Please read this guide for navigating and using the "Friends Models" website
1.) Welcome, and please visit the site often. Always scroll down the entire home page to make sure you haven't missed any news or announcements.
2.) Check the menu at the upper left, and its submenus. They remain similar throughout the year, but additions and changes ARE made periodically. If you cannot see some of the submenus because they "fall off" the bottom of your screen, use your "down arrow" button, or use the "roller" between your left and right mouse buttons, to "roll down" the screen. Contact me if you need help navigating.
3.) Sign up for free e-mail updates (at right). When the site is updated, or when I have news, information, or new products to announce, the people on the "E-mail List" are the first to hear about it.
4.) If you are not purchasing castings at this time but otherwise enjoy this website, a small contribution is asked for. Please consider making a donation in any multiple of $5.00 to help fund this website. Just click on the "Paypal Button" next to the photo of the old "Yankee Shop" in Danvers, Massachusetts (to the right), and you will be brought to the Paypal page where you can contribute via Paypal or credit card. I sincerely thank you.
5.) First-time builders, be sure to see the "Machinery & Tools Required" section for guidelines on building your first live steam locomotive.
6.) Enjoy the site! Thank you. Please contact me with any questions or comments or product inquiries.
