Are there any military modelers here. I am interested in that.
Im new to the hobby after a very long absence but Im doing a Civil War era layout. Well I should say Im trying to anyway!
You should find lower codes of rail. Civil war rail was definitely smaller stuff.
Oh crap all my track work is already done Cab. This is definetly learning as I go. Sometimes I just learn it too late!!
Well. Sort of.
I have an occassional Battletech mecha-bash on my layout (Both are N-scale)
thats ok. no one else will notice unless you point it out.
Just a bit. I model war stuff to take a break from MRR.
My latest model. A WW1 tank.
Yeah, i'm building a modern USS New Jersey in 1/350. its massive. ironicly, its way out of HO scale, its actualy to small, even for forced perspective. It has to be 3 feet long!
Geez, some 1/87 ships are too dang big. Goes to show even HO has its limits.
My friend Blake does some military modeling. Here is a link to his wbsite.
I don't do military modeling but there is a large munitions plant not far from where I live that was once served by rail (you can see the abandoned roadbed and gates leading into the complex near grade crossings. I always thought a setting like this would be ideal for a model railroader also interested in the military. In past years I've seen fleets of military vehicles parked there so you could show off you tanks, jeeps etc, and also spot freight cars at the various buildings.
