Ok, seeing as how it has gotten a little quiet in here, I'll post a few pictures of On30 projects that myself and my step-father-in-law have been working on. We'll start with mine, as my time has also been taken up working on bookcases for my office/train room. I took a 1/43rd scale 1934 Ford oil delivery truck and converted it to an On30 railcar. This will ultimately be repainted and detailed as a quick-response firetruck/engine water delivery vehicle for my fictional railroad the Dragon Mountain Logging Co. After all, with all the dry weather, those geared lokies are always setting off brush fires. http://www.frontiernet.net/~blkbear/Trains/DCP_1580.JPG I took one of the two power trucks from an older-style Bachmann Ho Scale 44-tonner, plus a few parts I had laying around in my parts bin. i was originally going to use some MDC/Roundhouse spoked front wheels, but the flanges were so sharp they kept riding up out of the turn-outs. The smaller wheels I have now look better, and lower the front of the truck. Now on to my step-father-in-law's stuff. The first is the beginnings of an On30 railcar using parts from a Gnomy truck and Trolley. Plus a spare Precision Scale D&RG K-27 plow. http://www.frontiernet.net/~blkbear/Trains/DCP_1565.JPG Next up is an On30 railcar bashed from a Bachmann On30 Combine, parts from an Adirondack Car & Foundry kit (the front windows & Grill), and the "guts" from a Precision Craft Galloping Goose. This gives the wonderful engine sounds of one of those old Geese, as well as DCC. http://www.frontiernet.net/~blkbear/Trains/DCP_1583.JPG And, just to show I've not been totally bored... HEre is one of the bookcases I built for my office. It was built to tuck nicely behind the door, and between the Ho Scale layout and the wall. Above is the On30 around-the-room layout. http://www.frontiernet.net/~blkbear/Home/After.jpg Michael P.S. - Now let's see some modeling out there!
