My scratch-built and modified projects. Some projects were fairly simple and straight forward and others required major work and or repaints.

CNR #47 4-6-4T Hudson:

Original Post

     You're far too modest with your postings Daniel .

    The link to all of the various modeling you've done (another post) kept me occupied for about 2 hours the other day, as not too many folks detail autos that deeply, or that well. And again later, another 2.5 hours while one of the 20 year olds living here poured over it and we talked about various things that we both liked. I'd seen some of it before, but there's enough there for it to all seem like new, each visit. The "reversed build" that occurs from the date/time sorting, actually makes it just that much more interesting.

   If you remember and have a minute, drop me an email when you update, or get it all into one spot, or "whatever"....please

(that Orc boats sail's raw simplicity is still my fav., lol )

Thank you Daniel

Daniel

What I really intended for my first reply was;

When you are done with the 4-6-4T, let me know. 

But sometimes these kind of responses can be taken out of context or misinterpreted.

Anyway, again I like what you have done.

Great models, Daniel. I also covet that 4-6-4T!

Also, did H.P. Lovecraft work for the PRR at one time?  Great imaginative exercise there.

I also from time to time do some rather mundane repair jobs: a stock-car with a broken sill and missing a door. Repairs made and new door fabricated.

A busted up work-caboose that needed some TLC:

This CNR diesel had a broken 'plow' (I still have not fixed the number board!).

Thanks for the interest guys. Okay, I admit I had to google Lovecraft!

I thought I would add these into this thread, just to get them in one place. DSC05675DSC05676DSC05430 [1)DSC05433

CPA and CPB 16-5s cobbled together from Rivarossi C-liners and Williams PAs. Also the FP7A and F7B set made from MTH F3s. Lots of passenger (or freight) power!

I made a B unit for 9171. This one is unpowered so the tether is just for show.The paint is more of a 'dark orange' But phone cameras being what they are... Made from the last of the F3 ABBA unit.

Very nice work!  How did you make the grills for the C liners?

Hi Tom. Most of the 'grill' is styrene pattern sheet with some judicious painting. The under fan sections are    brass rod.DSC05807

A Lionel EMD F7-B rehashed into a GMD F9-B for CNR passenger service. There were still a few connections  and hoses to add when these pics were taken.DSC05818DSC05819DSC05820DSC05821DSC05822

A Lionel 736 conversion to a Canadian National U-1-b Mountain #6035 along with her tender which this time is a re-build rather than totally scratch built. This time I managed with a little fudging to keep the whistle.DSC05824DSC05825DSC05826DSC05829DSC05830DSC05832

A representation of  one of four Train Masters built for the Canadian Pacific with two steam generators under the wide short-hood. As usual the beginning was to fix the pilots and then cobbling the specific details.DSC05834DSC05835DSC05836

Daniel,

Fantastic Conversions. I especially love the Train Master, it looks beautiful! 

Also, a possible idea for your Ork train (I assume you are a fan of Warhammer). What if you made a boxcar with a little sound system that played Ork-ie quotes? The top three that come to mind:
'Waaaaggghhhh"    "Red makes da train go faster"     "Orkz iz da best"

 

Your modeling skills are outstanding!

Bryce

I thank all the folks that have viewed my efforts and made comments, you are all too kind.

I have re-built 6153 and back-dated her to more closely resemble her working days before she was used for a few fan trips. She now also is a better fit with the newly added 6035 and some of the newer diesels that I have running.             IMG_2857IMG_2875

Nice job on 6153! I tried the 9 deg. angle logo on my 2-8-2 tender, but somehow the lines of the tender just made it look cock-eyed. I just went with the straight logo. I wonder if CN had the same thoughts, since somes is straight and somes is squint...

Thanks for the comments. I just banged the logo on there by eye. I previously used the round logo but earlier pics show the wafer so I changed it. I don't know if there was a method to their madness, maybe I'll ask on a facebook group why the differences.
