I admit these are, to get this thread started, just re-hashed photos already seen elsewhere but I am asking all modelers involved in this type/scale of Railroad Modeling to contribute here if possible.
Two converted & spliced Atlas HO Warren Thru Truss Bridges. Trackage by Trumpeter. Some Trumpeter ballast sections for the tops of the end abutments and the Pz. III is from Tamiya.
Yes, they work great for static display photographs. The one I have in the picture above is approximately 2 foot long. It’s a single track so very narrow.
I built another one the same size that I painted flat black. I thought it would look better because the eye would focus on the subject rolling stock. It doesn’t achieve this like I thought it would. I’m going to repaint it ‘prototypical’ like the other one and set them side by side for pictures.
A recent post over on the Armorama: Scratch Built and Conversions thread by Diomartin.
Scratch built European Trolley and Trailer using only a few commercially available chassis parts. (Heavily Modified.)
Hang on I vaguely recognise that photo…looking back on this thread I’m assuming Military scale means 1:35? I saw someone posted in 1:72.
If I understand correctly this is a lament that rail-worthy subjects (and indeed aviation subjects too) haven’t proliferated enough in 1:35 scale, to my mind by far the most popular scale. If so I would agree, it seems positively contrarian that other scales predominate. How hard would it be to re-issue 1:32 scale aircraft in 1:35? I’d buy a bunch immediately. Similarly 1:35 locos & rolling stock – why not for God’s sake, look at the legions of applicable existing figure sets for starters.
