Canadian North diesel locomotive (Fairbanks-Morse CFA-16)
« on: May 05, 2016, 06:22:32 AM »
German paper model designer Hartmut Scholz has a very nice deisel locomotive in Canadian livery namely the Fairbanks-Morse built CFA-16. You can acquire one by sending him a message through his site (link Kontakt). I believe the model comes with a length of track too so it should make a nice display. Cost of the model €13,20 and it comes in two scales 1:48 and 1:45 (don't ask me why so close alternatives).



Link to his site (there are many nice models so browse it through): http://hs-design.npage.de/eisenbahn-lokomotiven/us-diesellok-fairbanks-morse-cfa16-canadian-north.html

I'd love to see some pictures of the model itself.
Are there any more photos?

1/48 and 1/45 scales?
1/45 is German O gauge...based on German G gauge (1/2 scale)
1/48 is American O Scale...1/4 Scale, to match Dollhouses and other Models.

I cannot access the site myself because AD-Blocker won't let me!
There are also unwanted Scripts running on that page.
Malwarebytes is blocking the site as a result of those scripts.

Here's a thread on a German forum: http://www.kartonbau.de/forum/us-diesellok-fairbanks-morse-cfa-16-1955-hs-design-hartmut-scholz-versch-ausf%C3%BChrungen-hier-new-york-central-spur-0-1-45-new-releases/board4-vehicles/t34247-f73/#post554280

Same user apparently with the same build also on PM.com: http://www.papermodelers.com/forum/railway-related-builds/35971-us-diesellocomotive-fairbanks-morse-cfa-16-nyc-1-45-o-scale-hs-design.html

Those are ongoing builds and I haven't found a picture of the finished model yet. And a note about the rail section it's a model of it's own and can be found here: http://www.schaalbouw.nl/rail.htm  Many more nice free models there too.
