    Tony in your model you have captured the wagon wonderfully. I really appreciated the actual size photo as it truely reflects your challenge of working on such a small model.


    Yes, that has a jolt to the mind when I do that.[^]

      Tony, I don't want to clog up your string so I will do this as quickly as I can:

      These two are basically the same book. The Ivan Collins collection is a world's BEST. All large

      scale models built exactly as the real one's were.

      All drawings are available from the museum but there is a selection of drawings in the back of the books. ISBN 0-87595-072-8 and 0-87595-268-2



      These two are on making models and are loaded with drawings: ISBN 0-9505775-0-2 and 0-906922-01-1



      These two are on real vehicles: ISBN 0-906922-05-4 and 0-943924-09-X



      These are general interest on real wagons etc.



      Years ago when I was making some wagon models I bought several of these books from CRISS-CROSS CREATIONS,. MINIATURE ANTIQUE TRANSPORT PLANS, BOX 324, WAYNE, NJ 07470. Don't know if they are still in business.

      Cheers,

      Bob

        Bob, You won't be in any way clogging up my 'string'. You or anyone else are very welcome to post here.

        Thank you for this info, I will give a search and see what I can find.

        most appreciated.

            Thanks again Bob, I just ordered 3 of them from Amazon, nice prices, as low as 2 bucks, and three others I already have.

            Looks like the Collins one will be a good one.

              Tony that is absolutely amazing work, especially in such a small scale. Give your eyes a rest and get back to work.

                Thanks Frank. I hope to build some more wagons in time, they are fun to build, if not a little tedious. I learned a lot from the research, and that alone was worth it.

                    I agree with Batey. I don't know how I ever missed this one Tony. Outstanding craftsmanship, fantastic looking wagon!

                      Me too Tony, looks fantastic. I wish I could model 10% of what you produce.

                        Adrian, Louis and Rich, thank you all very much. When I saw this in St. Louis, I had to model it, and as any good modeler, I took a ton of photos, my wife, as always, being very patient up to a point. I just with I had a scale with me. There's always a challenge with any new build, and this one as I remember, presented quite a few, and lots of research. I remember Russ Reinberg from Westlake Publishing loves wagons, and he wanted to put it in the magazine, but the article was too late for him to publish at the time I think.
