New Modeling Article - AS-16s!

Written by Conductor

Hello Everyone,

Reading Modeler member Ron Giordani (reading5310) is one of our community's well-known diesel modelers, regarded for his willingness to break out the X-Acto knife and razor saw and cut into locomotive shells to kitbash and detail them to more closely meet Reading specifications.  Frequent visitors to the site will likely have "followed his builds" on various Reading locos over the years.  

Ron was kind enough to share his very detailed clinic on modeling the Reading's Baldwin AS-16 road switcher locomotives on the site.  To access the article, Click here, and enjoy!

Happy Modeling,
