Larry,
I just got done reading thru a thread on another site about modeling WWI in G scale.
The person is building armor, vehicles, rolling stock, and locomotives. Very nice modeling.
Also features a fascinating video of U.S. rail system in the rear.
I thought you might enjoy the thread.

Thanks to all who stopped in.

12 of the 14 feet of modules I built today. Now in full on communication with the gang at Hickory NNGC and have a spot secured. 18 x 4 oval.
Now recruiting helpers. They have asked if I would run a clinic, but, can’t run a one man show layout and do a clinic at the same time. May need help.





These are N scale t-track modules. 48/75" x 20.75" foot modules weigh 30 pounds without land scape.

Looks like your ready for the show or getting close.

I don't know whether we can make it down there ut I'd like to.

I'm sure your layout will be the hit of the show hands down!!!!

Hope those guys in Hickory treat you better than they treated us when we were there. Good luck.

Frank,
Message me with the gory details. I need to know before I go. This will be a lot of work for a one man band.

Philip,
Not sure on Ed going yet.

Jerry,
I hope you can make it.

This is roughly the goal for Hickory. 18 x 4 foot layout, a simple oval with two passing sidings and a few storage tracks.
Left end is a farm (Structure is 80 % complete)
top left my bridge scene
Top Middle a field hospital (in design stage)
Top right Transfer yard (In Design Stage)
Right captured equipment (Complete), loading and a destroyed town (50% complete
Bottom Left my Artillery module (90% Complete)
Bottom center and right an 8 foot road filled with vehicles, marching troops and a rest area. (50% Complete)
All Locomotives and rolling stock I need are finished less Decals.

Comments are appreciated.

Offhand it looks very ambitious to me, but you have half a year and therefore it's doable. Sounds like you have a lot of the time-consuming work done.

I'm hoping to attend Hickory.

You have done an amazing amount of work in a relatively short time. I have no doubt in time.

Like Roland said, you've already accomplished a lot, and I think you'll get the rest of it done in time.

I'm liking it. Wish I was able to go and see it. How many "workers" will you have to help you at the NNGC? You're going to need at least 1 or 2. Remember it's up early and stay late.
