RE: [Yorke_Kits] Digest Number 460
- Morning Guys,
I don't have the sketch books, would someone mind posting a picture of the
factory Tom is talking about or you could send me a copy direct to my e-mail
address. I have broad-band so don't worry about the size of the file.
Thanks for your help.

I went home last night and looked at the factory drawing in Sketchbook 2. I
think it would make a great Frijole Factory. I really like the overall
composition and "add-ons". I understand the "generic anytime, anywhere
practicality " of the corrugated siding but personally I wouldn't mind
seeing another material mixed in. Maybe the ghost of an original building
(stucco, frame) or a newer addition (concrete block?). Maybe released/sold
By my standards this would be a "huge" building and I don't really know
where I would fit it in on my "concept" layout. But I'd still want one.

know all the great plans you are missing? Come on now. No self respecting
member of the Yorke_Kits group should go anywhere without them. What if
somebody asks you a question in the grocery store line and you can't answer
it because you don't have the books? What are you going to do? Let the FBI
know what you are reading. They might learn something!

............................Here's the deal..............
Toys for Collectors has some interesting things on their website. Look up
trucks. There is a Buessing LKW 1903 unit at $29.95. They are rare, but in
stock right now. There are a couple of MAN Oldtimers -- a tank and a low side
at $29.95 and $24.95 by Conrad. These two are 1:50 scale. Then, in the autos
section, the little BMW Dixi 3/15 of 1928-1932 at $14.95 that is pretty barn
close to an American Bantam. All are in stock today. I know. I just ordered
mine! There is also a pie wagon of about 1903 that I did not order, but it
be a good addition to a collection of "railroad" model trucks.
As far as Ol' Trux go. I will be introducing some later this year or next.
will be bashing parts that require a donor truck. There will be several for
1934 Ford. I will also do some 1941 Chevy and Dodge trucks. Plus others.
Perhaps a few Model T's, but the donors are about $25 each unless we can
still get the Ertl Center Door Sedans. I used to have 200 of those when I
them years ago. I think I have two left. Those are mine.
That's it for now. Remember, the Buessing is limited stock. I'll do a set of
drawings for the conversion of that one for the group later.
Did you notice the Clamshell Grab bucket ($ 22.95) , the Wrecking Ball
($ 14.95 ) , and the Dragline Bucket ($ 24.95 ) ? They are all in 1/50
scale, perhaps suitable for your crane conversion?
