      Mark on the HH660 and the Boxcab, what are the intended motor blocks?

      For wheel spacing, the USA trains motor block of the NW-2 would probably be the best match, the frame has a generic hole placement that will accept either usa or aristo motor blocks

      Thanks Mark, was that for the Aristo FA1 block or the Aristo Centercab blocks or will either work? There's a significant size difference between the two, both are now like hens teeth, at least I know at least I can still get ahold of the NW2 USA bricks.

      Fa.rs3.uboat motor blocks are way to big to use, the better aristo option is off the even more rare centercab, hopefully bachmann will bring those back

      No paint? Decals or did you print the white?

      Looks like the renderings are getting cleaner as you learn.

      Hey Mark, you are doing some fantastic work, but I have a question for you.  Do you design all these from scratch or is there a source of drawings out there that you have access to.

      All of my alcos are from scratch

      the sw1500 is by Daniel Noree

      the f40 is modified from design on sketchup that is drawn wrong (cab section isn't close but the body was usable)

      the GP30c was found on sketchup and made 3d printable by me

       

      John the lettering is vinyl

      Very nicely done.  I'm impressed.  Got to love those Alcos and especially the C-630 C&NW.  Later RJD

      Now that Bachmann has reissued the Aristo FA blocks, that opens up the prospects for even more models.

      Perhaps I bailed form 1:29 just a bit too soon - I just love the Alcos; especially the early ones like the RS-1 and variations of the RS-3.  As mentioned by others, the printing quality seems tons better than your early ones.  Where do you find the time to do all this design work?
