Here are some pix sent to us from the UK by David Charlesworth. The layout is called SIMPLETON HALT and is in 09 scale, which I believe is using what we would call N gauge track. If I guess right, I think this is our equivalent of HOn30. Please forgive me David, if I’m wrong. I espically like the little green engine, which I think is from our Critters & Cars DVD. In any event, David has done a fantastic job of modeling. Thank you for the pictures.
Hello again everyone. I have some follow-up information. I did not give complete credit for this great display. I was told by David that the layout was built by Mike Godfrey and the photos were taken by Frank Sharp. It’s pretty obvious that these guys have a great time modeling together. I also found out that I was correct in thinking that the track was N (9mm). But the model scale is O, not HO as I guessed. That makes the models On16. WOW! I’m even more impressed than before. Fantastic work guys.
Once again a kit bash improves on reality. Bob Bruce took the newly released fire house and made a few minor changes completely blowing my mind. He did a back date on the doors and windows (I’m working on an update that will be available soon and free.)
Enjoy the pix.
We had an interesting discussion recently about what people were doing with our materials, other than just building the kits. With all the excitement with Trainfest, these pictures got lost in the shuffle, but what Dave Rarig is doing here, really shows how you can re-use, re-design, re-purpose, re-color or re-whatever with Clever Models materials. Dave took a old N scale, plastic kit and completely changed it’s functionality. I think it really looks so much better than the original. It even looks more scale. As usual, GREAT JOB Dave.
