Yes, it's a nice car. Here's what it looks like sitting on trucks, compared to other equipment.




Much work still to do, but it will soon make that "first trip" to the cliff dwellings. Tom mentioned that it might work for On30, however, the seats are just right for 1:35 and the height is fine also. It may look a little large for 1:48. But that's my opinion..

The mogollon using 3d printed cars. I'll be.. What's the world coming to? Pretty soon they'll be using radio waves to control trains! The car looks great, sintered nylon is perfect for larger scales. In HO and N it's more suited to timber, stone and brickwork.

Not much room for weights-were you able to sneak some flat lead or something in the underframe?

OK then, here it is in all it's seedy glory:







These fellows previously were "passengers" in another car but now have become "archeologists" or some such. One guy has a carbine in hand...just in case. Another fellow has a bottle and his friend is trying to get a swig. And there's a bandolero almost asleep with a lit cigarette in hand. What a fun time they will have if they ever get to the Gila cliff dwellings.

Woodie

I'm just amazed at the speed at which some if you guys work. And even at that speed you still manage to turn out such fantastic looking stuff. If I worked that fast it would look like a 4 year old did it. Very nice, Woodie. Very nice indeed.

C'mon, Woodie!

For such an elegant car I expected a better clientele. Y'a know...Mr. & Mrs. VanWoof or such; the lady waving a hankie in front of her face.

Now the guy with the carbine, you bet'cha. In that teritory you might ought to mount a small cannon in the car, or at least on the flat that proceeds it.

Hmmm, maybe a long-coated German could be...

Great work there, bud. I'll have to drop by and see it.

Looks like rain though, so cover up!

James-how about this-they may be gruff looking dudes, but they are MINE OWNERS! That's my story...so far.
