Nice finish, Russ.
How do you make your custom decals?

Thanks, Guys...Frederic, I had a supplier make those for me using my own graphic design. These decals were made using an Alps printer. Unfortunately, because of poor delivery time and unacceptable quality on a second order for a larger herald set, I have to find another supplier. It's a shame because the first set came out nicely, as you can see. The lettering is from a Microscale set. 'YC' is for yard caboose. It only makes the short trip between the junction yard and the hannite mine up the line a few miles. I have to send out an email to Pat Turner at Turner Model Works to find out if my detail parts got shipped. I also have LPs coming in to crew the caboose from Arttista Accessories, so I still have more work to do.

Here's a couple of shots with the interior details and crew. I have to brush it down with matte clear and put in some other details, but the big work is over with.

This is an Sn3 flat car that I built using a Village Depot cast underframe, details parts and trucks from PBL and styrene. Keith Wiseman from Wiseman Model Services had a couple of these underframes for sale on eBay, so I snatched 'em up.









Now it's ready for the paint shop for faded paint, peeling lettering, and weathering. The other underframe will be used for an MW tool type car.

Nice flat, Russ. It seems that your dream team finds it is a great place to rest...

Recently I have decided to try Sn3 and bought a CM Forks Creek Depot and some stuff from PBL.
Am also in aprocess of converting an HO Spectrum 0-6-0 to Sn3, although it is stalled for the moment and awaits regauging (I dont know how to go about it-the axels are not uniform in diameter and are thicker in between the wheels, making it impossible to simply push the wheels in.....Anyone have any suggestions?)
I have also finished a SP Type 1 boxcar from PBL(will post pics when Ive painted and weathered it)

Very nice building, Alexander, beautifully painted and weathered.
I have no clue for your axles problem. If nobody has an answer here, you might consider asking on the yahoo Sn3 list. Somebody may have done something like this there.

What a great depot model, Alexander! I particularly like the way the corrugated roof sections are warped. Terrific paint and weathering, too! Keep the photos coming!

thought I'd post a few progress photos of the 0-6-0 I've mentioned. At the moment it is not yet in Sn3, as I have not gotten to figuring out the regauging. It is still in early stages of completion, with much more detailing, etc to be done to the superstructure.

Alex This will be an excellent conversion when complete. Did you scratch build the cab? I really like it.

My current build:

The rivetting work looks nice, Alex. Did you use a mechanical help to do it?
