Jens, that's a very nice looking building. Is that made of styrene?

Frederic, your Sn3 layout is beautiful. Too bad it's being dismantled, but I understand your reason for doing it.

Frederic, you have a beautiful Sn3 layout - sorry to hear that you will dismantle it and re-build in On3, but your reasons are certainly understandable. I hope you have more photos of this magnificant layout that you can share with us. BTW, love that photo of the turntable, with the old boxcar sitting on the ground. Excellent background too - did you paint it yourself?

Yes, Al, I painted the background myself. I wasn't sure when I started it that it would turn out right, but even if I have seen many other backdrops painted much better than this one, I think it didn't turn out so bad.
I have a nice space in my garage to house the essential of what I built for this layout (and a nice work to turn the current very messy area in a railroad friendly space) so this dismantling could finally be a positive thing, with trains eventually running on this more modest Sn3 pike.

Mostly, yes. The roofing material is paper. I need to find a way to dull it down, I know.

I am adding a few models I scratchbuilt as I get time.
This one is a hoist we have at work for lifting machine turrets and stuff. I took several pictures and made many measurements to get it as scale as possible. The figure is there for comparason. I built it all out of brass shapes and styrene for the motor. The hook and chain were purchased. My plan is to use it in the Bulger's Garage I am also doing right now.

John, very impressive work!

This is an O scale water tower I recently completed that is waiting for a home on a module.
