And yeah, ok - I would be feeling guilty about soaking up bandwith with repetitious photos, but then most OGR participants repeat photos routinely, often multiple times in the same thread! (ugh)

The Lobaugh Mountain is a prewar kit, available in SP or MoPac.  I have never seen the MoPac, but have heard that they exist.  Mine vary from the MT-1 configuration with cab over the firebox to the MT4 with cab behind the staybolts, and at least one has the very difficult to make "skyline casing."

This one is my first - very expensive.  Tender is a combo - Lobaugh sides and Adams castings.

This one from Art Haelig - Max Grey tender, and cab back behind the firebox stays. Color scheme from Bob Church's fine book.

Skyline casing and genuine Lobaugh tender.  Unpowered.  My paint.  Well, all of it is my work.

This one was a gift from Hal Sharkey - he had finished the front, and I needed to do the back - cab, running boards, etc.  Wood block tender (Yes, I have plenty of spare Adams tenders)

4314 - 2

And finally, the latest from a very expensive kit - That is a scratch tender.  I think that since this photo, all piping has been added, along with handrails etc.

I mention the Adams tender - I find the casting sets in various conditions, and press my own sides.  Very pleased with the outcome.  They are close to 17/64 scale, while the Lobaugh variant is closer to 1/4" scale.

I have several other Mountain types - a Seaboard, several All Nation, one Max Gray, a Scalecraft, and a convertible ATSF, which is right now a 2-10-2, but can be converted back with three screws!  I have to have better photos of my Adams tenders, but this will have to do for now.

Let me sneak this in - I have three candidates for our MTJ process, and fear I have forgotten a few.  The process is semi-complex, because of a "bot" problem.  Remind me if you do not hear something by November.

Bob,

Impressive work. I always enjoy your photos and models. Thanks.
