This is the prototype for a new model coming out of the historic Central Pacific 4-4-0, the Jupiter. The model is coming out in 1/25 scale.






This is handpainted at this point. The loco will be coming out in kit form.



I'm a big fan of 4-4-0s and I'm sure I'll spend the money to get this one. It should be a real beauty in factory colors!




I don't expect to see a lot of the people here buying one. It won't be that expensive (not sure on the price yet), it's just that it is a kit.... a paper kit. Just thought you might like to see what kind of stuff the guys in that hobby are up to. Sure wish the largescale manufacturers would put out a few standard gauge 4-4-0s !

Mr Walas,

I do know of someone who has used one of the Polish Paper kits as templates for a metal model.
But I of course would never do that....

Here's a paper model website that I hang around a fair bit. Good guys;
http://www.papermodelers.com/
Here's where I get most of my paper models from. Very good prices overall and the very best service;
http://www.papermodelstore.com/
There are a lot of free paper models available on the internet. Not enough train models, but the spectrum of subjects is pretty amazing.
Here's one of the more popular paper model blogs;

And if you want stuff from movies and such, this is a good one;

There's a ton of stuff out there and a lot of it can be adapted to our train stuff. There's a good selection of maps, signs, boxes and more in 1/24 that are great detail pieces here;

Paper. Just one more resource in largescale!
