I have used both a modified CMW frame and built my own.  I'm sure one could probably modify the Atlas frame to work.

Here is the only photo of an in process one utilizing the CMW frame.

I have another truck project that I am working on, that I hope to make a kit consisting of a separate frame, separate wheels, cab, bed, etc.  If that turns out okay, I may come back and make a frame, axles, and interior for the F850 some day.

OK, don't hold it in...  We want to know what's next.  CMW 1960 Ford F600? 

If I send you a bunch of Sylvan HO models, can you do those?  The GMC Crackerbox, 860 and Cannonball; GMC 620; and the White 4000 and 9000 are calling to me.  The Mack H63 and IH Emeryville would be fun too. 

I could think of others too, like a 60s era Dodge van and a Bronco and a Jeepster and a Dodge Power Wagon....
Now seeking Pacific NW N scalers to create a Modutrak-style modular club featuring NP's shared mainline between Seattle and Portland. PM me if interested.

Any chance for a Series I E-Type coupe?
Afterall, it is the most beautiful car ever made.

Or maybe a Mark IX, X, or Series I/II/III XJ6?

I doubt that Bryan F. wants to hear from Clare about copying his HO models. I hear that he does check around occasionally.

Clair shouldn't ignore the N Scale market then, IMO.

I've emailed Clair several times about doing these models in N and each time it's been the same response - to paraphrase, it ain't gonna happen, not enough interest.  If Clair wishes to step to the plate now, he can have some of my money.

That doesn't mean that he would be fine with someone using his models.

I get your enthusiasm Bryan. There others of us out here that want to be able to fill some of those gaps in N-scale vehicle production but not at the expense of another model maker.

Unless he gives permission. I have my doubts.

I have NOT been paying attention!! Shame on me. :oops: A 1965 Rambler? Gotta get me one (or more) of those. Life, as we know it, is in the balance. It ain't a wagon... but still... it's a mid 60's Rambler!!

Brian, please stand by. As soon as I rummage through (and remind myself) what I've already gotten from you, I'll let you know what all I need. By the way, do you still have any of those 40's & 50's cars available?

PS: And if you don't already know about it, Auto World has a real nice 1/64th scale 1964 Ford Country Squire wagon. They have a 1972 Chevrolet Estate wagon also... but that's too late for my era.

Hi Mike, the 40s and 50s vehicles are mostly still available, they can be found here:

https://www.therailwire.net/forum/index.php?topic=31890.0

There are one or two that need new molds made.

I do plan on offering a 64 Ford wagon in the future.

I'll be all over that Ford wagon, when you get a round tuit.

I'd like a 65 Ford wagon.I had one that the previous owner had put a 427 Medium riser big block in it. It sure shook up the Camaro/Mustang crowd  around these parts.  :D
