Three posts in November, if you include slicing my finger

This is an equipment issue, a bulldozer and machine shop equipment. The dozer is Woodland Scenics white metal kit (pewter with some lead in it). I really like the white metal kits, and I am working on a trailer to haul this. Should have it ready to show in the next entry.

Next we have some machine shop equipment. Speaking of machine shop equipment, I sold my 9x42 South Bend metal lathe last week. I had it for 35 years, and almost never used it.

I picked up this HO scale machine shop equipment with some other stuff on ebay. This was just a bonus. Painted them equipment gray, and did a little highlighting. Now I have to build a building to go around the machines

Next time I will an HON30 flat car or two, and Kansas City, Fort Smith and Gulf caboose.

Open Loads for HO flat cars and trucks

I really like open loads. They really add interest and texture to the scene. Here are several pictures of open loads I have crated or palletized for open loads. The loads themselves are just pieces of junk I had laying around.

Gotta put some straps on this one.

Thanks for looking. Next time a bulldozer and some machine shop equipment.

Hobby Knife Safety

A picture is worth a thousand words, and I ain't much for writing anyhow.
