Interesting topic here. Over the past perhaps 10 years I have designed and produced numerous Gn15 kits in resin. it takes a long time to design and develop a kit. Research, design, patterns, molds and finally casting. Then plans and instructions. My earliest offerings faired better in sales, but ove...

order from shape ways

Tebee,
Can you help me with my order of parts that you offer from Shape Ways? I cannot use their site to place an order. It just doesn't work. My Email is tomyorke@bellsouth.net. I would appreciate your help with my order.
Thanks,
Tom

Corrugated Spacing

What most people don't realize is the fact that corrugated sheets came in several different spacings. Many photos show buildings with two different sized spacings on the corrugated sheets. O scale sheets are fine for G scale with a tighter spacing - which is purely prototypical. Many years of my own...

Tom Yorke Address

My Email address is tomyorke@bellsouth.net. The Gn15 bloodspot works fine too. In the upper right corner there is a heading of "Design". Click on that and that will take you to a screen where you can access all of my sites. i no longer have a website.

Model T

I lost the radiator shell some time back and so it sat. I just unearthed it again, so sometime soon I hope I will be able to finish it.

I have a body kit still available for this MP unit. It's a Plymouth with an open engine compartment complete with engine. The cab is closed to hide the motor. It is called The Scrap Yard Dog and sells for $55 as a resin kit - you add the MP chassis. Shipping is extra. Send me an Email and I will sen...

Does anybody have reference to Diema DS90 diesel drawings? I could certainly use a set.

Nice work Juergen! I wondered how you were coming along on the model. i really like the headlight.

For some reason, either mine or the site's, I am back in the group. Don't know what went wrong initially, however, all seems OK again. Thanks Carlo for your help!

That is a common problem. It is because the crimper is not a precision tool. Simple as that.

Not exactly seagulls, but I am in the process of molding two pelicans that should be ready soon for 1/2" scale. I will also have two double doors and an electrical meter set sometime (I hope) soon.

Yep. That's it!! Beautifully ugly. The Model A kit pictured is one of the better kits available. Lots of extra parts for the money including bodies! In fact the telephone booth cab (left over design from the '27 Model T cab) is what I used as a cab on another conversion in the Sketchbook. It also us...

Dave, Looking good! When I finally get around to finishing mine I will probably incorporate trolley-type long/wide couplers the pivot being inside and under the frame about where the motor block screws to your brass frame. I will then mount a wide bar under each end beam to support the coupler bar a...

David, Great work so far! You've gotten farther than I on this contraption. Actually, after you've done all that fine work, I did produce a basic frame kit for the beast in resin. A few are still in stock. I am using the Beverly Hillbillies 1919 Olds for my model, but any old frame/engine combo will...

Les, Thanks. I've been doing it for better than 50 years! I hope I've learned something. Whatever - its fun. Its probably better that I go with the Hn18 (even though it runs on HO gauge which is really about 16" anyway). The three times gauge rule that way will help me out a bit - even though I...

Labels help define but they also tend to place things in specific niches. That is a problem with Gn15 I think. It is sort of a nebulous grouping as far as scale goes as I understand it, however, it also seems to represent equipment of a specific "size" - that being mainly of the tiny natur...

Steve, No offense taken. These machines I am doing are really too large for true 15" gauge - no question. But it is what I have to work with. Certainly On3 or S track gauge would suit this stuff better, however, there is another consideration. That being I am using a converted On30 layout as a ...

The plans will appear in the next issue after the one that is due out in a month or two. They were also in my Sketchbook #2.
