The Display Table

You have to love the size and power that is hall mark of a UP Big Boy. This brass model is made by Samhongsa and sees use on Michael Rozeboom's HO layout.

This N scale engine house was built from an American Model Builders laser kit by Steve Watson. Steve made his own corrugated roofing material.

Chris Lyon has added a back patio to his Pool Hall. Chris built this model as part of the SLD Laser Structures 101 project.

This C&S Boreas Pass Section House was assembled from a Wild West Scale Model laster kit. The walls are made from blasa wood! This is Grant Knowles handi work.

David Steer built this HO Hanrahan Refrigerator car from a Protowest Resin kit. Dave even added threaded truss rods and turn buckles!

Grant K built the HO scale Scrodras Corner Gas from a Ed Fulasz plater kit. These are affordable high quality kits.
