IMHO, those are some really nice looking kitbashes of some not so nice looking prototypes!rogruth wrote:Those three and Jon's all look reall nice to me.
What is your evaluation of the prices? High, medium, low, what?
This is just my curiosity.
My guess is that the selling prices were probably low, especially if the buyer resells them on ebay to bidders who don't realize they are plastic.
I'm not familiar with the name Meyers -- did he sell kitbashed engines and/or do custom work?
I remember RMC having a cover story about big steam kitbashed from AHM IHB 0-8-0s and that the story was set in an urban canyon. I just tried googling for it and found that the November 1977 issue had an article titled "RMC/Dremel Kitbashing Award - AHM's Indiana Harbor Belt 0-8-0 kit provides parts for a 2-8-2, 2-8-4 and 0-6-0 in 1/4" scale."De Bruin wrote:I recall seeing an N&W Y6 bashed out of two AHM 0-8-0's in an issue of MR in the 70's, like these Readings, that's whole a lot of hours for a plastic model, even for me.
There's a copy of it for sale on ebay right now and the cover has a picture of RGS steam in HOn3, so it is not the issue I am remembering.
