Just caught some of this but did look up PT boats, seems they were
at least 20' beam and 80' long. What flat were they on for the 80'?

Re: ADMIN: Oddball Decals

Since my inquiry of Sep 16 asking if anyone had received a decal from Oddballs Decals within the last 3 monyths, I regret to inform the group that no one has indicated that they had received any. And, there are currently 5 members who indicate that they not only have not received odered decals but they have taken action against Oddballs Decals.

Beam is the width of the ship.

Hi Gene,

It's the width of a ship or boat at its widest point.

Gene,

Beam of a vessel is equivalent to Extreme Width of a freight car, that is, the width at the widest part.

Brian, Folks,
As I noted earlier, this isn't really a very good cargo for long-distance
ovement by rails due to the beam of these PR boats.


*******************************************************
Bruce,
I did note your valid comment regarding the PT boats, I've long had an interest in these craft (and their British counterparts, the MTB's). However, your suggesting regarding the LCVP's is indeed a great idea. My uncle ran one of these during WWII (including the landings at Guadalcanal), also when I was stationed at NAVSTA Guam, we had several former landing craft converted for various harbor duties in Apra Harbor.

Thanks for the suggestion!


Take Care,

Bill and all,

UMM-USA makes a fabulous Razor saw that takes a bite less than .005". I
learned of this earlier this year when visiting my brother with a project in
mind and leaving my Xacto Saw at home here in Oregon. A good friend of his,
a military modeler, said "you're not still using an XACTO razor saw are
you?" OF course what else is there, and the one I have has about 80 teeth per
inch... he said, " here borrow mine it is thinner than a business card and
has 100+ teeth per inch."

This tool cut through my Proto 2000 50-foot Dbl door boxcar at the top of
the car side and at the roof line like butter. I had the roof off in less
than twenty minutes with virtually no clean up. No drag while cutting just an
even stroke and it is cutting. SAWEET! I am hooked.

Now this might seem a bit commercial but I am in no way connected to these
folks, but this is the slickest saw I have ever used. I plan to use it to
cut down some LL door to correct them to create the correct door for the
PRR X38 boxcar, actually several, who knows, this project just might show up
in Cocoa Beach.

Allen,
You are totally correct, and my previous reply wasn't correct.

I knew something wasn't quite right when I posted my reply earlier
today. For some reason I thought Southwest Scale Reproductions offered
the earlier-version Youngstown door, but you're correct that it's
offered only for 6' door openings. The link I provided was for 6' door
openings, and the cars had 8' openings. My bad.

For another option besides doors of cast urethane, recall that C&BT
Shops came with Youngstown doors of the correct version for these SRR
box cars. C&BT had them for 6', 7' and 8' door openings. Of course,
they might be difficult to find.

Keep an eye on eBay as Ted sells things from time to time. I have
purchased several of the SR postwar boxcar kits less the Branchline cars.
In these he included both the Superior and the special YSD door and the
great decals.
Hopefully he will gradually get back into this as he is a great resource.
