Sunday was a great one. I got to meet some new folks, and chat with some other "narrow" minded guys, and show them the first casts of the Maine Frame in HOn30. All comments were very positive, and I'm excited to release them soon!
The big haul of the day was a quartet of koppels from Minitrains at pennies on the dollar! So, I decided to see what happens when you put a razor saw to them, and add some left over parts from the F&C and Forney builds. I'm not looking for a particular prototype, just a plausible tank loco, that isn't so Germanic looking. The cab fits pretty well, and I cut up a boiler, which fits pretty well also. I'll scab on some sheet styrene to fatten the tanks up, and go from there.
What are you waiting for?
Go build something awesome!
