Back in the day... some N and Nn3 models

Recommended Posts

Very cool, Dave. Are you following a specific prototype or freelancing like I did? The caboose and doodlebug are built pretty much the same as your two cars, just using smaller bits of plastic. The shay is mostly brass with some wood for the end beams, urethane for some of my detail castings and two soft metal castings - the sand dome and the stack, which are the only purchased parts aside from the wheels and couplers. 

The flat car is basswood with my own soft metal details. The tractors are soft metal too, from my own masters. The Mack AC trucks combined urethane castings and photoetched brass that I etched in my basement. That was my first 3d CAD design back in 94.

Oh what fun times those were...
