FOS Scale January HO Kit of the Month Build
Posted by darrylhuffman On 01/15/2019 At 12:19:03 AM
FOS Scale has started a subscriber service which provides the builder a new kit each month.

The first kit in the series is DelRito's Meat Products. This is a small false front building which makes into a nice meat market such as would be found in any old town. In fact, you can still find specialty shops like this in many towns today. So this will fit into any HO layout.

Doug Foscale's kits feature excellent laser cut walls and detail parts. Doug's methods of painting and weathering are easy and give good results.



This nice little kit should take about a week of one or two hour evenings to build. Most of the time will be spent letting the glue bonds set.


Mini Drill press question
Posted by johneye On 01/12/2019 At 2:13:58 PM
Been thinking about investing in a mini drill press for some time, and I noticed that Micro Mark has a pretty good power tool sale going on now. Anyone familiar with their drill presses? Thoughts or recommendations requested. Thanks! PS if this is the wrong spot for this post feel free to move/delete.
2019 Tribute Challenge
Posted by Dutchman On 01/11/2019 At 11:38:57 AM
This is our prime modeling time in the northern hemisphere, and as usual, we will have a group challenge. This year we will make it a tribute to two of our recently lost friends: Frederic Testard and Chester Fesmire.

Chester was a woodworker by trade and lived in Maine. Frederic was a math professor and lived in France. Chester enjoyed the hobby by focusing on vehicle modeling, and Frederic loved scratch building and scenery work. Both produced unbelievably realistic models. Both were masters at weathering.

As is my usual approach on these challenges, I will try to keep the focus broad enough to attract a good number of participants. I we make the focus too restrictive, experience shows that participation is lower.

So, feel free to (1) scratch build a model as Frederic so often did. If you build a model from a kit (2), do what both Frederic and Chester did, and make it your own by modifying it, adding to it, weathering it, and placing it in a detailed scene. A third (3) option would be to build a vehicle model. Once again, feel free to make modifications, weather the model, and include it in a scene. Both Chester and Frederic often did. One thing that I didn't mention about Chester's modeling is that he made a few 'photo sets' in which to photograph his vehicle models. These 'sets' included wonderfully detailed interiors.

So please join the challenge. I have given you three options, but there are many more that can be inspired by the modeling of these to departed friends.

The challenge will begin now and will run thru Monday, April 15, 2019

In the next post I will include an array of photos from both Frederic and Chester to give you some more inspiration.
O Scale Bay Windows and Roof Trim
Posted by Keeper On 01/06/2019 At 4:36:33 PM
Any recommendations on where I can find prefabricated bay windows in O Scale? I searched the Grandt Line site (understanding they've been sold to the San Juan Model Company), but I didn't find a full bay window, just individual windows than can be combined in a constructed bay window frame (3723 + 3729).

Also, I'm looking for cured dental trim to go on the inside of an arched gable that will be the face of a storefront. I can find a couple triangular trim details, but nothing that is curved.
Bar Mills Gas Station at Shady Grove
Posted by Glen Haasdyk On 01/05/2019 At 7:44:34 PM
Starting another new structure for the addition:



The Gas Station at shady grove. it's pretty small, only about 2 X 3" including the canopy. I was originally going to change the station's name but then I found that Texaco was in Canada so I guess I can keep it.

Work on South River Modelworks Layout
Posted by southriv On 12/28/2018 At 2:10:09 PM
Hi Everyone, Just a quick post to let everyone know that as I have REALLY settled into retirement I've finally (within the last year +) have been working on my layout on a regular basis. As I take in the net effect of retirement on my daily schedule (and I have other hobbies) I wonder how I ever had time to run a business!

I have links to my Flickr slide shows you can access on my website, but the important one is here:

https://www.flickr.com/photos/103194951@N02/sets/72157683576799481

...If you are already familiar with this slide show and haven't seen it in a while I would recommend scrolling to the end and working back as I am now trying to post updates at least once a month. I am really done commercially, so with what little spare time I have left (again, how did that happen?) I'll be exploring more ways to participate by sharing. I'm not to the FSM level (how George models so well that fast is beyond me) but hope to provide some entertainment.

Best to all, Bob

Hi Again!
Well I've gone and done it, just sent in my registration. Been reading for a couple of months now. By far the best forum I've found on the net.

I live in Etobicoke (Toronto ) .

I model in N-Scale , the Pere Marquette Railway as it appeared in the fall of 1949 . The locale is South-Western Ontario . I have started at the fishing village/coal port of Erieau on the North Shore of Lake Erie .

Research is of prime importance and EVERYTHING is and will be scratch built !

DCC Digitrax will be used and my Consolidations will hopefully soon be sound equipped .

Ian

I found this site through a link from RMWeb the UK site. Incredibly high standards of modelling - I would like to know if I have permission to use some of the photography on my inspirations page - for inspiration of course!!!
