The Australian Region of the NMRA has recently updated some of its web pages including photos of Layout Tours for 2007.

One page that has been updated is the page on Geoff Nott's HO scale logging layout. Here's a sample of what you will find there:

And here's the link:


There are about 20 images to view. Enjoy.
Hope it enthuses y'all.

Geoff and Jill entertained me one evening back in July shortly after I returned DownUnder from France and I got to hang about down in Geoff's layout room for the evening.

His HO layout sits opposite his On3 layout. They are both evolutions of his Leigh Creek Lumber themes. You have to turn your back on the one to view the other.
Geoff has come to a great position here with his modelling:
Why throw out the old (HO) ?
Just grow into and move on with the new (On3).

Best Regards,
Phil Morrow

Wow, what a feast for the eyes! That's some of the best modeling I've ever seen. I especially like that water mill. I need to plan on having one of those on my new layout. And those trees are the best I have ever seen. Any idea how he made them? Thanks for the link, I've got it bookmarked.

Shaped and wire brushed balsa trunks.
Caspia branches and other sticks.
Ground foam.
And good weathering.

Geoff always had a fetish for Driftwood Stain.
But he's over it now and moved on from there.

Thanks for the link Phil. I love the way he's crowded in the structures along the waterfront.

Phil, thanks for sharing that link. I always enjoy seeing Geoff's layouts. That was a good way to start a Monday morning.

As you think, so will you be.

This is spectacular modeling and what an eye for realism. WOW, not only does he build
diorama quality models, but has built a beautiful layout to boot. This is a rare modeler.

Geoff has always been one of my favorite modelers. About a month ago, I dug out the Great Model Railroads that featured his layout. I never get tired of looking at it!

Humbling, to say the least. I'll never run out of modelers to look up to. Even the late great John Allen couldn't hold a candle to some of the increadible modelers that are out there these days. Well, maybe if he was still alive, but hands down Mr. Goeff's work is about as fine as it gets.
