They handle just about all the kits available and you are in luck...1:48 military kits are coming back in style. I suppose many modelers want something smaller than 1:35.



1/48 just looks too small for what I have, I’ve found. My 1/43
scale Studebaker is comically larger than the Solido 1/50 stuff I had (which is
why I’m getting rid of most of it).




I painted a gaggle of 1/48 scale WW2 GI’s and when I put them next
to normal O scale figures, they looked like kids in comparison. I’ll be getting
rid of those, too, I guess or maybe putting in the far background for a minor
forced perspective issue…

Hi Lee :wave:


I can't really comment on 1:48 military stuff, except for the Tamiya dozer.


The 1:35 figures, which are my SIZE benchmark, do vary a tad !


Vehicle scale, I don't seem to have a problem with.


I have a 'deuce & a half' in 1:32 scale, it matches Airfix 1:32 soldier figures, which I think are very nice BTW.


The 1:35 vehicles seem well scaled to me, by Wiki measurements ( slightly uncertain though ... Ah ... Mmmm ... ).


There must be some cool 1:48 vehicle kits out there for you Lee. ! ?


I have searched to EXHAUSTION for suitable 1:35 kits...
...I think the aircraft MOB in 1:48 have some nice WWII vehicles.


:moose:


Si.

I have all I need now, as I have three 1/43 Willys/Ford-MB/GPW Jeeps, a Command Car, the Studebaker 2.5 ton truck, and a 3/4 ton weapons carrier I haven't finished in stateside markings and weathered yet...

I got the digital proof for my layout article in the On30 Annual the other day. Editor Chris Lane did a GREAT job with it and I’m very happy with how it turned out. It’s 6 pages in length, which surprised me (even though I provided over a dozen photos, the overall concept I used to create the layout with, and enough text to explain what I was doing).
I think people will be happy with it when the Annual comes out in a couple of weeks (or so)!

I am very much looking forward to it.  You have tantalized us with your photos on the forum to the extent that my mouth is watering.
Well, not really.  But I am anxious to get my copy.

Reg,
Keep in mind, anyone who's read through this thread and seen my website has already seen a great deal of the content.
FYI, I'll have a sales table on Saturday (though probably not Sunday) at the model train swap meet in Chehalis, WA this weekend, if anyone local is coming (cough cough Reg, cough). If you're in the area and happen to run across me (I'll probably be wearing my White Pass & Yukon cap and my NASA jacket), be sure to say hi!

I'd been wanting something on the layout illustrating the history that it'd originally been a different railroad that was eventually bought out by the ET&WNC, and I thought a freight car as a shed would be great for that.
I took a stock Bachmann refer and did this to it, as the ET&WNC never had any refrigerated cars:

Hi Lee :wave:


TOO COOL FOR SCHOOL ! :cool:


I like it.

Guess what I have a spare Tri-ang HO one of ?

Yep ... an ol' wood side reefer just like ^^ that one.

It's on the list . . . :slow:


Personally I think Joses 'grounded cars' are gonna be good...

...the pool, double-glazing & sat. dish are pretty high-spec. ;)


:moose:


Si.


There are quite a few 'grounded car' photos on the net.

Def. a popular reuse of old and unwanted, outdated cars.
