Two new additions:
Stewart Baldwin AS16, remotored, retrucked.
Mantua F7A shell on Athearn clone chassis.
I try ti avoid using anything that requires the use of razors or sharp blades. Due to lack of feeling in my hands I can get a really bad cut and...
Well this week I'm working on my first big scratchbuild since 2003. A concrete grain elevator. Don't ask why, I just felt like building one. So...
One of my junkbox rebuilds, a patched GP9F (F = Frankenstein) made up of parts from Walthers, Front Range, Proto, Athearn, PPW.

A few recent remotor projects:
An Atlas 70's era GP40 chassis with Proto motor and Proto/Athearn shafts.
An Atlas 70's era FP7 chassis...
It was a busy week.
