Scratchbuilt Barge

Scratchbuilt Pile-driver Barge

Built mid or late 1970s

I scratchbuilt this water-born pile-driver after seeing pictures of a Fine Scale Miniartures kit in a model railroad magazine. Only some years later did I discover that the great modeler E. L. Moore had originally created a model of this kind on which the kit was probably based — and written an article about it. Not realizing that Moore had created a model, I wrote a how-to-do-it photo article on my version for the March 1977 Railroad Modeler.
