I have been working on a couple of Lix like locos in 3/4 inch scale for a while

The basis for the loco is a Bachmann Davenport. Most of the construction is from

scraps of plastic from the cutoff bin. I model in 3/4 inch scale to match a collection

cars and trucks in this scale.

I agree with Ray. Will be fun to watch your progress Ron.

Hmmm.

Lix like--sounds like those cupcakes Charley promised us

Nice work! Keep us posted--

3/4" scale cars? Kits? Scratch? Charley's semi?

I miss Charley and his rambling way of posting in forums. I don't even see him over on the 7-8ths anymore. Shephen

Last I recall, Charley was into real 1:1 scale 18" gauge mining equipment with track running around his property out there in Nevada. Could be he is operating in Area 51 now, helping the poor aliens fit in.
