"Show something kit bashed."

Bachmann's Frankford Junction Kit considerably modified for the BRVRR's Black River Station.

More modified or kit bashed buildings, cars, or locos, please.

Perfect.  It's the small things in life that make me happy.  Someone I know indirectly sure did a good job of doing that.  This kind gesture will be returned.

More of the same please. Or custom-made like this.

Two HOn30 flatcars; the tractor and seed drill loads had scratch built blocking and the seed drill had to be slightly kitbashed to make it fit on the narrow car

Show me some more kitbashing

Show me some more kitbashing

This is an Athearn Blue Box boxcar, with ends and doors from Tichy, a Viking roof from Des Plaines Hobbies, a modified underbody from Central Valley, and door tracks and running boards built-up, piece-by-piece, from Evergreen strip styrene.  The trucks are Walthers (formerly LifeLike Proto2000) National B-1s. 
I built eight of them, all with about 6"(HO) removed from just below the original strip of rivets at the car's eaves....

The project is covered STARTING HERE, and continues for a number of pages.  It's also preceded by four pages of upgrades to various commonly-available freight cars.  Decently detailed cars, don't have to cost an arm and a leg (or two).

Show me another kitbash or scratchbuild, please.

Oh, there are so many! Like picking a favorite child or grandchild.

Well, this one was built from a kit (AMB) and I like the work-a-day look of these NYC wood cabooses:

This transfer caboose is my favorite, for right now. It is a Lambert brass model of a KCS prototype. I have an Overland "OSB caboose" in the paint shop right now that will probably be my new favorite when it is completed.

Show me any boxcar with a multicolor paint job.

Rule 1: This is my railroad.

Rule 2: I make the rules.

Rule 3: Illuminating discussion of prototype history, equipment and operating practices is always welcome, but in the event of visitor-perceived anacronisms, detail descrepancies or operating errors, consult RULE 1!

Not to worry!  That big meow-meow just gobbled down 10 cans of Purina.  She's just visiting Kevin's carpet pasture to go poopy in the corner.  Your moo-moo's are safe today, Kevin.
