Steinmetz, Pete


Pete Steinmetz has been an avid modeler since childhood. He modeled HO Transition for many years, then did a stint with N Scale. Like many N Scalers, he found his way to On30. While in On30 he discovered the joy of operating trains with Battery Power and Radio Control. He was fortunate to be one of the founding members of the Dead Rail Society. As the interest in Dead Rail grows and matures there is more opportunity to help people make the transition to Dead Rail. In addition to Dead Rail, Pete has done considerable research in Weathering Techniques using mixed media. He has been especially interested in techniques used by military modelers. He is working as an advisor to Ammo of Mig as they develop a line of weathering products for model railroaders.
