    This is my first post. I work with Corel for my models. I don't do 2d, only 3d. I've been working on a GP40-2 in Western Maryland paint for about a year now. The prototype build will be HO, but I think I'll do the final in O scale to show more detail. If anyone is interested in this model, I can write instructions as I go. I'll try to post some pics when I get home. (I travel a lot) Since I live in the USA, does anyone on here model American Trains?

    Cool site btw. I've looked for a long time to find a paper train site!!

    btw, the GP40 is about 60% completed.

    Hey, some of us model pretty much anything!! As a dedicated (addicted?) HO model railroader, I use paper models on the layout, hang paper scale airplanes from my office ceiling, and put paper model ships on my walls.

    Of course, you can't always find them behind or under the piles of yarn my knitter wife has piled all over the house, but that's hobbies for ya.

    Welcome! In what part of the old YOU ESS AiY are you living?

    No worries,

    Tama777,
    I too will follow with great interest. I would love to see American streamliners from the 30's or learn how to design them on the computer. I found some interesting micromodels of U.S. loco's- found plenty of european loco's - some free in 1:45 & 1:38. Ordered an O gauge paper engine from oldtymes - should be here any day.

    Thanks for the replies!

    I live near Pittsburgh Pennsylvania. And yes, I sure will upload some pics for everyone. Give me a day or two to get them up. Been away for a few weeks, so I gotta catch up at home first.
