On20 Kornut Porter Colored by gunslinger87 On20 Kornut Porter Colored by gunslinger87
Well, I have FINALLY colored this thing AND even added a little extra thanks to the new MS Paint program. (Thank you Windows 7) XD

This little loco looks so much better in color, don't you agree? And what is you say on my protrayal of Lee Van Cleef over there?
Anyways... I hope you all like!

COMMENt If YOU FAVE PLEASE!!!!

Much obliged! I still need to figure out how to model it, though I have an idea. I'm thinking of using a BCH HOn30 0-4-0T as the base.

I'll need to widen the gauge from N to HOn3, and from there build an all new body shell.

Yeah, I've always loved these old Porter locomotives myself! And this one in particular is TINY! The track it runs on is only 20 inches wide!! :iconfoxhahaplz:

Something tells me you would like z scales they have the tiniest steam locomotives and they're cute and classy. also this one has a little Europeanized feel to it

Eh... not really. The smallest scale I'm comfortable with is HO. However that's not to say I don't like narrower gauges! ;p

Such as N gauge and Z gauge.

Eh... To each their own. I personally find N scale to be a little too small. I'm a details person so the larger the model the more details and features can be installed in them. :)

Although I have very little modeling experience I still consider myself a craftsman modeler. I enjoy scratch building, modifying, kitbashing, and altering models of all sorts for my hobby. I'm also attracted to a number of "Odd Ball" scales such as On20, On18, 7/8n2, ect... They have more of a craftsmen apprach too them and take me back, in a sense, to how our hobby originated. But that's my outlook. I'm not one to say that "This Scale is Better or Best". To each his or her own and I'll be more than happy to see what they can do. I know a gentleman who models N Scale and does an extremely marvelous job at it! :iconfoxyayzplz:

large scales to me break their parts easily hence I try to stay away from them unless I have too much money and can afford garden scales (I like those!) n is cheap and affordable when it comes to tracks, cargoes, and buildings.

To each their own I suppose. I don't judge one for their personal choice in modeling. :) It's all trains, so as long as we enjoy the hobby that's all that matters in the end! ;p

Does this train stop at Tucumcari?

Sorry. XD I love the squat wheelbase on this thing... I can imagine the loco kind of rocking front-to-back as it chugs along. :D The elegantly striped and topped sand dome looks fantastic next to the equally-elegantly rivited and utilitarian steam dome-- two kinds of art, one in public sight, one hidden. :D And GREAT colors, especially regarding afore-mentioned stripes on sand container!

Since you just posted a lot of stuff I will be commenting more later, but now I have to run! :noes:

Win scene. And the portrait is spot-on.

Oh, I forgot to ask-- is the bell kinda mounted on one side of the tank there?

Yes, the bell is mounted on the fireman's side of the saddle tank! :D

I think you're the first to spot that!! XD
