Message posted previously to the Frisco list server-CLA Frisco Folks: Some time back, I was thumbing through some of my Frisco literature and began to realize that there is a LOT of interesting modeling fodder out there for which I haven't seen models, but wondered if Frisco Folk have modeled any? With the great job that Mike Corley's done on the Frisco Resource Center, now's a great time to post pictures and "how to" instructions on for all Frisco modelers. Who knows - maybe pictures and an article would qualify one for one of the Master Modeler Railroader author requirements - perhaps Richard Napper would know. Anyway - as cooler weather nears in the fall and winter, here's a partial list of some of the interesting items and oddities that I personally would be interested in seeing... Brake sleds converted from old steam tenders (X-80, X-82) Steam tenders converted to auxiliary water cars for MOW service (or tank cars mounted on flatbeds for same purpose). Any Frisco MOW derricks. HW passenger cars painted in streamline colors with stainless steel fluting added (I know Ken McElreath has modeled one of these with great results; there was an old FMIG newsletter article where he gives a few tidbits on these cars). HW passenger cars with scale "shadowlines" to mimic the stainless steel fluting. E7 Locomotives for "Meteor" and/or "Texas Special" (Tim Cannon, I believe you've modeled the latter?). SD-38-2 in 2 batches: the 2 assigned to the Cherokee hump w/dynamic brakes and extra brake cylinders; the 2 assigned to the Tennessee hump with no dynamics but extra brake cylinders. GP35 "torpedo" boats with the modified fuel tanks. wood slanted-cupola caboose 1700-class cabeese actually kitbashed from a model of a PS-1 boxcar (both cupola and bay window design) but PLEASE don't destroy one of Kadee's beautiful models! U25 (both high and low-nose models). S-2s in original Northeast Oklahoma (NEO) colors with SL-SF lettering. S-2 #292 cabless "Booster" unit RS-1s with AT&N sublettering. Repowered RS-2s with low short-nose. U30B If you've modeled these, but don't have access to scanning the pictures, I would be happy to help (please contact me off list if interested). Just some food for thought - I know there are a lot of good Frisco prototype modelers out there who have a lot of interesting items/techniques to share. BTW, with Railroad Prototype Modeler meets seeming to gain increasing popularity, any interest in an FMIG RPM sometime down the road?
