Larry, nice going. I can't imaging painting all those details and figures. Are you going to have a backdrop picture?

Thanks all,

Jerry, I think Les is up to something that will top this.

Frank, I am going to have a backdrop but have not found a picture that works, so far. It may have to be painted.

Thanks Dave and Mike.

I have been working on stuff. This weekend I put DCC with keep alive in three petrol engines and started working on 7 more wagons and 3 Howitzers.

Here is a picture of one of the work in progress projects, a damaged d class wagon.




This is the reference picture:

Thanks all.

I have been doing a lot more work than I am posting. I am adding DCC keepalives to all my WW1 engines. Have built three more howitzers and might have finally solved the chopper coupler challenges.

I am experimenting with small magnets and have a 3d designer working on creating a coupler that hides the magnets in the face plates.

Here are proof of concept pictures and videos.

Wish me luck.

That'll improve operations a lot; definitely worth a few experiments
