N Scale Clearance at Model Power

Just thought I would pass on the info that Model Power has a couple of nice N scale items on super clearance including their FM switcher body shell at $1.00 each plus shipping. I just picked up 10 for bashing and paid an additional $10 for shipping to AK. They also have a Pennsy looking steam shell for $3.00...and a couple of nice Air Force products for Dave!

Best wishes, Dave

If you lend someone $20, and never see that person again, it was probably worth it.

LOL

I think I saw an NTRAK module that depicted that exact scene...

I forgot to mention the giraffe loads for those who don't want to paint theirs. ;)
Unfortunately no mention of scale on the animals, but I am guessing that they are larger than a toddlers' windpipe.
The wrecking cranes are a good deal at $6

Agreed. But add $9 for shipping and it's a no go for me. Some good deals in there if you need the FM shells. ;D

That's why I bought 10 of them! What I don't use I can always eBay at a later date. I am using 2 shells for each switcher on a VO-1000 mechanism and have 4 or 5 orphan Trix mechanisms that I can match with shells.

B6 shells for $3? Don't mind if I do!

Some of this stuff has been on sale for a long time, so they must have had plenty in stock. Because of the shipping costs, it might be a good idea to check the list of parts that are not on sale. Besides an FM shell and three B6s boiler shells, I ordered some 2-6-0 and 4-4-0 parts (e.g. injectors and tender shells) and some Delta trailing trucks. This was about two months ago, and the order was filled, so I can't say how much stock remains. But the shipping was $14, so I made sure to order enough to justify it.

Where are you guys finding the delta trailing trucks? I can't see them anywhere on the website.

The Model Power website is organized in an odd way. Click on "Press Room" and scroll down to the N Parts List at the bottom right corner. The Delta truck listing is "7397 DELTA TRAILING TRUCK W/WHL $6.98."

Even 
better.  When invading an Nscale layout 40+ foot high gorillas fit the bill nicely...
