Just photographed this model for another forum, thought I'd share it here too:











This is one of the Monogram static plastic models of years gone by. I think it has been released by several different firms since. Cost me all of $4.00 at the time - cheap thrills!

I modeled it as a steam engine being dismantled, with pieces cut out of the cab and tender. I removed the coal load and simulated the stoker and coal inside, added bracing inside. Hatches were opened on the tender.

Lots of fun at the time!

This model was in Mainline Modeler more years ago than I would rather remember!

Very nicely done, Bob.

Chuck mentioned a diorama setting. Didn't you use this in a rip track or scrap yard diorama several years back? Or am I thinking of something/someone else?

Hi Bob:

Nicely done. Very credible. It will look good on the razor blade line.

Great idea, great execution! Someday I'll flatter you by copying that idea!

I assumed everyone would know the Monogram model was indeed HO scale. I did pose the engine in a diorama, with a crane removing pieces and lots of junk around. Can't remember if that photo was in Mainline Modeler or Walthers catalogs or both. With over 800 photo published so far, I can't remember them all!

Thanks for the comments!

Here are some proto pix for you.





Part of a scrap yard.

I almost bought the same model for $35 at our train show 2 years ago. At the time I thought it was steep, but now I wish I had shelled out the cash. Perfect model for a service facility.

I really like how you have done yours up.

That's some terrific modeling. Very nice weathering and I would have never guessed is was a plastic kit.

Gidday Gang,
Bob thanks for sharing this one, I'll also copy your idea one day.
I don't know if the Dapol range of kits (used to be AirFix) are available stateside but they have cheap styrene loco's that one could use for a scene such as this, trouble is it's British outline locos but cheap enough.


8 pound = @ $6 U.S.


6 odd pound
The Pug could certainly be easily bashed into a sortaporta
