Re: [HOn3] ah, youth.
- In high school (1963-67) I superdetailed and converted three brass engines,
then later sold them while in college to buy a motorcycle. I would love to
know what became of these models, if any of you have seen them. They were:
RGS #25 converted from a PFM #20. Steam dome from a Ken Kidder Buchanan
Kemtron C-16 pilot, smokebox front, stack, cab interior panels cut down from
Kemtron single-panel cab. Tender floor cut out enlarged for a German orange
plastic motor with gearhead reduction.
RGS # 455 After the Wreck from a PFM K-27. Outboard slanting cylinders from
a PFM K-28, zamac cab cut down from an MDC 0-6-0, front cab doors open, new
brass roof, cab back. Tender shell from an Athearn USRA 0-6-0.
D&RGW C-21 superdetailed from the Balboa model. Kemtron C-16 pilot, smokebox
front, steam dome, stack. Cab front door openings filed out. Fabricated
brass cab doors in open position (both front and back of cab) . Tender deck cut
out and brass bunker fabricated. Kemtron Simplex tender trucks.
I'd be grateful to hear from anyone who's seen these models.
