The kit is:  Resicast 35.154 Ford T Draisine

... and it includes three wagons.  I've opened the kit and it looks like nice castings (lots of small pieces though) ... have had the "sense" not to start into it until I finish some other stuff first.  (That's rare!) :)

According to an article on Armorama, it's been recently re-released by Resicast at 120 Euros (about $150 -- gulp!).

I got mine for something like $40-$50 ... I just had "Resicast 1/35" as a saved search on ebay for a long time (probably a year or two!) until it popped up at a price that I could afford!  Then, it was time to go ahead and stash it away for a fun future rail/auto project ...

RJProducts.com (in California) has the kit listed for $98.00 -- I've purchased from them before (including MK35 figures and a nice Resicast machinery set) -- and their service has been good.  Placed the first order with them by phone to make sure they seemed "friendly" ... and they were. :2t:

This here is gitten outta control! Redikalickalickanis.  (I think Sylvester Puddycat used to say that) Sure as Hades wasn't Elmer Fudd--or wuz it?.

Expecting discerning modelers to mess with a totally unknown scale, is like thinking that running trains without power to the track is possible.

Then this Sullivan guy wants to "keep it a secret". From who??

I shall now retire to my cave. Annoy me with this foolishness again before Spring and risk the wrath of the Herbert, descending upon you.

Let's see that gives me maybe 5 months to turn up some wide tread wheels, and-----

Herbie-I thot I wuz readin' a post by hour ol buddy Charley but then I seen Gromit's face and knowed that maybe "Herbie caught whot Charley got".

MooHaHaHa.....
Sullivan believes in keeping secrets, he's seen stuff in Muj's back yard that if he said anything about would lead to a federal indictment or two. And he would be taken to testify in front of the Sue-Preme Coat.
What has this to do with 1:35 scale? Not a stinkin' thing but I have been told by my new engineer that I had better be nice or she'll give me a whoppin'...I recon that I won't be nice...

Woodie,

Checked on the Resicast stuff...Shhhh...don't tell anyone. (Whispers) They have rum jugs! Perfect for tequilla, too. Hmmm...mine for cinnabar (mercury) or make tequilla?

Really, the item list is huge but a lot a bit pricey to fit into some budgets. Still, great eye candy. I can see where the military diorama builders could have a field day charging up their credit cards.

James, yes I know there is "detail overload" in them links. I look at the stuff and then at my billfold and then back again...that's when I get out some "stuff" and begin whackin' on bits & pieces. I am really glad that I am not a military modeler, I would be building dioramas under the I 40 bridge! Money, honey! And I do love those wonderful 1:35 ladies, but remember those Master Box girls? They now work at the Gila Hotel. And the local guys and "ugly" women...thanks to Dr. Frank N Furter, the population continues to grow. I would love to build wonderful things like Dallas builds but just the spiders and ants would get to appreciate any of the work. And the gekkos..squirrels...and those dadgum birds who eat the mulberries above the layout!
I'm afraid the secret is out, it's too late to turn back. Look what we're missing in On30 and Sn2. I used to think that we were just nuts but now, we have company.

Viva la 35,
Hasta la vista...

Woodrow

Not too far back I pulled out all my Sn2 stuff and tinkered with it a bit...laid some flex out and let the two still-working locos have a workout. I was actually considering doing a little of the Sn2 when both of those developed shorts that I could not diagnose quickly. Shucks! More door stops or maybe fishing sinkers.

On another note...the benchwork for the 35n2 is revamped and as soon as I can get a bit of a rest from cub scouts and grandkids I'll be working on that again. The boy wants to help lay track and dirt. I'll let him have a hand in it.

1/35th is alive as Dr. F would say. You just have to be a little 'touched' to do it.

I keep being tempted by 1:35, but then I get tempted by far too many things and I need to control myself - at least my wife tells me I do....

It's a very nice scale, good friend of mine does British industrial railways in it. I've even started a few freight cars in it. But I also get tempted by 5.5n3 (not to mention On18) and I have a whole pile of On30 I could use. I've also got a half built HO layout I could convert - all I have to do is just make up my mind.

Decisions, decisions.....


Tom

Tom-go with the flow! 1:35 scale is for you.

These droids are not the ones you seek...

Woodie-causing further trouble

Yes but if I move to 1:35 then I'm going to start making things and your scale won't be so exclusive any more. :bg:

Having said that I can't afford to buy 3-d printed freight cars in that scale so I'd have to scratch build them anyway - but locos and passenger cars I can cheat on.

I'm very tempted to do something with a South American theme - not sure quite what yet.

Other problem if I convert the HO layout - it's quite a big layout , would need a lot of stock to run it. It would also need a lot of trackwork changes for 1:35, much less for On30 or 55n3

Tom-I ain't worried about exclusive stuff! I simply love the scale and have no intentions of rubber gauging again.

What to do with HO track? Bury it in weeds & dirt...simple.
