I'll tell you what....
I have never built modules before and I must say that it is so much fun.
With these T Trak modules you can achieve a lot in a short time.

On top of of, if not inclined. An obligation to a specific area for the sake of coherence. A layout that goes from NYSW's southern tier, to the NEC, to the Jersey Shore would be weird and disjointed to model, a couple modules picking out some favored vignettes much less so.

The grain is ready for harvesting.



Are we in England or is this the new Area 52?  :D

This is a detail of the left endcap.



A while ago I came across these rocks made of crumpled paper. This is the first time I used them and I'm really happy how this turned out.

Don’t think I’ve ever seen a crop circle modeled— excellent!!

Yes, I really like the circles as well, but the compliment goes to Busch who makes them.

Yes, they are! So far I have two, but they won't be the last...
They say each kit can be built in 20 different variations.
