I collected some ponderosa pine twigs....

It is always a good idea to cook in the oven all "natural" products as soon as they are brought into the house.
You never know what may be hiding in them...

On that log cribbing.
It might come to where you have to put on your movie set builder's hat, and carve some representations from square stock of some kind.

Even with that, as a general rule of life, it is nice to be back to making progress on a layout.

I did cook them as I had heard that before.

I'm going to think about doing that.

Hi Patrick  :wave:



How are things going with the Fn18 ?  :)








The extension seems like a result.

The BASHed 'Model Power' Radio-Controlled loco was working good you said.  :thumb:



How are you doing ?



:)



Si.

I’ve been good but unfortunately haven’t made any progress on the Crown Butte mine.

It’s been packed away for over a year but plan on getting it out soon.

My locomotive works well considered how crudely I widened its gauge.

I need some skips to pull with the locomotive.

Plan is to scratch some V-tips out of brass.

Your more ambitious than I. Brass is a real challenge to me.

I built a couple out of card stock and after adding a little weight they work great.
The tubs and the frame are card stock.
I applied thin CA to harden it and being sloppy it also adds a rough metal effect.

I was so quick to reply that I posted pics of my 7/8ths cars.
These are the Fn18 cars.

I recommend giving card stock a try.
So easy to work with and costs nothing.
I eat a lot of cereal though to get the card stock!
Really - scissors, exacto and super glue.

The engine in the first picture is also card stock.

Bob,

Those are amazing models you built of card stock which I have never tried building with but probably should.

I'd like to try building out of brass as it would give some weight to the models,
as I would like to make them dump as the tram pulls them through the ore house.

I haven't really heard from anyone else modeling in Fn18,
although I bought Fn18 wheels from Gary Raymond and he said that he sells them.

I'd like to see more pictures, do you have any threads detailing your Fn18 modeling.

Hi Patrick  :wave:



Bobs ore-cars are GREAT aren't they !  :thumb:

He is definitely a Grand Master, when it comes to the corn-flakes & captain-crunch builds !!  ;)



I have gotta try that 'soaking in super-glue' tip myself ... It looks like a really rusty & crusty surface.  :P

Inspiring work.



Bobs 'Geneseo Railway' Thread in the 'Narrow Gauge' Forum, has more of his builds & loads more cool photos.  :cool:



:moose:



Si.
