GE 132ton Ford switcher - made by Torsja
alias Tor-Jørgen Moskaug)
I always wanted one off these Ford switcher the moment I first saw a photo off it.
Being a US Ford automobile fan this would be just the right train for me.
And will fit in to my plan off making a future Z-Scale modules based on 60-70'th automobile industry.
I got hold off some drawings after asking for it on
the internet by a fellow Norwegian.
At first I did not have any immediate plans off
making it because off the lack off a suitable chassis.
The master is made from copper wire, styrene, resin
castings, and some modelling clay.
I millied out the first resin casting off the shell.
And here is the first actual fitting off the shell on the GP-35 chassis.
The modell konsist off two parts. The main shell and the walkways. The
master walkway is made off styrene. And the hand rails is made off a 0,3mm
My first painted casting off my GE132 Ford Switcher.
The decals is made with Testors White Decal Paper.
Printed on a color laser and coted with a layer off dullcoat.
I will sell or trade these locomotives with people that
are interested in them.
PS: I would prefer trading for these
locomotives so send me a mail and
- Trucks and couplers from MTL would be apprsiated for trade. ( ex. MTL's trucks w/coupler #004 02 001 )
