Greetings,

A while back I picked up a Z Shorty chassis to see what all the talk was about. I really didnít intend to do much with it but I decided to clean out some of the junk from the scrap bin and build a diminutive boxcab diesel from brass and styrene.

There is no real story behind it, I just built something like a more modern AGEIR, and I gave it an EMD builderís plate. Perhaps a competing design. I wanted it to feel small and cramped, so itís no taller than a boxcar. I wanted a little color so I went with a black and orange scheme with simple lettering, and an anthracite roof.

Wow. The detail at a small scale is very impressive.

I enjoyed looking at your website. Full of terrific modeling.

Thanks folks!

Yeah the ships are my primary focus, all 100% built from scratch using boxwood and brass. Absolutely no 3D printing.

Here are some photos from my layout and some of my ship models. My ships are my primary focus, all are built completely from scratch in boxwood and brass. Almost everything on the layout was scratch built as well.

The K-37 locomotive is a scratch build too, an involved one at that.
