Promoting Excellence in HO Scale Vehicle Modeling

Off Loading Caterpillar Equipment - By Bill McKean

This great photo from Bill McKean is from his model railroad layout. The two Cats are from Norscot, straight from the box, the Dodge pickup is an out of production Ertl with a little detail painting, and five of the figures are Woodland Scenics. The "people" are held in place with Woodland Scenics' new glue, so no "stands" underfoot. The portly supervisor on the flatcar is a Preiser figure. The building is scratchbuilt and the dock is from a laser-test that didn't lead to a production kit. The forklift coming out the warehouse door was built by Jeff Schwank.
