Guff, thank you. It helps to have some people who can mentor you.

If it ain't broke don't fix it. And if you do fix it, keep it simple, stupid.

My recent build is one tenth scale, livesteam scale. It's still in progress but is going along smoothly.

Hopefully it'll be done soon and I'll be able to move on to yet another project!

Good to see some talented young blood. You are off to a great start. Every build you will learn and get better. Enjoy the journey.

Dad got me started young. My newest project, since the House, bridge and its diorama is pretty much done, is re-using my old O gauge layout, a 10x5 rectangle. I'm working on making it a dogbone style. Based in the late 60's to early 80's in the Virginian coal fields, she's gonna have a coal mine, depot, tiny yard, two small industries, and a small loco shop. All in N-scale to save space in my room. Project is divided into three parts. Sparrow Creek which is the west dogbone, Black Hollow, a midpoint where the yard lead and depot are, and Black Hollow Mine, the mining company end. Should see benchwork completed in the coming weeks. Now I gotta see if I wanna put some company houses on it. Decisions decisions. I'll also find the correct sub-forum for this project to go under.

Things are a little slow on this thread so I thought I would show my scratchbuilt 1:29 scale version of the FSM Hazen Boyd build.


The build is foamboard with paper siding and stripwood doors and decks.


The contraption on the roof is a generic version of a dust removal system made from a soup can, straws and a milk container lid.


Have fun and posts some of your builds. Dave

Dave', it is becoming more and more difficult for an armature builder like my self to compete with your spectacular builds'...Here is a little tractor repair and sales, track side structure I just finished up. It will be receiving a "Willani Lumbar and Mining Company" emblem, in honor of the forums long time member and friend to all members, The Geezer.

Guff - Wow Chow!
Ted, nice tractor sales. Is that a piece of real shingle for the roof?

Very nice, Dave.

I scratch built his little track worker's shed as part of the 'Shed, Shack, Shanty' Challenge two years ago.

Beautiful work John'.

Thanks Dave'. I did indeed like the Geezer very much. His ROBUST demeanor and sense of humor is surely missed here on the forum'..

Yes Bill, that is real shingle. Samples from Lowe's roofing department'...
