PRAIRIEWORKS MODELS: In the model railroad area (HO scale), there are locomotives, freight cars, passenger cars, vehicles, structures and steel mills. Other areas are warships, missiles and monsters & figures in various scales. All are custom painted and lettered using commercial kits, modified kits, craftsman kits (wood & white metal) or scratchbuilt. The vast majority of the models have only one available. All the models built by Jeff Borne.

AIRLINERS OF THE CLASSIC ERA: A look back on the classical era of air travel when the aircraft actually looked different, there were pistons and jets and a multitude of airline companies in a plethora of paint schemes. The American, British, French and Japanese aircraft builders are arranged in sections from the earliest through the last one of the era with the oldest being the DC-3 and the last being Airbus. The CD book has 323 images.

SUPERDETAILNG WALTHERS COKE OVENS: The Walthers Coke Ovens is a great kit and the only one of its kind, but it is somewhat thin on some details, lacks some key components and is too small.
This video shows how to transform two Walthers kits into something approaching museum-quality. Tons of detail are added to the kits that includes lengthening them, walkways, handrails, trolley lines, ammonia liquor spray pipes, modified quench tower, quench locomotive, coke guide, door extractor, oven pusher, coal dumphouse, coke load-out, coke wharf and new smokestack Finally the finished model is painted, weathered and mounted to the base with trackage.
