Site seeing – July 19

It’s been a busy month with lots of travel for work. Posts have been somewhat on the light side. Add to that a very cold Ballarat (it was -6 degrees Centigrade this morning and frost everywhere) and I have been not much in the modelling mood. However, the weather changes and my mood with it.

Site 1: Gene’s p48 Blog

One of Gene’s blog readers suggested recently that he publish older articles on building models to help those who want to build their own equipment. Gene said that his first reaction was that ‘it can’t be done since they are copyrighted‘.

After a period of thought he realised that some builds and techniques are already on the Proto48 Modeler site and are already available.

First is a PDF presentation about building freight cars with styrene [Link here] opens the PDF in a new window. You can download it directly by right clicking in Windows and choosing save link as. Don’t own a Mac so cannot help you.

The second link of the day points to the Proto48 Modeler site [Link here] which has a few articles posted that provide a lot of guides on modelling that are applicable to all scales, however the focus is on Proto48.

Enjoy, and I hope that you’ve had a great weekend.
