  1. New Member Introduction
    Hiya! My name is Caitlin, I'm new to the forum. I'm trying to make custom HO scale figurines as a gift for a friend, I thought this would be a good place to ask around for the best way to do that. I've messed around with miniatures my whole life but never tried to make any. I'm very into the...
  2. HO Scale
    Good afternoon everyone, I'm looking for some feedback on my website and products. I've been producing and selling quite a few HO scale items on eBay and Etsy in the past year and decided to create my own ecommerce website.

    Rivarossi & the Indiana Harbor Belt U4a While browsing the internet a while ago I happened upon a discussion about Rivarossi’s O-Scale 2 rail steam locomotive kits, namely their Indiana Harbor Belt 0-8-0 (class U4a).

    I just started to build a layout and i'm planning to have the time period set in the present day. Ive seen some of the mass-produced cars with the graffiti on them and it looks fake to me. So, I had a friend of mine paint up a couple of box cars with some graffiti. Graffiti on model trains seems...
  10. O Scale
    Does anyone know if personalized train cars can be purchased? I want to give it as a Christmas gift to someone and wanted to put their place of business logo on the sides of the car. I was going to buy a plain white car and paint the logo on myself, but don't want to have a sloppy finished...
