DAVID FLETCHER'S MASON BOGIE MASTER CLASS
Large Scale Modeling Excellence


David Fletcher is a well known railway modeler whose work and drawings grace virtually every model magazine and a number of websites. With David's permission, I have captured his MyLargeScale 2002 Mason Bogie Master Class Project, as well as a number of his other published works. David's prolific research, amazing CAD skills, attention to detail, and superb modeling abilities are unequaled, as is his generosity in sharing his knowledge and effort so widely.

Most of the material listed below is in PDF format. There are more than 340 CAD draeings in the Master Class Project. These are grouped into ZIP files for easy downloading. Most of the drawings are full size for a 1:20.3 scale model. Illustrations on this page are just to whet your appetite and are reduced in size to fit the page format.
