BIS C&S water tank for HOn3
Posted by Graffen On 04/04/2020 At 08:42:28 AM
Hi all.
I just built this.


Limited edition kit #168.


I've had it for a very long time, and each time I looked at the manual, I just put it away again...
The big issue was the tapered tank and the bands.
I just bit the bullet now and built it!
The base was rather easy to build.


To solve the tapering of the scale 8"x 2" planks, I made a fixture in my 3D printer.


The planks was to be reduced by 1/64" on one end... So a good fixture was crucial.


I taped the planks before removing them from the fixture. That's so I didn't mix the small and big ends.


I stained them while taped.


The wood was then glued to the cardboard tank base.

I only had to trim some of them to get good vertical alignment.

Finished tank:








All in all a very nice kit.
ROUND BARNS
Posted by hairball On 03/27/2020 At 1:16:16 PM
At one time I was looking into building a round barn or an 8 sided wood or stone barn. Searching using google turned up more examples that I thought would have existed. Apparently they are most popular in Penn.

So spotted this build on ebay and thought I would share it in scratch building section.

One of my more challenging O scale scratch builds having only the front wall view to go by.

Usually I will build something again to see if I could improve upon it. Got sold right after it was finished and shipped to Schenectady NY layout

above is a link to a tom yorke o scale WSLC cookhouse, specifically the REYNOLDS CAMP.

I built it once sitting on the ground as stock , then had the idea, why not raise this up onto a deck against a hillside. I built a few variations on this as shown.

Walls are USA Gypsum hydrocal white, windows grandt line, wood decking northeastern scale lumber. Wood colouring done with FIEBINGS leather dye USMC black and 99% pure isopropanol alcohol.

ROAD KILL DINER IN O SCALE
Posted by hairball On 03/22/2020 At 6:15:56 PM
http://modelersforum.com/index.php?topic=4841.0

this is model of a diner I built scratch using a Bachmann ON30 scale dining car. I enjoyed building this one and coming up with the name.

Some whacko once took offense at the font I used on the diner.

Hi, I hope someone can provide me with some information on an HO model kit I recently found. It is made by S&E Suzuki & Edwards out of Tokyo. It is a metal die cast stock car. I am told this kit came out right after WWII, which would make it 50 to 60 years old or more. Does anyone out there have any info on this maker or familiar with them? This kit has all its parts and I am just curious if there is a small marker out there that might be interested in such an item, and how much it might be worth to those select few. Thank you

I have known about the L&W since I was a kid in Thomson. The EMD loco is an ex Ga & Fl RR unit #70. It was one of thier originals. There is a blue L&W boxcar parked in the wye with the loco. It has been there about a year. I was in Folkston a few days ago and spotted an L&W box in the consist of a passing CSX train. I drove to Wadley and nothing had changed in the wye. Upon leaving and heading north to Thomson, I caught sight of some boxcars sitting on the L&W main. I followed the tracks to an abandoned junk yard and there sat 4-5 Pickens RR box cars. There were trees growing up around the trucks. They all had roller bearings mounted in the old friction bearing journal boxes. I don't think thats legal now.
