Including step-by-step instructions, hundreds of scale drawings for rolling stock, tracks, equipment, easily adaptable to HO, 00 and 0 gauge.
In the great spirit of railroading itself, here is a book to provide the model railroad hobbyist with some of the rarer thrills of constructing scale miniatures of the real prototype. This new volume for the advanced builder, adaptable to 0, 00 and HO Scales, is complete with detailed drawings and includes thirty-six full projects. Replicas contained in this book cover all types of rolling stock and equipment (see Table of Contents on the back inside flap of the jacket), and the text contains descriptions of materials, charts providing a table of minimum double track centers, a summary of gauges and lists of materials required. Materials, tools and kits are fully discussed and invaluable hints are given on the best methods of working from plans. From the author's creative suggestions springs the challenge of superdetailing on any project in which a modeler may have a special interest: improvising, altering, free-lancing, re-designing-these and other avenues for original and imaginative building that set the enthusiastic hobbyist off from the average.
With this detailed, scientific and up-to-date book the modeler can add to his store of replicas-from historic passenger cars to modern streamliners, from unusual pikes to cranes and signaling equipment, thus adding immeasurably to the pleasure of a fascinating hobby.
