    A little 1:8 scale (7 1/2" gauge on the tracks) from Willow Creek at Antique Powerland in Brooks. We're busily gearing up for Steam-Up 2012, folks - last weekend in July, first weekend in August.

    Here's a recent photo of two very old projects. I custom painted both of these about 15 years ago. The E Unit is obviously a fantasy scheme.

    The repair manuals on the counter are a nice touch and shows experience.

    Well, I finally completed the cars I have been working on all week.


    This is an Front Range 50' Boxcar which is used to replicate an Evans 50' Boxcar, substituted a Detail Associates 10' Superior Door and extended the door tracks to match. Painted with Floquil B&M Blue and Black Paint and lettered with Herald King Decals.


    This is an Athearn 50' PC&F RBL w/14' Door, used A-Line Sill Steps in place of the plastic steps, painted with Floquil Tuscan Red Paint and lettered with Herald King Decals.


    This is a MDC - FMC 5277CF Boxcar, painted with Floquil B&M Blue and Black paint, lettered with Microscale Decals. This car was used in paper service.

    Thanks for looking!

    Nice! That counter detail looks just like so many shops I have known, even mine.

    How did you do those shelf details? It is a photo?
