Modelling Heavy Industry : A Guide for Railway Modellers (Paperback) (Arthur Ormrod)
About this item
Railway layouts often depict a branch line in a rural or urban setting, with the majority of locomotive models representing passenger trains. However, increasingly, ready-to-run models of industrial locomotives are becoming available, providing the unique opportunity to place them into an industrial context. This new book gives the guidance and inspiration to place these models in their natural, industrial environment. It gives step-by-step descriptions of several build projects including a gas holder, a cooling tower and an open hearth melting shop. The book shows how to make resin buildings, kits and scratch-building and demonstrates the construction of industrial struce models in a variety of scales. And finally the development of an industrial locomotove fleet, specialized rolling stock and road vehicles are covered.
