Like many modelmakers both Dave and I occasionally produce models that don't fit comfortably with our main interests. This page covers what might be described as each of our 'secondary' interests. In my case that means Era V Austrian and in Dave's case pre-war German. All these models are in HO.
Dave's superb BR81, built from the equally stunning Weinert kit.
Roco ÖBB 2048 Superdetailed and updated with a new motor, DCC, finer wheels and Kadee couplings.
ÖBB 2067 that was once a Lima model. Though it's gained a scratchbuilt chassis now.
The Electrotren Tranfesa Ferrywagon is a nice model, suitable for use in both mainland Europe and in the UK. Unfortunately it's also a bit high to be truly to scale so we look at how to get it even better.
A modern masterpiece from Brawa. Here we start with re-wheeling the model to RP25-88 standards. There will be a follow-up page or two as detailing progresses...
Trix' budget model tweaked to improve it's appearance. A follow-on piece from the discussion/review of its capabilities out of the box the DCC capabilities are reviewed here, this a real case of 'guilding the lily'.
