    The source for this book, and for 35 plans by Mr. Collins is
    the Oregon Historical Society-Official Site

    www.ohs.org

    click down to Shop
    Scroll down to Museum Store
    Scroll down to Ivan Collins Plans

    (by the way, going direct would have been cheaper than epay!)

    I'm going to pick up a few plans, maybe a future model? -I can see this turning into a whole new direction for me, as it combines model making, vehicles, especially utilitarian vehicles, and wood-working.

    According to the article, Mr. Collins had been employed as a model maker, at Lockheed, and had made 46, models by 1953. The building of each model took a minimum of 600 hours, and are true to the smallest detail, gold dust from a local creek is in the stage coach's strong box, and beer is in the barrels. - of note he used a camera of his uncles which was purchased 1894, to record his achievements.







    I just watched the Clint Eastwood movie, HANG'EM HIGH, and I think that it might be possible, that the actual vehicle that this model was made of, could well be the "Tumble-Weed Wagon" ,used early in the movie to transport prisoners? Maybe?
