How’bout a Mack bashed from a RADIO?


No kiddin’.. I bought a model of a CP Huntington of Evilbay that was advertised in the G scale section, what they didn’t say was while it was actually somewhere close to 1/32 scale it was a static model and on top of that a really old, very old, am/fm radio! The domes were the knobs and the bunker held the batteries. Well I mulled it over for a while, then tore it apart (sorry, no before pics) to see what parts I could salvage from it, after drawing a couple sketches I eventually hit on a bash using whats simply become my favorite large scale engine, a Mack, I had one from Gold Coast, only one he had at the time was a clear one, which I carved up and got:



I kept the interior simple, as it’s just a fun project



After a while I finally got around to painting it, weathering looks more subtle in person, flash tends to over emphisis it.

That looks great Vic! Now you can play trains and listen to your favorite tunes at the same time. Keep up the good work.
