First Projects, 1:35 scale and about

This article was published May 17, 2012.

Around 1:35 was my scale for many years, but never got down to build something more than one or two timesavers, the rest was vehicles. Mostly small loco/car projects.

Mail waggon

My first scratchbuild project.. a mail wagon in 1:36 scale from around 1975, when I was a teenager. It's built on top of a Märklin flatcar with flat removed and replaced with my body. I had a rebuilt Märklin 3095 loco with it, but that's sold now. Also had a dozen flatcars and log vehicles, but there livings today is also unknown.
