    Some HO from me for a change. These are two Walthers UP cars that I modified for a friend to resemble the prototype cars that he owns. He named them after his parents.

    I have recently finished a conversion of Walthers, Wallschlager Motors, built-up. It is now a motorcycle shop. This is the interior I built with the building shell removed. I have a parts and service counter, leather jackets, Jason and Milsco saddlebags, shirts and jeans, 7 new motorcycles and LED lighting.

    You always need a spare tire, right? One can always wear it around their waste while they ride.

    Man Candy!! I don't think anyone around (at least on this board) is doing better detail/interior work than you. It's really pretty amazing. N Scale right?

    Eastern Car Works ACF Covered Hopper, painted black and lettered with Oddballs Decals.

    Eastern Car Works Airslide Covered Hopper, painted with Floquil Primer and lettered with Mark Vaughn Decals. The NYC leased these cars from General American for flour service and they were never on the NYC roster. Mark Vaughn made these decals from a picture in a sales flyer from 1962.

    [​IMG]

    Chicago Freight car purchased these Bethlehem 4462 Covered Hoppers and leased them to the Ann Arbor in 1964, would have been right after the Wabash sold the Ann Arbor to the DT&I accounting for the compass herald. Using a Walther 4427 as a standin for the Bethlehem car.

    Thanks for looking!

    I haven't posted here in a while. Things have settled down a bit and I have a bit more time now. Here is what I have been working on for the HO layout I help out on...

    It is a detail/rebuild of a Cornerstone Worthington Hotel building. It now has full interior and lighting on both floors.

    Finally the master suite with table lamps.

    There is a bank residing in the left building space but none of the pictures of the counter and vault came out well enough to post. Still desiding on a name and signage for both business.

    Great job, Tony. Gives me some ideas for my N-scale hotel lobby, which I keep putting off.
