Too large for what I'm modeling but looks like something Ian and maybe a few others could use...

Pretty cool. Bachmann has a full page ad in the Nov RMC issue about the return of the HO "Cityscenes" line of mostly larger buildings - it would be cool if Bmann would do them in N.

Ordered! I'm a big fan of Lundes new stuff since outta DPM.


Ditto with the new HO Bachmann ad. Would love to see those in N.

Roger Holmes did an article or two on converting the HO ones to N.  They came out great.

My Mother worked for the American Chicle Company in Long Island City in the mid 50's for a while . Lunde Studios would be the perfect company to make rail fed big factories with a decent footprint .

Actually I think the best for that is still Walthers. Lunde does great at their city buildings, but a large footprint rail fed building would be super expensive because of the lower production casting runs. Walthers would at least have the larger distribution market and cheaper manufacturing costs.

Remember how long ago that was? Or maybe the Roger can comment.

I "re-scaled" the Metropolitan Building by cutting each window casting apart and moving the solid bottom panel to the middle and adding a sash to each window.



I also reduced the height of the first floor and its doorways.

The write-up was in Railroad Model Craftsman 5 yrs ago or so.  I'll look at home tonight and get the exact issue.

Best regards,

Roger

Even with just those minor changes it looks like that model is really more towards the N scale side in scale than HO. Nice!

RMC August 2004.

I'm definitely going to order one of the new Lunde skyscrapers.  Thanks, Michael, for the heads up.
Best regards,

Roger
