Lobster Traps - Railroad KITS

My finished HO scale traps.
I purchased a package of RailroadKITS brass etched lobster traps about a year ago for my waterfront scene. There are actually very easy to assemble and look really good. Mine I painted a wood colour and used PanPastel grays to weather them a bit...George Dutka

Eight traps for $12. They come on two brass sheeting. The instructions are good and straight forward.
For the curved traps one needs something to bend and shape them around. They actually do not need any glue, just bend and fold.
One finished and three more to go.

Another Creation

The boxcab next to this engine is O scale standard gauge.
This model Terry built on an O scale frame and wheel sets. I am not actually sure what scale it is but it sure looks great...enjoy...George Dutka

KIngfield, Maine Watercolouring

Always liked this view of Kingfield, Maine on the SR&RL Ry. Glad to have the print in my modeling workshop.
Back during the National Narrow Gauge Convention held in Maine a few years back I picked up this print for I think $5 or $10 at the structure housing the layout at Booth Bay Railway Village...I now have it mounted in a frame.
