Diesel Detail Freak
Here's my lone complete Athearn Kenworth. I have 3 more trucks to go (right now) 2 the conventional, one COE.
Thanks! It was in their March 2005 issue, my first article since retiring. RMC will be using an article of mine in their next issue (March). It's been a long time since I've had anything in RMC. I sent it to them because the subject of the article was based upon an old article in RMC.dthurman said:BTW, Bob, I just realized you did the SD40-2 Elephant engine in the Model Railroading April issue I think, great job!
What about that clear glass stuff I recall reading about. It was a bit like glue, you painted it on, it filled the gap and dried clear. Maybe it doesn't work as good as they'd have you believe?JeffShultz said:Okay, pet peeve of mine - vehicle and structure kits that come without clear styrene window "glass."
I just bought some Evergreen clear styrene to try and make windows for some Walther's vehicles and structures.
Both the Micro Mark stuff & Testors cement work, but they kind of sag, but they DO work quite well, you'll see when I remember to buy some. The Athearn cabs came with the slide in one peice glass, thats too deep set for my liking, plus I need to add the interior!modelbob said:What about that clear glass stuff I recall reading about.
