  • Vehicles for the Lake Shore Industrial RR

    I’ve been working on a couple of vehicles for the O-Scale Lake Shore Industrial layout. These are junk for the junk yard.

    The Revell Chevy 2-Ton truck received some modifications. I made a new right front fender from .005 copper. First I built the cab then I formed the wrecked fender over the good one and then I cut the good one off.

    The bed had molded wood which I replaced with real strip wood. I set my Proxxon table saw fence at the thickness of the metal trim. Then gently lowered the bed and cut out the wood center piece. The side gates were also replaced with real wood and plastic stanchions. I flattened the front tires and gave it a modest rust job.







    This was a old Chevy pickup that I built from a Russian kit. It’s also had its share of rust.

          That is fabulous work indeed Frank! Great looking rust and weathering. Your front fender using .005 copper is fantastic looking, as well as the rest of that vehicle.

              Thanks Carl.

              Ted, the frame is just peeking out under the front fenders in the shot of the driver’s door. The wheels are gone because it’s a junk yard scrap vehicle.

              Thanks Louis. Didn’t you mean, “as well as the rust of that vehicle.” The .005 copper was really a little too heavy but double heavy duty aluminum foil was way too thin. Maybe .005 aluminum would be better.

              Thanks Jerry.

                Frank,

                It's nice to see you working with other things, which makes an all-around modeler. I like the work you did on the stake truck. Other one isn't too bad either. Add a few spiders and some mossy vegetation when you place them and you'll be in business.

                    Rich, we’re adding a scrap yard to the yard area and these are the first vehicles to the inventory. I’d like to find some cheap 1:48 cars and trucks to smash. I don’t want to spend $15 for a car and then smash it to pieces.

                    Thanks Greg.

                          That's the terrible truth about this area, no swap meets.

                            Frank,

                            Perhaps you can swindle a few from the Bob Santo's Integrity Motors...

                              Is it legal to use the word "Integrity" when talking about a used car dealership?
