Well Dave was right although I didn’t realize it myselfe at the time. Daniel and I made a trade, Scale craft K4 and some cars for the Erector Hudson. This forum really is great. Neither of us mentioned $$ once. It was simple, Daniel saw my interest in it and offered it up. I remembered he had mentioned he’d like to find a Scalecraft K4 and so I offered one back and the deal was done simple as that. Here it is after I opened it up. It’s a big project to be sure, but man is it cool. 😁 we new it was missing a few parts, a big one is the firebox wrapper but I think I can make one from brass or sheet metal for now. I may start a thread for this since I’ve never seen one on here as well. Couldn’t happen without Daniel’s generosity, I hope we can meet some day face to face. I promiss I’ll get the K4 in shape and over to you as quickly as I can.
Nice to see it at home now and very pleased you like it. Shipping has been fast, just a week to arrive from France to USA is fine.
You will have a lot of work to do on that baby but i think it is one more great project.... It will need some time to do it but it is relatively simple i think. Please post a trade it would be great to see the progress on the restoration.
Now ...... you will have to talk to Dave about his commission, 0+0 = 0 No money, sorry for you.
For the K4, no urgency at all i have also some projects running, more or less fast ....
Enjoy the return in your country of that hudson, and next trip in USA maybe i will do a visit...
All my best wishes, Daniel
