    Default Show your models!

    I thought we should have a thread to show any train models you want to. Can be your whole collection, something new, or your favorite.

    I'll start with a tank car I recently finished weathering. It's a Walthers car, done with chalks, oils, and acrylics, no airbrushing (it hadn't arrived yet.) Graffiti is done with an india ink marker. I replaced the couplers with Kadee SF shelf couplers with the trip pins removed. Eventually I'm converting all my HO stuff to Sergent couplers and semi-scale metal wheels and it'll look even better. This is the first car I've actually finished weathering.

    That looks as good as your digital models. What's with the blue on the end cap of the roller bearing? I see that on freight cars all the time. New wheel set or something?

    Default Latest aquisition



    My LGB Stainz Locomotive and Chiquita Bananen boxcar orphaned from a Train set that was issued in the 1970s and has long been discontinued.

    And yes its surrounded by a lot of dissected/otherwise HO stuff. I have HO trackage on the floor in two loops where I've been running my HO and On30 equipment.

    Carpet railways happen to be fun.
    And to think i'd never upgrade from 2006...

    Default Made for DeviantART, but What the hell...



    A Bunch of pictures of my Stainz in action on my grandpa's G-scale layout.

    It's not scenic-ed, but the performance of the trackwork is flawless.

    Most of the rolling stock and all of the Locomotives are LGB too
    And to think i'd never upgrade from 2006...

    I see some Vodka, some Russain Vodka, "let me have some Russian Vodka, some Russian Vodka" as one of my favorit bands Sonata Artica will sing

    Nice C&S 2-6-0. Theres one at the hobby shop near by, and it makes me wonder if I should move to G; but then again I remember that the 4-6-0s are not scaled proparly.

    Rock On!

    I now have a red Rock Island E6 with a "shovel nose". Similar to this.

    I have 2 N Scale-factory painted-Con Cor-PRR U50B-Brunswick Green freight locos...even though PRR had none, they still look cool hauling my 25 PRR Iron Ore Genny's.
