Modeler's Spotlight Video –– Inside Cody's Office for March 2017

Associate editor Cody Grivno is busy working on rolling stock for the latest N scale Model Railroader Video Plus project layout. In this month's modeling tip, he'll show you how to upgrade freight car models with metal wheelsets, including some painting and weathering techniques. He'll also show you some new model railroading products in N, HO, and O scales, including new freight cars from Eastern Seaboard Models, Walthers, and Atlas O, as well as a new diesel from Athearn Trains. Viewer mail this month includes questions about modeling locomotive wash racks, sources for different types of ballast, how to install etched-metal parts, proper track spacing for curved and tangent track on multi-track main lines, and Cody's snappy necktie.
