Union Hotel pix from Jim Gore

As promised, here are a couple of pix of the finished Union Hotel kit to be released soon. His exceptionally detailed build thread is available here. J&RG Facebook page.

Even though the kits are computer designed, builds like this, help us identify problems before they reach the market place. You might remember the go round over window and shutter  placement. We did decide to deviate from the original Harry Brunk drawings.

The results, thanks to Jim’s work, are fantastic.


Congratulations due

A bit late perhaps but some times folks don’t share the news and I have to stumble on it.

Congratulation are due however to Jim Allen for his HOn30 hopper car for its 2nd place win last February at the Fox Vally Division model contest. You can see the stiff compitition he was up against here.


We love sharing the good news. Do let us know of your successes.


More pix

As promised more pix from Mase.

I’m always saying that once you get a few kits its like an infinate parts box.

Most of these are bashed from former “Freebies”


A bunch of pix from Mase Maron

Mase sent us over a dozen pix of 4 seperate builds. I’m going to split up posting them over a couple of days so as not to bury any pix but I will share the note that came with them. The first pix are “Frenchie’s”

Hi Thom and Dave,

I’m sending along some photos. Marine Machine was at the Amherst Railway show, and is a modified General Rope & Wire freebie, with partial wood siding and a covered fenced-in addition. Frenchies Shellfish Cafe is a modified kitbash of Wright’s General Repair freebie with a modified Kirk’s Books. The other two photos show the downloaded grain elevator from Bill Jones and the same elevator using Clever Models textures, with the blower house repositioned. Both structures are HO scale. I’ll be working on a modified doubled length Zelmers and a modified Marine Supply for my next projects. Keep those excellent kits coming!
