Interest in topics on HP Products rebuilds?

Postby AstroGoat760 » Wed Nov 15, 2017 7:22 pm

As many of y'all know, I have a number of HP Products and other older TT scale locos, some of which need rebuilding/repair/refit ("3R"). Is anyone interested in me doing a series on how to work on/look out for when performing "3R" on older TT scale locomotives?

I have a few 0-6-0s, 2-8-0s, 4-6-2s, 4-8-2s, and a 4-6-6-4 on the docket to perform "3R" on over the course of the next few months, if anyone is interested in what I will be working on.

I'm currently doing a thorough redo of a Kemtron/Lindsey 0-4-0 "Dockside"/"Tiny Tim." It's a real challenge remotoring, etc. this small loco--but it is fun- and keeps me out of the bars! :grin:

Okay, I will go ahead and start topics dedicated to "3R" of older TT scale locomotives. I am in the middle or rearranging the train room, when I am done, and my work-bench is ready, I will start documenting my repair and restoration work, for all to see (and hopefully learn from), and hopefully I learn from the process as well.

Another question?

Would anyone be interested in videos covering the basics of working on older TT scale locomotives?

With regards to CaTTwoman281's and my 2018 resolutions, we plan on starting video production in about 3 weeks or so, with the first video expected to be posted to YouTube in the 1st week of 2018.

I have pulled out an HP Products 4-6-2 Pacific kit of one of my boxes of TT scale projects. Is anyone interested in me doing a video/photo series on the construction of the kit, from unboxing to final assembly?

I think un-box/assemble videos are ALWAYS valuable...
especially if you include your thinking on why you are doing things in a certain way or sequence.

You could also cover potential modifications/upgrades (details, motor, DCC etc..) even if you don't tackle them.

Details and motor work, sure. I just do not feel comfortable enough at this time to cover DCC, as I do not have enough experience to consider myself qualified to cover it, yet.
