Does anyone think Bachmann will soon make James in the CGI face?
Probably not as that updated picture doesn't have a new face. But Spencer is missing his front buffers in his picture so you never know.

Hello everyone, I was just checking around the web and found that this shapeways store has snowplows for the engines. There's many different kinds and all the need is paint. Just thought I should share as this is something I know I've been wanting for a while.

https://www.shapeways.com/shops/elsbridge-model-shop?section=&sort=pricelh&page%5Bnumber%5D=1&page%5Blimit%5D=48&page%5Border%5D=asc

Speaking of paint, does anyone know what color the main Blue, Green and Red lining are if I were to want to paint these plows to match the color of the engines? If not then I'll just do what they did on some of the original plows, and get a general color on there and then add a silvery metallic layer kind of like what's seen in this picture.


Edit: So I also found a few videos from the creator of these things, and if attached correctly they apparently actually work. He tested it with ballast it looks like so if you wanted to have them push "snow" out of the way then I'm sure they could. https://mobile.twitter.com/ElsbridgeP/status/920119898331791360/video/1

Interesting project on your hands. I will be glad to see more pictures than process continues.
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.

Stanley has had very minimal speaking roles, and his sales would be very minimal compared to Daisy, but he is a tank engine.

I can't really say anything else about Daisy without rehashing what I've already said before.
Rosie also had very little to no speaking roles until JBS. The she had an episode basically dedicated to her repaint. And unless you've been living under a rock, she got a bachmann model herself.

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.

I can't wait to see Mighty Mac, they we just such an intriguing concept for a character. And I'm sure they'd be the strongest narrow guage engine in terms of the models. This is one of the reasons I'm surprised that during their introduction they primarily hauled ONE coach. Although that birings up another piece of rolling stock we need, their coach, if I remember correctly it was an open coach and that's be really nice for Skarloey to haul a few around the countryside, like some scenic railroads today do. Maybe the shapeway store will make one...

In case anyone wants to add a lamp to Rosie...

https://www.shapeways.com/product/RJEMFBPJ3/oo-ho-lamp-for-bachmann-rosie?optionId=63619965

All it would need is paint and lighting, so if you want to you could make her look like she does now in the show.

This is one of the reasons I'm glad I don't have a permanent model RR, I keep changing which allows me to accommodate narrow gauge. It would be really cool to see a Mighty Mac though. They were always such an interesting concept for a loco. I still haven't gotten any of the Narrow Guage stuff, mainly because the funds aren't there right now. I hope to eventually though because these are just beautiful models.

They have an official image of Rheneas on the store site now.
The picture is right here: http://shop.bachmanntrains.com/index.php?main_page=popup_image&pID=5898

He looks as good as Skarloey in my opinion, I wonder how well he'll run. Only one way to find out I guess.

Hey everybody! How are all of your models? Have any pictures cause Id love to see them! Have anyone made a mighty Mac or Freddie or anything else? Talk to you soon!

    -Chaotic
Nobody has made Mighty Mac yet but there's a kit you could use to make one here: http://www.langley-models.co.uk/acatalog/Online_Catalogue_Locomotive_Body_kits_55.html

You'd just need faces and then whatever the kit tells you. It's from the same place as the Duke models that now two people have made.
As for Freddie, I don't know where you'd find one but to my knowledge nobody has made one yet.

Atleast Philip's role in JBS was so small I didn't even remember he was in it, the only reason I know he was in it was I wanted to make sure I had my facts straight. It seemed like ever since his introduction Philip was treated like a main character, JBS stopped that luckily. Hopefully if he's a background character he'll be more likable.

I'm just saying they're in cgi and Bachmann doesn't do anything anymore unless it's in cgi so there's actually a chance of it happening.

Watch any of the trailers or sneak peeks for JBS. It would appear they're back.

It's just not that popular of a thread right now. I personally don't post on it because the Bachmann models I have are good enough for now, and I don't have the money to modify them. I'm sure if Bachmann doesn't announce Sydney then you'll see a lot of Deisel/Paxton/Arry & Bert repaints for him on there.

We already have this thread, it's just not on the front page.
