Sorry Aristo


I recieved my doodlebug set, I placed the coach in the consist, then opened up the motor car because a few windows had come loss, no problem to repair.
then I thought, how often will I really run this, then woow, some of the parts can be used to make an obs car. Or a car that had been in a wreck and rebuilt.



I love the golden rule.
I did find that it had over sized wheels to match the powered wheels so i replaced them and the car sat level and at Kadee heigth.
More photos later.
The motor block may go into my 250 crane not yet finished.


The cab maybe sent off to Jerry Barns and see what he comes up with,,,cause hes one of,,"them" eggy car lovers.

I used the table saw very carefully to cut this and the angles worked fine.
This is for airconditioning in my private care.

Marty, what are you trying to model? Looks like an observation platform on the end of a combine?

You just got too many secretes! This and the mystery live steamer!

Modeling a free lace combine that had been in a wreck, yet repainted and rebuilt by my company, NTC to be used to haul company heads and loaded with their G trains to travel around sharing the hobby.

well I'm very happy with the paint match and the ac vent cover, very clean lines.
But I hate the rear roof.

I may switch the obs end for the other end so it looks better and the obs will be at the end when going forwards.

If you're willing to try resin casting, you could make a mold of the "good" end of the roof, then cast another for the other end. You might even be able to cast it in place around what you already have.
