Hello To All:

Here is a photo of my new D. Fusit Gunpowder Wagons.
I used Woodland Scenics dry transfer lettering applied one letter at a time.
I was going for an irregular look to resemble the original hand lettering.

I have also received most of the parts I need to start the assembly of my Mighty Mac loco which interestingly uses a Bachmann GP-50 loco as the power chassis.

Enjoy,
Grandpuff

Hey grand puff! The D. Fusit wagon looks great. What faces are you planning to use for Mighty Mac?

Hi Griffin:

I hope to use faces off of a Mighty Mac toy. I will not know until it arrives on Monday if they will be the right size.

I also have brass name plates ordered from Narrow Planet even though the Thomas Mighty Mac did not have them the original  basis loco did.

I was able to correct the photo link in my message above so the photo is displayed now.

The gun powder wagons look amazing grandpuff. I can't wait to see Mighty Mac. You're work with detailing these models is amazing. Also, I'm glad to see that the link I posted has proved useful to fellow modelers. I look forward to seeing Skarloey, Rheneas and Duke running around with the Shays and Cab-forwards I see in some of your pictures.

A Small Railroad for All Locomotives, well except for those Amtrak locos that never get anyone to their destination on time.

Hello again to All:

As I promised this is my first installment of progress in the assembly of my OO9 or HOn30 Mighty Mac locomotive using parts from various suppliers in the UK. The first photo shows Thomas and Mighty Mac from the TV Series for reference. The second photo shows progress so far to cleaning up the loco castings which has taken about a week.

I now have the paint, gold, red, and yellow 1/16 stripping tape, hand rail stantions, and the Bachmann N scale GP-50 loco which will be used for the mechanism after removing the side frames and drilling the wheels for the side and driving rods.

I will be posting additional progress photos as the work progresses.

I am not sure why my photos from Flikr are not appearing as they should and will investigate.
In the mean time you can click on the links.

Anyone know what I am doing incorrectly?

Enjoy,
Grandpuff

Indeed! This seems like a lovely project, I hope the face looks better on the model that the TnP one. I doubt they'd fit but I have an old Tomy Mighty Mac and I love those faces.
Just a thought.
Can't wait to see your further progress.

As well, I just saw that the Elsbridge Shop has Water Towers and Hoppers for the Narrow Gauge engine, in case anyone's looking.

Best of luck on the Mighty Mac project Granpuff.  The decals you added to your gunpowder wagons look really nice and I'm glad to see you continue to make great progress!

Thank you Chaz. I will post some more progress photos of Mighty Mac as soon as I can figure out why my Flikr photos are not posting correctly. My previous Flikr photos of my narrow gauge coaches and brake van along with my D. Fusit Gunpowder wagons posted just fine.

Any ideas what the problem may be anyone?
