    Hi from Georgia. Having recently retired, I now have time to devote to model building ... which I've always enjoyed.

    Attached is a photo of Ed Bertschy's 1922 Fordson tractor which I built a while back but didn't have a good digital camera to capture a decent image. This model is based on Magnus Erikssons Fordson paper model and may be distributed with his permission only. I downloaded the plans on the web (I can provide details if needed) and I made some modifications to add realism: exhaust system, steering wheel, shift lever, etc.

    My current project is a Bavarian S3/6 Steam Locomotive (CFM Verlag). The plans are good, but some items just don't have sufficient detail. For example, in order to fuild a more realistic frame I would like to have a drawing or photo of what the actual frame looks like. Trying to construct one "blind" is very difficult. Anyone out there have schematics?

    Ooo, more pics please! Nice projects! And a belated welcome to the site. You have been hiding your light under a bushel! (Note the agricultural reference there....)

    Photos of locomotive

    I've just begun the work on the locomotive and am still working out details to add to the frame. Having problems finding a source for drawings and/or photos of the frame itself so I can adjust the model. However, as soon as I begin working on the final version, I will begin a thread with step-by-step photos to show progress.

    Thank you guys for the warm welcomes.

    Meanwhile, here is a photo of what I'm trying to build:

    Your model is a gem. I wish you were in LA so I could see it in person.
