Welcome to Industrialmodels
My name is Don Smith and I specialize in weathering O scale freight cars and engines. I strive for historical accuracy so each model is carefully researched using books from Morning Sun and on-line freight and locomotive archives. I also offer custom built O scale industrial structures from the 1920's to the 1960's. Each model receives an engraved builder's plate identifying it either by serial number or year of completion. All of my work comes with 100% satisfaction guarantee.
Each week I offer a small selection of models for auction on Ebay and models will also available for purchase in my web store when complete. If you are interested in weathering services for your collection, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 207-730-1909 M-F 9A -5P EST.
The Latest News!
Parts Store Closed Week of 10/30: The online parts store will be closed from 10/30 to 11/6 as Pat will be travelling. Everything will be back online after the 6th with 5 new products.
I finally got the lighting installed on the layout this summer. It was a much bigger project than I anticipated and I am happy to announce that everything is finally operational! "So what?" you ask. This allows me the lighting needed to create movies everyone has been requesting. So check back daily as I will be able to share more of the action on the layout. In addition I will be doing some "how to" video blogs as I continue to build out sections of the layout. Check back weekly to see what's going on. This weeks vids showcase a bascule bridge I built on the layout. You can read about the construction process on the OGR 2R forum. Click the movie link here or above to see the bridge in action....
