4856Re: [FS32NGModelrail] Questions for this Group.................
- Jun 1, 2007Tom Yorke and other members of the group: I personally would be interested in conversions for Bachmann steam locos (a la the Mogollon & Los Pinos Porters) & gas mechanicals and perhaps a 1920s or 1930s dump truck conversion for some of the very beautiful 1/32nd truck models which are readily available at reasonable rates from Motor Mint and Diecast Direct (a semi flatbed trailer, moving van, or a canvas covered stake bed load would also be nice). In addition, I would be interested in the Frijole Flats series in 1/32nd scale as there are a number of us who model the Mexican border area.Just some thoughts for you to consider.Thanks,Byron Davey

producing model kits and parts for mainly On30 and 1/4" scale. That market seems to be
very "flat" now. Too much available. Modelers too cheap to buy anything of quality (except
locomotives from Bachmann). The main slogan seems to be " it's good enough".
I love designing and producing specialty miniatures. True, the markets are small and niche. I
do have a small line in G scale but the 1/4" line is sitting. HO scale is a little small for me to
see but I will probably go back to producing it. My question to this group is what do you
want? Would it be worth it for me to do miniatures in 1/32 - 1/35 scales? This is one
manufacturer who is interested in your scales. Would you like a few resin conversion kits for
vehicles, some small structure kits and maybe a few locomotive conversion kits following my
Scrap Yard Dog series in On30? I will post a few samples of miniatures over the weekend so
those who are not familiar with my work may see what I am talking about. You could also
visit the yahoo group Yorke_Kits for a wealth of info.
I would like to know if you guys are interested in some special kits that I can do for you.
