    ARISTO NAPA VALLEY FA

    Think I would see how you paid, if with paypal and business not family and friend I would complain and if nothing else give the seller an ear full!!!

    ARISTO NAPA VALLEY FA

    Forgot to mention in the previous post, the circuit board that joins the two power trucks and provide lights to the ends was also missing. My first hint that something was amiss was all of the screws holding the shell on weren't there. LiG

    Rick, I think we have a difference of opinion of what LIKE NEW is. Broken axle/gear, worn chipped wheels and plastic shims aren't mine. My Life is Still Good in spite of dishonest people.

    Purchased an Aristo FB unit for the power trucks from forum posting, falsely advertised as LIKE NEW. Repaired broken axle/gear assembly to fix wheel wobble. Modified side frames to better match truck of that period, painted grey. I like the height of the Aristo truck a bit better than the USAT, but the Aristo does look a little big. Will have to decide which to use, or a combination of both, Pic shows Aristo front and USAT rear. LiG

    What is Best Paint Brand

    My only advice is what ever brand you use, stick to it even with the clear coats. Previous posts show how badly they sometimes react to each other. LiG

    Concrete viaduct molds for sale

    Yes, it was challenging, but I make my stuff like an elephant eats, one bite at a time. I needed more room in my workshop, so I was thinking, I don't need these molds anymore, so I decided to sell them. I don't think that I could make another set of concrete parts after the 2 1/2 years of doing it, I have had it. On to new challenges, my forte. Bob.

    can't even imagine the amount of work in building the molds much less making them, Bill

    Concrete viaduct molds for sale

    Thank you, but It took me 2 1/2 years to build, I think the romans did it in a day. Also, just for reference, there was more than 1500.00 spent on materials alone for the molds, not including labor and design. Here are some more pictures. Bob.

    I use Krylon rattle cans and have had good luck since 1975 with them, but if you parts are brass why not use "Jax pewter black" it turns stuff and old looking color of black/brown

    Nice looking engine Jerry. The layout really looks great as well. I have my complete smoke sound upgrade new GS Freedom engine and the 5 cars from Ray but no time to run them yet. Summer been overly busy with one son coming back from 3rd tour in middle east . Last one thank goodness. I'm actually looking forward to winter and my trip to York. lol Larry
  22. Hi all my first post, I am getting back to the garden railroad after a 5 year absence. Need to do track work for my garage full of locos and cars. I have track and switches from Sunset Valley RR laying in the garage ready to go. I have their hi level switch stands (brass) and would like to paint them. I have done HO since I was 10, but this is the first outdoor layout. I would probably spray paint the frame of the switch stands and either brush paint the targets or spray with lots of masking. What paint holds up out doors. Should I use some of the model paints like Model Masters or Tru-Color or go to Home Depot and buy rustoleum? Is there a UV inhibitor that should go over this paint? As long as we are on the subject what is best for wood bridges and structures? I am looking for color fastness, longevity, and a reasonable in-scale paint appearance. Thank you in advance. I searched through this forum and could not find a similar question. Art

    This one came with a casting for a roof mounted head lamp, but I preferred the nose lamp. Found a piece of 5/16" brass tubing. Opened the nose and using a pencil to align the fixture adhered it using Bondo. LiG

    Ray updated my Challenger to PS 3 and enhanced the smoke and sound. First test run was great.

    Mason Bogie

    Further progress on the mason bogie, boiler painted using cab light green and missed with silver over spray and the fire box I added rivets and colored both it and the smoke box with a dark gray metallic graphite. Pretty much most of the detailed fitting is done allowing a better look at the articulation suspension. which will be next along with the coloring of the running boards. Domes are done and screwed to the boiler with single 8/32 screw and leaving only the bell to be built and fitted to the top of the boiler. More to come, Bill

    Trade PRR B unit F3 for Santa Fe B unit

    Since these B units are like gold, and won't be able to find one, I have decided to paint this one in the Santa Fe paint scheme. Thanks, Bob.
