Title: From 1908 Fairbanks, Morse & CO. Catalog.
Post by: 5thwheel on April 08, 2018, 09:23:58 PM
Digging through my old catalogs I found these cuts that might be of interest to some the modelers here. Help your self if you can use one.

Great stuff, thanks for posting them!

The prospecting setup, with both hoist and mini-mill, is interesting. I don't recall ever seeing anything like that before.

Yes, thanks for posting. I recently took a tour of an old Southern Pacific depot and they had a Fairbanks depot scale that I am adding to my depot. Really cool stuff from a really cool era!

More ore stuff. Having problems with picture posting space. If I make the size any smaller the print would not be readable.

I like the coaling station. Nice photo. -- Russ

Why don't you make that out of paper ???

You could get a Cricut to cut the paper and embrace the new technologies.

Hey, Jerry, wait up! I think I'm about to join you ...

Correction: I could get a LASER to the cut the paper. Here is an example of a 1:24 scale laser cut paper model. -- Russ

If the model is made of paper I can only say fantastic. Why do I just use brass, silver, plastic and wood?

Wow! That is impressive!

My thought about modeling materials: It's not what you use; it's how you use it. A good modeler can make equally good models from metal, wood, plastic, or paper.

On the other hand, some materials are more efficient to use for producing some items. Example: It takes days to build up a truck tire from paper and every tire is, essentially, a master. On the other hand, once you've created a master from any material and make a mold, it takes minutes to cast a dozen copies of it in resin.

All great stuff! About that coaling station... I wonder how the cars are pulled up/lowered down?
