Looking for 1.5" scale car parts

Post by Curtis_F » Fri Jan 10, 2003 10:56 am


I'm looking for personal opinions on avliable 1.5" scale car parts for a couple of 1907 era cattle cars.

Who, in your own opinions, makes the best looking of the following:

Queen posts (for a 5/32" dia. rod)
Turnbuckles (#8-36UNF or #6-40UNF threads)
Sliding car door hanging mechanisim.

Thank you all for your time

Railroad Warehouse is a very good place to deal. Bob has a lot of great parts for scratch building. [img]/ubb/images/graemlins/laugh.gif"%20alt="[/img]
