Re: [z_scale] Photo etch ideas
- Dear Ed,
I found the relevant information on snow plow and cow catcher in scale Z.
In an advertisement of ASPEN MODEL INC., http://www.Aspenmodel.com or e-mail
Postmaster@..., I found WESTMODEL Oldtime Snow Plow for steam
locomotives (Cat. No. 40033) and WESTMODEL Old time cow catcher for steam
locomotives (Cat. No. 40034) at about DM 13,- each.
