You realize, don't you, that ardent Gazette readers and the National Narrow Gauge Convention Faithful would excommunicate you and your models from the narrow gauge hobby for the following reasons:

1. It ain't a train.
2. It ain't On30.
3. It ain't in the Gazette.
4. It requires advanced modeling skills and therefore is intimidating.
5. Bob Brown didn't anoint you with olive oil.
6. Your model didn't receive the Paul Scoles Seal of Approval.

Thank goodness. Welcome to the Dark Side.

1. It could go on a train
2. Isn't it On2.467?
3. What is a gazette?
4. I like to be intimidating  Cry
5. Isn't bob the builder for children
6. Seal? No animals were harmed furring the construction of this model.

Unc- are you my father?

Hello Marty,
I have admired for some time to build this great model.

Several times I've long considered this picture and ask myself how it all works?

An excellent work.

Helmut,
That is part of the modeling "journey" for me.
I spent a long time studying the images too (prototype reference).
I had a hard time figuring it out too.
But I "think" I know now!

The long lever hanging down the side basically turns the machine on and off.
The small gears at the top allow different speeds for the automatic feed.
The hand-wheel at the front allows the operator to advance the drill lower (or higher) to engage the work.

Always fun to learn about a new machine!

Even if you left it like that and didnt paint it, it would still be one of the coolest things ive seen.

Great job Marty

Thanks Guys!
Gordon, Plan is to do as many as I feel like. Looking forward to the lathe and all the other little details.
Going to do whatever looks like fun or inspires me.
Hopefully a shop someday too. Was at home depo Sat. and found some mosaic tiles that would make a good limestone wall!

Wes, Thanks! yes it is cool but the right color/finish will really make the difference.

No pressure now right?.... Undecided

Well it is done!
I am very pleased, and I am my own worst critique as most of you can relate.
This has been a challenging project and likely due to that a VERY enjoyable one!
I see some things I could have done better or differently but then again I have only built
one 1/16th camel-back drill press.
I am not sure what is next in the machine shop but rest easy there will be more, lots more!
Hope you enjoy the final images.
-Marty

Marty, you're an artist! Hard to believe that the scale is not 1:1.

I have to revise my earlier statement - even with paint you have done it beautifully!
