Re: 3/4" Scale J1e

Hey Jack,

no worry about it, every model engineer makes mistakes from time to time...we're no machines. That makes us human beeing. To help and to find out of this situation is the art...and you did it. By the way , like always very beautyful work.

All the best,

Re: Project: N&W class J on 5"gauge

Hey Jack,

thank you for the warm recognition.
Still a lot work to do on the truck, suspension, axle compensation and so on.
We carry on.

All the very best
Chris
