  • A re-do of the Mack truck between helping with my wife's recovery from rotator cuff surgery. Another one on the bench. I hit the top edge with the air eraser for the worn effect. Used the copy cat eraser and have to say it works fine. Used baking soda as a medium.





    I'm made these charts on the printer for my small pike throttles so when visitor come they can refer to the chart for the functions. Makes me wonder why Digitrax hasn't made overlays or modified the control panels?





    Have a great day!

      • Thanks Rick!

        Tightened up 3 figures tonight!

        Need to get hot on the semaphore. I blasted the figures and semaphore with baking soda. Adds lots of tooth/texture for the paint etc.

              Excellent job with the figures. They have a lot of character.

                    • Thanks for the nice comments!

                      They are from knuckleduster. Website is here:

                      They carry HO & O scale and are perhaps close to being the best. Pewter material and inexpensive.

                      I get mine off ebay from this vendor. She is great! https://www.ebay.com/str/Dzurs-Treas...at=63604291013

                      • FYI: The figure on the right side is S scale. He's going in my sand tower upper level and headroom was limited. Plus the smaller ones work harder@ devils MT.

                              • This is being reprinted now with a thicker base/braces and some tiny mods on the gears. Tower was warping. Four and one half hour print time @ 1250 layers.
