Re: more cheap exsposure

Chessie the TT Kitten! :D We have a cat named Chessie, but he is a rather stupid cat. But charming, I hope, if not brightest animal on the planet. My big, ol' Tom cat, Bogart, is a pretty sharp guy, and as entertainment, he's a major hoot. . . . I wonder if it's too late to re-name him, maybe with ...

Re: Penn Publications

Bill, I will be interested in what Carstens Publications has to say. Also, I found a copy of the book at Abe Books online and purchased it, $9.40 US plus $6.43 shipping from the UK. Copies of the book can be had, it appears.

Re: Ridiculous Detail

hey Brian. are you still working on the sd40 project? J, hi. The SD40 is my favorite freight diesel, so it was a personal choice for me to work on it. I've decided to put it on the back burner, because it seems as though the scale needs 1st Gen-Transition era items first. (Do you agree, like modele...

Re: Ridiculous Detail

Mark, Marquette, thanks much for your replies. My thinking is one-piece body casting with add-on fret parts, cast/etched as need be. I'd avoid cast-on grabs and ladders; they would be separate parts to be added by the modeler. A modular approach might be the quickest way for we TTers to assemble a f...

Re: Ridiculous Detail

Got a question or two, if I might: What level of detail is desired for new TT scale products? Would N scale detail level be acceptable on new resin-cast rolling stock and locomotives? (I'm thinking North American prototypes from cottage businesses rather than established large companies such as Till...

Re: sd40

jmass, ConducTTor, thanks much for your welcome. jmass, perhaps you meant the SD40-2 project at TT_IMS rather than the SD40 project? The SD40-2 3D drawings were the creation of a German fellow. His drawings are drop dead gorgeous. My goal is to match his effort in model form . . . time will tell the...

Re: sd40

HI guys, The SD40 project at TT_IMS is mine. I haven't posted updates recently for two reasons: a) I'm not sure if it's wise commercially to upload drawings, I'm going to ask others with experience in the marketplace for their opinions. b) I've been buried up to my eyebrows in other projects (S and ...
