Larry, Good looking Tin Chicken.

Expect there would be a better response if we opened it up to more scales. The "Big" requirement would be the size of the Baseboard. I am going to get one of the Cork boards from Walmart today or tomorrow and can post a pic and a link when you get the thread going.

Will present the "challenge" to our Modular group this weekend and see what kind of response I get there.

Distraction Challenge, is it a go?
If so, what are the criteria?
Also, I'd like to see a longer period of time to work on it.
At least six months sounds good to me.

I did do a little work on this project today.

Five bents and four ore bin supports created and being test fit. There will be an 18" hand pushed cart line from the mine shaft to the ore bin, this will make a great scenic block for the rear loop track.

Here are some crappy pictures from my old iPhone. I hope you get can see where I am going.

I remember as a young lad, all I wanted was a "layout" like this, but could not afford it.

So good always, to see a modeler build something for our young generations to enjoy.

well done

cheers mate
