holes in a sl...

Re: M-10005 'City of Denver'

17.000 rivets / nails later and after setting up a two-controller solution for powering I finally started the paint job...of course too late in the year for having warm & dry conditions outside. Too much wind and the neighbour will be happy to have a new yellow car. power set up: eack truck has its ...

Re: MILW E80-E83 steeplecab

Hi Norman thats a good idea thank uou. I would like to see some pictures of what you have done. Thanks Hi Mick, a kind of misunderstanding - I did no detailing on the NKP-model. I offered photos of the model's details only for the case you need some infos that are not available on prototype photos ...

Re: MILW E80-E83 steeplecab

Maybe a silly suggestion: buying a NKP brass H0-model (it's cheaper than the OMI-version)? Photos are here: http://www.brasstrains.com/Classic/Product/Detail/056641/HO-Brass-Model-Train-NKP-Nickel-Plate-Milwaukee-ES-2-Steeple-Cab-Switcher-E-80-Custom I've got the unpainted version which was cheaper....

Re: 4 Ton Plymouth build, 1:5 scale, 4.75" gauge, Leslie Sal

Hi Eric,

although not being a fan of those little critters I have to admit that your work taught me otherwise.
You created a real beauty with amazing details.
Please keep on with reports on your progress!
