I have a revised 1967 Plymouth Fury available.  The proportions are much better than the previous one I offered:



If you had purchased the older version and you want a free replacement, please let me know.

It is great to see you adding more vehicles to your lineup Bryan!  Those are awesome tiny cars!

I have also contemplated creating a photo-catalog of your models (and eventually making a PDF available to everybody). But some of the photos I collected from your posts are not very clear (gray car against gray background) so I put that project on hold.  I think the photos would be much clearer if the raw models were pictured against dark background.

As far as that '76 Plymouth goes, the rake of the A-pillar seems a bit steep to me.  It is that just due to the angle the photo was taken at?





I have one of your earlier models of '67 Fury and looking at the photo I can't tell what is different between it and the improved-proportions one. I guess I would have to compare them side-by-side.

I apologize for my lack of photography skills.  Taking images of gray or black models has always been a problem for me.  I do in fact have a .pdf file as you suggested.  I'll have to update it and attach it to a response.

Regarding the '67 Plymouth, the revised version is much wider compared to the length.  I cut at least three sections out of it to get the length/width closer to being correct.  I'll have to compare the rake of the windshield and the A-pillar with some photographs.  That is actually a problem with a lot of the die cast models that I look at.  What is worse is many also have the side windows raked in towards the top, so that the roof is way too narrow.  I've got a 1/64th model of a 73 Chevy Caprice station wagon that I have put on indefinite hold because of these issues.  There are other models that I have bought, only to get rid of after seeing them in the flesh. These types of errors seem to be more noticeable as the vehicle scale gets smaller.  What may look acceptable in 1/64th will suddenly look silly in 1/160th.

These are awesome...really filling a void in N Scale vehicles. Ever think of doing 50's-70's fire apparatus?  Lots of beautiful machines in that era...

Thanks Brian!  The photos against the beige background seem to work pretty well.

You have been very prolific - that is quite a collection of very desirable vehicles!  Is this a full time hobby for you now or do you still find time for other model RR related stuff?

I'm also curious: roughly how many castings can you pull out of a mold?
You castings are really good and bubble free. Do you pressure-cast?

Yes, these are all pressure cured at 65 psi.  Depending on the shape of the part, I can usually get about 30 pieces out of one mold.  Any castings with bubbles either get repaired or scrapped.  Sometimes the mold can be tweaked a little to avoid bubbles too.  Low humidity helps a lot in this area also.

I retired from my normal job so I can now concentrate on things that I want to do. :)  Hopefully that will include more work on the layout.

In my spare time I will try photographing some against a different background, or go back to the beige one which I had forgotten about.

Any suggestions on a specific model of a fire truck?  They usually have all kinds of free standing details which make things difficult.

On the subject of fire trucks, my preference would be anything in use in Chicago circa 1950-55. During that period, they were re-equipping (I imagine that brand new fire trucks were hard to come by during WWII), so even trucks from the late 30s-41 would be appropriate.  American LaFrance and Mack.

However, if you want to have some fun and create something unusual, there is the Seagrave pumper...

or the REO Speedwagon
