Thanks Ashley. If you're in the UK, I recommend a visit to my Links page to visit Kathy Millatt's web site. She's doing an excellent job modeling the New Haven on that side of the Atlantic.

Regards.

Fabulous site in more ways than one. I now know far more about NH
boxcars and the transition to the McGinnis scheme. Fascinating stuff.

Also lovely to see the grandson being recruited into the fold. I did
that with my Godson too. Got to think of the next generation of modellers.

Several members of this group have seen the photo-etched eyebolts I designed
for my own models and they have encouraged me to make them available to
other members of the group. I don't want to be in the parts business but I
am willing to make them available to you as a one time deal. You can find

Re: Owl Mountain Models safety vents

Donald B. Valentine
 

Is this not what the Owl Mountain website describes doing if you read the entire site or is it another modification based upon a P2K 8,000 gal. car?? Great product which I'm glad to see.

Cordially, Don Valentine

Clark,

Excellent question. Using P2K tanks with these vents is not completely accurate. Since the type 21 tank had dome top vents, you need to look back towards the type 11/17 tank and earlier as a place to use these vents (on an AC&F tank). My current plans are to backdate the P2K type 21 tank by removing the side/top seams/rivets and adding vertical/radial courses and archer rivets to get 10,000 gallon type 11 and type 17 tanks. The F&C tank will be modified with archer rivets to make an 8K type 17. Additionally, the type 21 dome is shorter and has a larger diameter than the earlier domes so the dome area will need to be filled and new, more appropriate domes built.

I did look at the website. Great product, but is it possible to fit those parts on P2K or IM tank cars?

To save wise guy remarks, of course they will fit. But, are they appropriate? In other words, what reporting marks and numbers would be accurate?

I'd love to be able to put them on plastic tank cars.

I recall someone took over the site from Ted and was trying to make it

request for financial assistance may have received a positive response
from the group.

Re: Gritty paint

Richard Townsend
 

Thanks to all who have made suggestions.

As for those who say it would be out of scale, I agree that in HO scale much if not all of the characteristic foundry casting texture would not be visible. However, I believe there are situations were some out-of-scale texture is appropriate. How else could we convey the difference between something that is rough and flat (i.e., flat-painted) and something that is smooth and flat? For example, the stucco texture on the side of a building would be all but invisible in HO scale, but if we want to convey "stucco" in HO we have to go out of scale. Who remembers Michael Gross's "Model of the Month" stucco-sided Hermosa (?) depot? The texture was way out of scale, but it worked. I think the same can be true for a large foundry casting. Perhaps a physicist could explain it as light and reflection not scaling down well. I don't know. But I'm going to try modeling the foundry texture and if I like it I'll post some photos and you can be the judge.

I have a similar question in that I have a F-50-4 flat car (Gilmaur kit) that I'm considering adding wood racks to for use as a hog fuel car.

BTW hog fuel is wood chips/sawdust.

Hi Clark,

A modified version of New Haven boxcars based on the web site list is on the "New Haven Freight Cars" page on my website about halfway down. This table is based on the original by Ed Hawkins on the Steam Era Freight Car site. I've added a bit of information and a few notes to the list. You or your friend are more than welcome to contact me if there are still questions.
