Tie Tong or Ice Tong question
Posted by Bruce Scott On 11/17/2018 At 9:22:25 PM

Turkey Day Sale @ Bob Santos's, Integrity Motors
Posted by quartergauger48 On 11/17/2018 At 3:13:52 PM
A tribute build to outstanding contributor and good friend to this forum, Mr Robert Santos, (AKA) SgtBob'.. Master Modeler

While in the US Air Force, Bob owned a 1954 Mercury, sea foam green. Just happens the exact car is available in a 1:43 die cast model.

So, I couldn't help it, and had to build this diorama in tribute to Bob, for all the help that he has provided and tips shared on this forum helping many in achieving better modeling skills. Thanks Bob, this one is for you'..
2018 FineScale Contest Room Videos
Posted by Ojaste On 11/11/2018 At 09:47:23 AM
A quick short video from the 2018 FineScape Expo contest room. There were very few entries and the lighting was poor to take good video. However, it is what is was and this video might just give you some ideas.

There was a diorama/module at the 2018 FineScale Expo that had lots of fine structures and mini scenes. It was the best part of the show IMHO.

Glue Question
Posted by Bruce Scott On 11/06/2018 At 3:16:07 PM
A fellow modeler has asked me, "Does anyone offer a glue that absorbs stain?"

Would anyone here know?
Louís Logging Oxen Flatcar
Posted by desertdrover On 11/05/2018 At 11:50:14 AM
"Please do not reply to this thread" it is for information only on locating my Ox car build.
You can follow my construction build here; http://www.railroad-line.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=51065 under "Model Railroad Forums / Logging, Mining, & Narrow minded"

Awhile back many of you seen my logging horse car build. You can find my Logging Horse Flatcar build here; http://www.railroad-line.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=48573
Now I am attempting to build an Oxen flatcar for my logging company in HO scale. Like before, I had found some "G" scale models, from Lothar Gauf, a guy called the diorama man, of Ox cars, see two pictures of his work below. It is his fantastic builds that give me the inspiration for these types of projects. Trying in HO to capture his outstanding workmanship.



Campbell #400 Stockyard (ME Nelson) build
Posted by ebergh On 10/30/2018 At 7:51:34 PM
My current project was the Campbell #400 Stockyard (ME Nelson). I managed to modify it a bit to fit my layout's needs...The layout is set in 1962, along the edge of the SF Bay's suburbs where the rural ranches are fading away to be replaced by the suburban sprawl, and Hobby Ranches and horse stables are becoming the new norm. My Stockyard represents a couple of the old guys from the ranch days who are hanging on as Stock Brokers, providing premium stock to these folks, shipping in/out their fancy horses and arranging transport for the still popular annual Rodeo participants and their mounts. So, they have added some horse stalls and cleaned up their act, a bit!
Campbell kits have recently been updated with some laser cut sheet stock, and refreshed paperwork, but they are still pretty much the same - a nice reliable build. Having DIGITAL CALIPERS does make it go a lot easier! So does a nice stash of strip wood...
I did add interior/exterior lighting and detailing, but it will never be seen, as this one is 2ft from the front... good practice I guess.

Just found this site I have looked at several threads. WOW! Karl O. is quite the modeler. I have found several tips that I will gladly use.
Just starting on my railroad after waiting for years for the spare time, spare $ & spare room. LOL (Honest Honey; I'll only spend about an hour a week in there.
Once I get something really going I'm sure I'll register and make some posts.

This site is like the proverbial "kid in the candy store" (shows my age, I guess). I'm armchair modeling in On30 'till the basement's done, and loving the contributors. Thanks !

Thanks for the great notes about the Divco Milk Truck. The Woodward Cruise was the first time it was shown since restoration.
