Modeling Tips

This area has been created to help those who want to start modeling in O Scale. There are many things that can be gleened from this section. There are areas that help you with simple conversions from 3-rail to 2-rail and then other areas where advanced modelers can show you what can be done. By following some of these beginning or expert modelers, you will see that many things can be done. Do keep in mind that practice makes perfect and many of these individuals have been doing this for a long time. That being said, you have to start somewhere and there is no better time then now.

We want this area to grow and become useful to all and if you have something or a technique that you would like to share, please contact us. We would love to share it.
