Shapeways DD35 shells, in progress. Bestine soaks should be done by tomorrow, defuzzing to commence shortly thereafter. Artwork by James Norris over on TB. The attention to detail is incredible, the FUD process... well, it is what it is. It's going to take some effort to get these reasonably smooth.

DKS really like the looks of that first building, WOW!
I finally have a completed project to show. At Trainfest, Robert Z from Madison saw my Milwaukee Road SD 40-2's with shortened fuel tanks and asked me if I would give his 5 units the treatment. Well, due in part to the beautiful midwest winter we are having, I finally got them done today. In addition to chopping the frame and tanks down to the appropriate 3200G size, they also got Atlas beacons, and some J&J all weather windows. They will be heading up to his railroad on Sunday and making their debut at the Mad City Model railroad show in Madison in a few weeks.
first pic shows the splices on the tank


second pic shows the chopped tanks with a 4000G one for comparison


cabs lined up with all weather windows (engineers side only)

Now to apply the same treatment to the Cobo Shops Milwaukee Bicentennial unit, along with a few thinks I've learned from these pages

This isn’t something I worked on this week, not by a long shot, but I realized a lot of these photos were never posted before.

I decided I wanted to scratch build a piece of rolling stock.  There are tons of details parts in HO, so I chose an HOn3 D&RGW flat car.  I found scale plans, and the prototype for the flatcar I built runs on the Cumbres & Toltec.  The 6200 class is a steel sided, wooden framed car.  I simulated the steel sides with styrene.

Erik, that's exquisite work, not to mention the detail and painting on the little guy with the red jacket. 
Cheers

Not setting the world on fire with my output lately, but some cricket on the TV has kept me inside, so I've actually done something.

My WNY&P C-630M has a new stack, radiator walkway and some Archer louvres for the engine air intakes.  Still trying to Dofascorise the GE trucks, not sure if it's a happening thing.

On the workbench is a project I need to finish within 8 months.  Morristown & Erie C-424's 18 & 19 have their 50th birthday in September, so I want to have mine completed before we travel to Morristown.  I'm rebuilding the 18 that I made 15 years ago, and building a new 19.  I'll post progress in another few months!!!

Cheers
Steve

Judging from that pallet, he looks to be selling a lot of stock at the show!

Seriously SEXY turn of the century building here David!
What's the base of it - the Kibri factory? Nice revamp of it if so.

Worked on my salvage yard this week. Adding more details. The Flow of shred from the conveyor really added to the scene.




Car crusher also helped............

Not often you see a detail like that modelled but it really adds a lot of realism to the overall scene 8)
