On to model railroading, there is never enough time for model railroading.
I built this from a Funaro and Camerlengo kit. Gee, I hope I spelled that right, but then I don't care enough to look it up. It was a resin kit that was warped and I spent a lot of time clamping, applying heat, clamping in another direction, actually weeks of playing around with it.
In the end, I finally got it straight, applied Scalecoat paint, and decals.
Fredonia Linseed Oil Works

One the neat industries I ran across in my research was the Fredonia Linseed Oil Works.ever would have though of Flaxseed being grown in Kansas. Also, back in the first half of the 20th century, Soybeans was a new crop. I took the picture below at the Fredonia historical society...they thought I was nuts.
I made my own rendetion of the huckster that was used to sell the farmers on growing Flaxseed and Soybeans using the Athearn Huckster model. I printed out the signs and the side panels showing the types of Flaxseed.
This is a Jordan styrene and metal kit. They are excellent kits, great detail, and a little fragile. The fenders and body sides are made from heavy aluminum foil. Really makes a good looking model.
