HO Scale Models

Recommended Posts

I'm not much into scale railroading, but Athearn makes some really great stuff in HO (1:87) scale.


Here are a couple of 1961-1969 Ford F-850's. On the left is a stake bed done in the Baltimore & Ohio railroad livery. The J. Fisher Concrete chain-drive mixer is even more impressive! The two segments on the end of the spout detach, and the uppermost one folds up, much like a real one would. The drum even rotates.


Being a big fan of the C-Series, I also have many of the vans and tractors. The Bowey's and Old Colony tractor/trailers share the same single-axle beverage trailer, but the trailers used in the CF and Roadway versions are different. The two vans are also the same basic truck aside from the markings- the Kalmbach Publishing truck has Budd-type wheels, while the winery van has spokes.

Best part is, they take up very little room. You can fit about 30 of these in the "footprint" cast on the shelf by, say, a stock-wheelbase  AMT 352 Pacemaker. xD
