Hi all ,
after showing my first scratchbuilt car in 1/35n2 in its raw stage , here's 2 finished cars ( without details for now ) and a recently bought 1930's Hudson in 1/32:

An overwiew

The car and the back of the boxcar (a lot darker than it should be...)

A too diagonal view of the two cars , the gray figure standing in the door of the Boxcar is a woman which came with a set of 1/35 figures I bought . It's the only civilian figure I could get .

The Boxcar from the other side . I thought that when there's a roofwalk , there has got to be a way to get on the Roofwalk , so I made a crude ladder .

The Flatcar from the side . I built it patterned after a RGS equipment flat I had seen somewhere .

The Flat from above .

The Flatcar lying on its top side , showing the bracing I made (Balsa isn't very sturdy...) .

The Flatcar with the Hudson on top .

Same as above , but with everything openable opened and a figure standing on the footplate of the Hudson .

I also built another figure (out of a "vietnam war" set from Tamyia) :

And here he is , arguing 'bout something with the woman on the car :

Don't hesitate to post your opinion on what I have done .

Added Nail Holes to the cars :

On the Boxcar ...

... and on the Flatcar

Matthias, looks like you are off to a good start in 1/35n2. I love that Hudson, it's the same color as a friend's '57 Hudson Hornet that I used to cruise in when a teenager.

Keep going, 1:35 scale is a great size to build. The Viet Nam era military guys look like some that I should find, thanks for the tip. It takes a while to get the scale into your brain, after many many years, I am still working on that. Do you have any locomotive or layout plans?

Hello Woodie ,
about the scale - takes a while , but it's much , much easier to get into your Head than HO ;) .

I've got lotsa locomotive plans , but they mostly rely on getting On3O Shays , Porters , Forneys , Moguls , HO USRA-x-6-x 's from Bachmann , some other kind of 16,5mm gauge steamer or SPUD .

I've got a layout plan in the rough stage . It's an outdoor layout , measuring 6'x 9' . It will include a Wild West style town (I think I'll give it the name Arcadia) , a canyon with a mining site in it (9mm Gauge) and a logging high line .

I broke the Wagons down to make some new and (I hope it is that way) improved ones . The first was a shorty scale 12' Gondola .

Another question , and I'll stop for now :) :
How was the weathering ?
