All of theese models I made when I was 13 to 19 years old and thats why they don't look that good, the last model I made when I stopped doing them was the S.E.M RT, I had stuff happen in life that put all my projects on hold such as "moving house, money, not enough space, needing new tools".

EDIT: removed img tags.

Great stuff Aaron
When I take pictures of my models I generally take three or four pics, because the dreaded "blur" will get you every time The view finder sometimes tells Lies :lol:

Stand back a bit further take some with flash and some without. Use a picture program like Irfanview
to make the picture smaller or to crop the item so that it is closer etc etc
Welcome back to HO. I think you will find all of the old timers have taken time off over the years, in fact I have only returned after a long break since 1997 :D
Cheers
Rod

Hi Rod,

I noticed they where a bit blured after I uploaded them,

Here is another batch of pics from my collection, I still have some boxes in storage that I'm not going to open or look for.

Some of theese are un finnished projects, I gave up on them when I had missing parts.

Hi Harrison,

Yes they are, the Tait is the round roof set I only have M-T-T and there from Sam's Workshops, the Harris is a 1961 2nd Series 701-781M, they are from Woodvile models, I never got to finish the set as they where sold out and expensive :(

Hi Harrison,

That was a D car on ebay and they are expensive when I got the kit versions for about $120, and they use a Athearn GP35/GP40/F7/F9 motor and trucks, Woodvile models kits where done by Alan Curtis at Sunshine Model Railway Club IIRC, the Harris Kits where $150 and used a Athearn SW1200/SW1500 trucks and motor, but the chassie is made out of whitemetal and can easily use a Flat Can Motor from Tenshodo (I think that was their name), I bought these kits back in 2000 at Werribee Hobby Center.

I did see a Harris set at VHC, but I have a feeling it had sold... :s

For powering them, I would say that (if you found them in kit form now...), you would be best off with a custom made Hollywood Foundry mechanism...
