      Early diesels of the 30's and 40's

      Some projects I did the last one-and-a half year

      UP's rebuilt McKeen M-23

      Starting with this

      And (almost finished) turned into this (meanwhile I repainted it with a lighter shade of brown)

       

       

      ATSF #2611 (rebuilt from one of the one-spots)

      starting with this

      Ending with this

       

      Another ATSF rebuilt of the one-spots - #10

      starting with this

      and almost finished

       

      PRR's rebuilt motor car #4663

      starting with this

      end - apart from lettering - ending with this

      And Rock Island's motor car #9006

      starting with this

      ending with this

      Regards

      Norman

      WOW, that great. Its nice to see someone build these unique locomotives, and do such a good job at it.

      I have wanted to build a seldomly modeled locomotive such as those.

      Very cool. I see someone has an obsession with motor cars. Excellent work on very unique one of a kind models. I love it.

      While they are all great that UP M-23 is just very classy

      Nice work, Norman.  Even in the thirties, the era of high styling and Art Deco, not all designs would win a beauty contest.  No reflection on your work, of course.

      Devon, they could, they really could. Them newfangled, cantankerous, unproven, deisel-lectric things are right pretty.

      Excellent, Norm...   They're great.   I really enjoy seeing "bashes" like that.  Something very much out of the ordinary....

       

      Very, very well done..
