Current Ebay sales - Check what I've got for sale today!

I'd encourage you to check my feedback.  Many kit and finished model buyers have been very happy with the kits and models.

Wish Page - What I "wish" I could get started!  Maybe with your help?

I'm a member of the Atlas, Trainboard and Railwire forums. I developed these models with a lot of suggestions and input from those members. Many of my kits have been purchased and assembled by them in turn, and more than a few have put up photos and threads on their construction.

Here's some of my own favorites:

Atlas:  Whitcomb 65-tonner Project    
Atlas:  Randy's Whitcomb Done
Atlas:  Randy's Climax Done
Trainboard:  Building an A-18 Climax
