What plan of the station is Banta using? The Maxwell plans are not correct as Dan Pyzel has pointed out. My scratch built model was built using these plans and is incorrect as to window and enclosed stairway on the front bay section. One of our members posted their cad drawings of the station on our site which shows the station as it looked. Note that no photos show the bay section. Either way the station is really neat but it would be great if it was completely accurate to the prototype.

I was speaking over the phone with Bill of BANTA Modelworks today regarding one of his HOn3 models I'm currently building.  The discussion eventually wandered over to the possibility of his producing a Taos Junction Depot kit in HOn3.  As it turns out he has all the plans for the Taos Junction Depot already in his computer.  I asked him what it would take for him to go into production and he said that he would need about 5 days of CAD work and then do the actual manufacturing and writing of the instructions.  Bill thinks he could produce these kit for somewhere in the range of $125 to $175 retail.  In order to be able to produce these kits he would need to make an initial run of at least 25 units.

I told Bill that I would post this information here and on the Chili Line group and see if we can generate enough interest, via order commitments, for him to be able to go into production.  I, myself, will take 2 kits off the initial run, if he does go into production.  How many other people out there would be willing to commit to buying a kit so we can get this rare bit of nostalgia from the Chili Line built?

Re: Another Building

  Happy to share what I do.  I've been fooling with acrylics for a couple years now and Some Days
it works good...... other times not so good.
    I just use the CHEAP stuff from WalMart.  I like buying all sorts of colors that I'll probably never use but at
$0.89  a bottle who cares.  Any way.... I have a half bubble plastic tray that I came across as packaging
somewhere along the way and I use it with a cup of water.
  I simply dip the brush in water and then grab a touch of paint from a bubble and some times
dilute it and some times use it straight.  That gives me stains and paint in varying shades and colors
as I pre smear all the parts.with either color or stain.   This by the way gives me are the variants that
make it look like I really worked hard at the colors (when I didn't).
  I even stain over parts that I sprayed white to start with. Makes an interesting aged look to the paint.
  Anyway That's all I'm doing.  Simple Cheap Easy that's me.  But most of all FUN.

here's the bubble paint holder:

Bar Mills and I March 1st

Bar Mills Models has invested in new computers and video cameras to do a regular program of interviews and clinics.

These will be on Facebook and Youtube.

The first episode will be live on Facebook on Monday. March 1st at 7 pm Eastern Time.

Go to the Bar Mills Models Facebook page to see it live.

For the first episode, Jack Ellis will be giving a clinic on structure building, there will be a prize given away and I will be interviewed by Art Fahie.

If anyone has any questions please contact Art and if you have suggestions do the same.

My interview will be about 10 minutes or so.  So you probably won’t need No Doze.

Put it on your calendar.

See you then.

Its an ETOPS aircraft which means it can blow an engine at the most critical time, PNR, on a route say crossing the Atlantic or Pacific, and continue to an alternate airport along the way.  Great airplane and easy to fly even when heavy.

Re: Jan/Feb 2021 Gazette

Randy Hees
 

There is also a ghost town east of Death Valley in California named Ballarat after the Australian gold camp.... unlike it's namesake it is now abandoned.  Maintaining a narrow gauge railroad focus, it is north of Seares Lake, which had three, 24" gauge railroads, used to harvest "trona", plus a monorail built to haul epsom salts.  And south west of Keeler, where the SP narrow gauge ended, and where two narrow gauge railroads harvested salt.
