I shared a couple photos from the recent NERPM event with RCW honcho Frank Hodina. He liked Bob Cronin’s truck models and suggested a blog post. Bob obliged with several photos and notes from his processes. Here he is with the scoop.
My interest in trucks built in the 1950s and 60s dates back to my childhood and fits my model railroading era. I chose Sylvan Scale Models because they make HO scale resin vehicle models that are prototypical to the golden age of trucking.
Dave Owens coordinates the New England/Northeast Railroad Prototype Modelers (NERPM) meet. It’s coming up June 16-18. He and I (Eric Hansmann, RCW web guy) have fielded questions over the years about RPM meets. Many people want to know what they are all about. Dave recently posted a great RPM description on the NERPM Facebook page. Here’s his work.
