Cool Lee!

I just noticed that I'm in every 5th photo on this forum... ;)  And every third if you count photoshops!
Every forum needs lots of Ghoulish images around Halloween ...  ::)

The flashes you see in the night sky are the battle fleets of various decal manufacturers fighting over the right to produce the decals for all the undecalled projects I have. :P *

I haven't posted to SNFF in a few months, and I have quite a few projects that are ready to be shared.  I'll show four of my more recent and ongoing projects tonight, mainly because I'm tired of taking pictures.


Starting from largest scale to smallest:

The only HO locomotive I own

MDC shay, I need to finish the railing on the back, convert it to coal, and replace the stack.

Norfolk Southern hopper (N)

I accidentally smashed the end of this hopper car, so I rebuilt it to match the prototype.

SMS Karlsruhe (Z)

Z scale German WWI light cruiser, far from finished. The deck houses and stacks are just sitting there, which is why everything is off kilter.  I just noticed that the bow needs some work as well.  This is my father's Christmas present if I can get it done in time.

Boondoggle 'n Offschedule coach (Z)

Not finished, wrong shade of white for the windows, roof needs to be black, and some other work needs to be done. This is one of the Hallmark ornaments.


*Basically a paraphrase of a paragraph I partook of from one of Douglas Adams' books, Life, The Universe, and Everything.

Well,
Barely made Sunday night. This weekend I finished the prototype for my new Deck Girder. Here is a couple of shots.

One nice bridge, BLMA wants $300 bucks for a Warren. I picked up a JL Innovations Mc Leod Service station I'm working on. Nice kit. I cleaned out a bunch of items and traded for a few craft kits at the LHS.

For me this week, based on the positive response a couple of weeks ago on the "Somewhere West" N scale modular layout whose owner lives in France...

Here are a couple more shots.

The man in the picture is the creator of all the incredible scenery on this layout:




Here's a couple of detail shots on scenes in the layout.

A small canyon:





Forced perspective:



I posted some of the many pictures that I took on a new
pbase.com gallery, they are at:

Yes ... Riveting Steve. I like out-ies better than in-ies too.

I really don't understand this.
For years people were screaming for better bridges than the plastic ones (Kato, Kibri, Vollmer) that are available and now we finally get people like Craig and Bob who invest a huge amount of of their savings and time in outstanding brass models and now the (properly same) people cry that those museum quality models are too expensive. For those people, let me give you a link to some old LifeLike, ModelPower accessory items.
I just hope anybody with a great idea for a future model will not be discourage by all that whining.

This type of model is a focal point on a layout. Not everyone will spend the money, but if you do, it deserves to be the center of attention ..

on topic, I completed the last piece of benchwork this past weekend. Now I have to level it and secure it to the walls (currently supported by clamps)

solved the enigma of how to incorporate staging into this (relatively) tiny layout (I think). Now I can get down to the nitty gritty of trackwork design and roadbed ...

no pix, gotta set up that picasso thingy sometime ...
