Hi all,

While I'm gathering parts for my Spectrum 2-8-0 kit bash to an ICRR 2-8-0, I've been doing some kit building. Here are two photos of an AMB "Iowa division" caboose and one shot of an resing kit ICRR box car which will wait until sprint to be painted.

I am really enjoying building the resin kits ... slow, but very enjoyable.

The roundhouse is a large Walthers kit with 3 more stalls. the tape was to hold the doors closed while I worked on it

The plow is an old Ambroid kit of a B&M plow

Very nice work on the roundhouse and the snowplow! Wish I had room for even a small roundhouse on my layout.

Years ago I built some Ambroid, etc. wood 'craftsman kits'. Once in awhile I see a Labelle or Ambroid come up for auction on eBay. What's your opinion of the detail of those wood kits vs. some of the 'craftsman' style kits available today?

thanks!

yes it was. I'm still having issues with the image size.

 I can post the html tag and the url, but the img here always gets resized. could it be an area of the image problem, too big?If thats the case then this should be small too.

Here's my latest kit ... a Branchline Blueprint REA 1953 built reefer for my ICRR "Land 'O Corn" daily, Chicago to Souix City. Branchline Blueprint kits have enough detail parts to keep any 'fine scale' modeler happy.





... and if you are into detailed underbody/brake rigging ... these kits will satisfy you as well.

only if Frank brings it to the store where he works. He is the pro painter and it's my brothers engine. Stan owns Despatch Junction and runs it with Frank's help. The train wreck was at the next overpass east of the building.
