Yes....I would be most definitely interested in seeing photos of your tuntable, as it seems that others would as well. I do have the complete kit from CMR, but after assembling a Diamond Scale kit years ago......'been a bit reluctant to build a TT kit again. In kit building, I just do not have the patience anymore to try and figure out what the kit manufacturer is trying to say. Interesting note about the Diamond scale turtable I had built..... I was not to happy with it so I took it to our first Great Scale Model Train Show in 1982 (Ellicott City Armory) and sold it for $140 (offer made to me)before the show opened. An hour later a gentleman comes up to my table just as the show begins and asks me if I would trade my PFM Ma & Pa #26 for a turntable he had in his car. I said I would look at it.....it was the exact turntable by Diamond Scale model I had just sold....only ten times better. I agreed to the trade as I had an $85 price tag on the brass consolidation. (This is one of the reasons I love train shows!!!) That same table is still on my layout and can be seen in both Allen Keller videos.
We may have a Chinese pope before Walthers finally delivers their turntable...I was hoping someone knew more about the status of it. Walthers keeps delaying the due date......but from photos and rumors, it looks and sounds absolutely great!!! Will it work well???????? Another question of great interest!!
I greatly look forward to seeing your photos and information on your model...
