Doe anyone have experience with the Model Masterpieces turtables?  I'm considering scratchbuilding a 65' but I'd also like to look at other options.

Thanks in advance.

You have another option I think, Wiseman makes a 65 feet turntable and looks nice.

Thank you, I've see that turntable.  Unfortunately its On3, On30 scale. 

I'm looking for Hon3.

Have you looked at the Walthers N-Scale turntables? They have a 90 foot (i think) one that scales nicely into an HOn3 turntable. All you need to do is fashion some scale handrails, or maybe a wooden deck, everything else pretty much stays the same.

I've looked at the Walthers 130' turntable.  It scales bout about 70' in HO.  Add a deck from an aftermarket vendor you have a suitable turntable.

I had a Diamond Scale 120' years ago and liked it.  They will be producing again in the near future.
