Back to basics....
Posted by UKGuy On 12/08/2018 At 7:37:08 PM
Well its been a long time since I've done any modeling, and definitely many many years since I've done anything like this.

The bench is cleared and kinda clean, I'm in the mood to build something, so, lets see what happens.

This is definitely going to be a re-learning experience... here goes !

Juneco CNR 250 Ton Ice house
Posted by Glen Haasdyk On 12/02/2018 At 01:46:33 AM
I recently added a small addition to my layout and now I need to add a few new structures to it. The first will be Juneco's CNR 250 ton Ice house. This was actually one of the main reasons for the expansion as I've had this kit for about 10 years and really wanted to build it.







It's not a large kit, about 4 1/2X 3 1/4" so it's a nice model railroad size. Especially for a home layout.








The kit comes with milled walls, strip wood and a bag of castings. It is pretty obvious that it pre-dates any laser cut kits.
Brick Detail in ď3-D printingĒ
Posted by TC On 11/21/2018 At 7:55:18 PM
Iím not terribly familiar with the 3-D print technology currently available., Iím wondering does anyone here know how fine can the resolution & detail of brick walls be executed? Iíve seen a few examples here and there and the resolution seems a bit ďchunkyĒ and more like block rather than brick at a scale size of 1:87 for example. Thoughts or experiences?
Deep River Vinegar.

This is a scratchbuilt model I did basing the idea off the Builder's in Scale Sassen's (sp?) Vinegar. I had entered it into a contest this weekend at our Indian Nations meeting, which was a 144 Sq. inch requirement, any size or shape, as long as it comprised of 144 sq. inches. There were 6 entries, I came in second.

I had built it a few years ago, but I didn't have a name on it, and the scenery had to be re-done, as my skills have improved since them. I changed a few details and added some, that looked better, and am much happier with it now. The tanks are wood dowels covered in Paper Creek siding. The boiler etc., under the shed is a Woodland scenics set I couldn't resist using. The stone foundation are baby blocks from Dr. Ben's, and plaster was used to fill the entire interior of the foundation with the building built on top of it.

I made the sign by printing it out on a computer and cutting it to size, then to make it thin enough to go on the wall, I turned it over and scraped off the paper by wetting it, then scraping the paper off with an exacto knife. It gets pretty thin, so careful handling is key to keeping it from getting torn.

Some of the pictures below have a newer and much larger tree, this one was added a few days before the show, as I wasn't happy with what I had previously put there.



































More Expansion at the F&SM
Posted by halrey On 11/19/2018 At 11:17:22 AM
Well George has been busy again, this time he has expanded from Fillmore Yard to the windows. He was quick to add, that all of the new structures were already built and on shelves in the other room, that would explain the quick expansion.
He also added a very nice abandoned locomotive and a sweet little water tank to the main line near Beaver Pond.
George always amazes me with the speed and seamless additions and expansions he does.

Nice site. Enjoyed looking around. Am in the early stages of designing a layout. As a kid, I ran Super O track and am considering making the layout using Super O track. Availability of wider radius curves is an issue. Will prob end up modifying the existing (36" dia circle) curves to increase diameters to 60" (5'),72" (6'),& 84" (7'). So, I was just looking around hoping to get some layout ideas.

I bought my first HO model train set when I was 12 years old, had it on lay-away at G&G Model Shop in the Village, Houston, Texas. I have loved trains all my life. My Grandfather worked the old Yazoo & Mississippi Valley RR (with John Luther Jones), I.C., Gulf Division, L&N and retired off the MoPac. He and his half brother owned the Louisiana Southern RR, which ran through the truck farms in Barataria. He had box cars loaded under guard (holding Thompson Sub-machine guns.) My mother went once and it never occurred to her, veggies need no guard, but Hooch does.
