The Modeler's Journal - July - September 2019.pdf


In this summer issue of The Modeler’s Journal, we feature the award-winning work of Filippos G. Anagnostopoulos in a pictorial essay of one of his dioramas featuring a scratch-built shelter (hanger), and two F16C fighter jet models.  The work is detailed and accurate to the prototypes.
In “The Modeler's Workshop” Ron Marsh discusses two fundamental concepts of railroad operations that are important to understand when operating a functional model railroad: train authority and car forwarding.  It is quite an educational essay.
The Track Planner (Bill Beranek), has some fun exploring the concept of building a dream layout that, within reason, is the utopia of track planning.  Bill applies his seven design elements and other design parameters to show us what it possibly would take to build this dream layout and what that design might look like.  Once you read his column, think about what your design vision and utopia is for your layout.
In his column “UP-Hub” Harry M. Haythorn documents how he custom-builds UP’s Theater Car 420 Fox River.  For those following his car build series (and even if you are not), you will definitely enjoy this article.
And finally, in his column “Jack’s Junction” Jack Hykaway explores the F40 and writes about how the reincarnated F40PH diesel saved North American passenger service in the 1970s and became the hero of a vulnerable time.

We hope you enjoy this issue.


Happy modeling!
