Afternoon all,

A Spanish company called AK Interactives not only had their paints for sale, but some of their books. I bought two. One book is called "Realistic Wood Efects" and the second book is called Diorama F.A.Q. Both books are great. The Diorama book is humongous. 559 pages humongous and covers everything. This is going to take some time to digest and seen what I can apply to the layout. Lots of cross pollination of ideas.

It's funny you should mention that Frank.  I got both of those books for X-Mas.  I took them with me to show Tom (ACL1504) yesterday.  I have a feeling he'll be ordering the big one pretty soon.   ::)   BTW - Congrat's to your grandson and his team on their accomplishments on the court.

Workbench time today.  Dinner out this evening and then returning to a friends house for a quiet game night to ring in the new year.



Have a great one!

Doug Foscale sells the books Frank mentioned.  I bought a set of three from him and I'm still digesting to use Frank's term. The third book that Frank did not mention is Extreme Weathered Vehicles. Lots of great new techniques and the pictures are fantastic.  I'm sure Doug won't mind me mentioning that he also sells the A.K. products that are used for most of the techniques in the books. Your welcome Doug. ;)


While I'm back on the forum posting - Tom we started our day 58 degrees colder than you did. Just sayin! Okay,  back to the train room.

Happy New Year's Evening,
Boy it doesn't seam possible, another year gone.

I posted this on RR Line and meant  to post here too...
The Expo team stopped by George's on Thursday, Jimmy had to wait on the sidewalk... not really, he hung out at the pool.

George has been really enjoying the layout, he seams Very excited about having lots of time for scratch building.
Here are a few new additions and some modifications to current structures..

Oh, and a little fooling around as Doug points-out where George should have put a structure... all in fun.

Great day, followed with an Expo meeting, more news soon!
