Jarrell's Show Me Something: August 2019
Posted by Harrison on Thursday, August 01, 2019 7:57 AM

Welcome to the August 2019

 

"Show Me Something"

 

Thread 

Dedicated to the originator, Jarrell

 


  

This is a place where forum members can post their photographs featuring a view of a "requested" scene or object.

 

If you show the item requested you can then make a request of your own, or choose to stay with the current request. 

After 24 hours, the same rules apply, or you can post a new photo of your choosing and make a new request. Your photos should be of models only, not a "real-life" scene. It's all about having fun! Let's see those photos!

All photographs should be original photographs taken my the person that posts them. If the model work is not your own, please give credit to the person or group that made the models. 


The last request was made by Ed:

Another heavy-industry scene, please.

I don't know how modern you wanted, but this should fill the bill. It was seen on the store layout at Ready-To-Roll trains in Miami, Florida.

Show me another SD-40 please.

I hope this is enough track to meet your request. This scene is on the Athens Bend Track groups N-Trak layout.

Show me a scene with only one track passing through it.

...Show me a bulkhead flatcar

This is an Athearn 50' flatcar, with the original floor and underframe removed and replaced with a new subfloor of .060" sheet styrene.  This allowed the car to sit more prototypically-lower on its trucks.  I also added a custom-cast lead weight to improve its tracking abilities...

...then added bulkhead ends from Walther's 53' GSC flatcar.  The wooden deck was added to use-up my supply of scale stripwood...

Here's an ex-Pennsy RPO, built from an undecorated Walthers kit...

I de-Pennsy-fied it by altering the porthole-style windows in the doors into rectangular ones.  Paint is SMP Accupaint, while the lettering was done with C-D-S dry transfers from an alphabet set.

...To the other end of the train... Please show me any observation car.

Here's a model of one of CNR's "Mountain Observations", built for a friend...

Built from a Rivarossi coach, the car's length is very close to that of the real ones.  I used the roof from a Rivarossi RPO.  Paint is from Pollyscale and SMP, with CNR lettering done with C-D-S dry transfers.  The brass handrails at the steps are from SS Ltd.

Here is a Kato Business car. ... The prototype for this car is a Burlington business car. Kato painted it for other roads too, but Burlington is the corect one. 

Plase show the rear end of any train.
