Hauk,

Thanks for the info...brass for me too. There used to be a yahoo group called something like Brass Locomotive Builders. Someone there also was doing O scale real riveting. I can't find that group anymore.

I was a member there, too. Very little activity even in the best of days, and I guess they never made the transit to another platform when Yahoo Groups closed shop.

I was a member there too, and I do prefer metal for building locos.  However, as I've stated elsewhere, while the individual models have their own identity, for me they form a part of a larger layout project.  So some pragmatic choices creep in: Do I make every rivet from brass or do I do something else that saves time and money without unduly compromising the result.  I won't live long enough to complete the larger picture with a rivet by rivet approach so pragmatism is required.  On a personal level I really enjoy building in metal, but it takes time.  I reckon the latest advances in printers have upped my productivity by a factor of 10 and the quality of the models has improved too.  My emotional investment in each model is obviously down a bit, but overall the enjoyment factor is way up - which is what it is all about.

Old Pullman used to advertise with me when Beat Hug owned it and lived in Florida. He sold 1:32 scale products, all of very high quality. Is it the same business now under new ownership? -- Russ

Hi.

I am really not sure, unfortunately. But there products have high quality.

Great source for small rivets, thanks! Since I model in the live steam world, plastic just isn't going to work for me! Melted rivets!

Much of Grandt's tooling wore out. http://sanjuancarco.com acquired some and they might help you locate other sources of plastic details aside from Tichy. -- Russ
