A Model Of The "Choo Choo" Px48 Narrow Gauge Steam Engine - A Classic Engine
When you build one of these models you build the best!
A well done model depends on accurately drawn parts that fit properly when assembled and details that can distinguish the finished model from common stuff. Look at the pictures to see how well this model turns out. And that is just what you can build.
The excellently done drawings illustrate the construction process down to the finest detail. Following the illustrations, with all parts numbered, is as easy as it comes.
As a display, it's a winner! Scaled at 1 to 25, the model definitely makes itself known. In short it is an eyecatcher and sparks interest even among people not into trains
Why Is It An Excellent Gift?
It's unique. You won't find these plans in your typical hobby shop and not very often online.
It's a high-quality gift. The plans are drawn by a man who lives to model. His reputation is such that his own models sell for thousands of dollars. The plans are the standard of quality.
Modelers are by nature collectors. Modelers have on their shelves, in draws and everywhere else plans of models that they will make some day. They get a great amount of joy in thinking about what they're going to do someday. This plan book is a modeler's dream. And a collection of these books will and to that dream.
It's a multi-useful gift. The plan can be arranged to make operating brass engines. Or to make 3-D printed models - which also can be made into operating engines.
Modelers always appreciate good plans with good instructions. So buy one of these great plan books now and put a smile on someone's face, maybe even yours.
About The Narrow Gauge Steam Engine Px48
The PX48 is one of the most popular narrow gauge steam engines. It is affectionately known as the "Choo-Choo". It was designed based on long-lost plans for the PX 29. A much improved engine, it was reliable, easy to maintain, and comfortable for the floor plate crews.
You can still take special rides on narrow gauge lines that parade out their own PX 48 engine for special occasions. This is an engine of note and admired by all people interested in narrow gauge steam engines.
