Here's one of ex-Mogollon Railway supt's Model T now operating on the Silver City NG. Shown here on Pinos Altos Creek trestle rounding Hairpin Curve. This car is powered by an old Grandt Line "Micro-Mo" drive and r/c. She's been around for about 10 years.

1/35 is just the size for doing something like that.

I like it--although I think I said that before.

OK then, here's another rail bus. This one is On30, owned by David Cox. Built from a Russkie bus that had to be smuggled into the US from Aufgotchastan. Powered by an old Sagami (or Zucinni?) can motor with drive from a Bachmann On30 rail truck. Oh yes, this one is r/c with onboard battery...no worries, no wires to the track!



The thumbnail view is because I had to snarf it from his gallery to my post and, you know...s%^t happens!

That was a fun little project. The hood & main body is die cast metal, the underframe & roof are plastic. BTW, the lead truck frame is from 60 year old Mantua "Belle of the Eighties", the spoked wheels are PSC, and the rear drivers come from a Bachmann On30 Climax. How's that for "bashing"?

" Anything is 'fair game'. "

Just quoting Woodie :cb: from page 1

;)

This funky-junk just mighta been up before ... somewhere here ?

Anyways ... I LIKE HER ! :P



This wasn't developed by NASA for the space-program & was never planned for use on the moon.

:moose:

Si.

I like the simple steel-frame.
What look like 'speeder' type wheels.
Homebrew 'trucks'.
Funky truss-rods.
&
Simple bodywork/engine enclosure.

Wow...that looks like a tiny Brookville critter superstructure sitting on a log car with 2 push car "trucks" underneath. A most interesting and highly model-able little doo dad. OK, who'll be the first to build one? DOUBLE DOG DARE!!

I like both, but, having spent 72 years with model A Fords I have to say I like the little one better!

Hi Herb.

I know you like colour pix. for reasons of livery & weathering etc.

So I thought I'd do a suggested painting guide for the B&W Cadillac in post #37.

Wheels - Rust.
Engine - Flakey Rust.
Chassis - Dark Rust.
Bodywork - Streaky Rust.
Exhaust - Rust.

:moose:

Si.
