Retired Model Railroader managing editor Jim Kelly lends his knowledge of real railroads and model railroading to this unique guide. It is the perfect guide for model railroaders who want to add realism to their layouts.
From the first 356 to the latest Carrera 4, from scale 1:220 to 1:5, and from the least expensive toy to the most sophisticated kit, the history of Porsche is illustrated by brilliant pictures of model cars. In 356 pages, Ulrich Upietz and Ekkehard Zentgraf not only demonstrate the fascination for model cars but show design studies and wind tunnel models at Porsche's Weissach Research and Development Centre that have never been published before. The appendix contains a "Master List" of approximately 7000 models and is a prerequisite for all admirers of the world famous sports cars from Stuttgart. In Boxed case!
Volume 1 of the Diesel Modeler’s Guide starts off with a look at the NW2 and the roads that used them. The pages that follow provide the reader with useful prototype information as well as tips, techniques and insights from noted modelers on a variety of locomotives from roads across the continent. All of the articles were originally published in 1994 and 1995 issues of Model Railroading magazine. The articles have been grouped by railroad and compiled to provide a handy reference guide for the diesel modeler.
Taken from the pages of Model Railroading magazine, the articles Volume 2 provide a cross-sectional look at prototypes from all regions of the country, from some of the earliest Fs to the most modern power on today’s roads. This volume’s Special Section takes a look at General Electric’s Dash 9-44CW, and provides both prototype information and useful modeling ideas. All of the articles were originally published in MRG between July 1994 and May 1996.
