Jerry,

I'm not the ONLY one...Jon Caesar, Marty Jones and Russ Postelwaight have been asking for them ever since I first started whining. However, four customers certainly would not justify any significant manufacturing endeavor. My guess is that most On30 modelers don't particlarly care about such (minor) details.

Jim



After rereading my last post , It came to me that I may have "tramped on some toes", that was NOT my intent.

"Most On30" as was stated, does in fact cover a lot of us normal, struggling to improve our skills at modeling, even though "most On30" modelers (myself included) started modeling in On30 so we weren't obligated to tighten the very last NBW, or cut the chain one link to short (or too many), and some of us will even forget to model that flea behind old Rover's ear.....for this I am sad.
This is "Model Railroading".....If you want "prototype", well, there are other forums for that.

That was my intent.....this is what I think...

Bill

In an attempt to get this thread back on subject I have attached 2 photos of the sides and ends for 3 outside frame boxcars.

My models are in 3/4 inch scale and the wood is cut from from popular planks that were cutoffs from the sawmill.

Thanks for the compliments.

I need to take more photos as I am the point of putting the second body on the frame.

Hi Ron...

The compliments are well deserved and you have mine as well. I'm so happy to see your excellent progress on this build. Your efforts truly transcends scale and gauge.

Please keep the pictures coming...

I would love to see these in person. They must be huge! When you get a full box car fleshed out, would you be so kind as to take a picture of it with your mug in the act so we can get a sense of scale?

Thanks,

Richard

Bill,
Not sure what you mean, you did seem a bit annoyed, not sure why. Quite a few of us cut our teeth on On3 where just about every kit, loco and detail part was almost exact prototype. I suppose more than a few of us continue to want [create] products to make our On30 models as close to prototypical in appearance i.e. having the brake shoes correctly positioned behind the wheels. I believe when Richard started this thread he was outlining his techniques for fine scale model building in On30. This subject has drawn the interest of fine scale modelers such as Jim and Jerry and others to follow along and share their thoughts.

Bit out of inks on my printer, and still in the fast economic mode, but I do think printing on thin veneer works. Gave it a A/I first and after that a rough coat of off white acrylics..



closer look with a ruler along, sorry it's metric guys !!



Tom if you like where I'm going I can print the roadnumbers out and send them to you..higher resolution for shure

Martin,

Your work looks very good to me. I would need letters and numbers for the sides and numbers for the ends of the cars.

I think the lettering is great for a weathered car.

What did you do to make the material go through the printer besides have a printer with a straight printing path?
