Thinking a bit more:  I don't see how the bass signal would get from the on-board sound chip down to the subwoofer...  So to quote Emily Litella, "never mind!" :-)

Has anyone tried a subwoofer under the layout to get better bass?

Nice!  I have 2 sets of CIty Classics company houses to do for a scene on my RR.  I modified one by closing in the porch and turning it into a bar/pub for the workers :-)  (That was pretty common from what I remember in company towns.)

Good news from Tom!  I found out my cousin's family all tested positive, they had some mild symptoms. One of their daughters is an RN, so they had some in house expertise during quarantine :-)

I did a bit more work on the turntable kit yesterday. 

Right now I'm on hold for T-Mobile, they keep sending me reminders about my bill, but I can't log on and have no clue how to pay the bill.  The signal strength is better than ATT, but I never had problems with ATT's customer support.

Well, I got a bit of good news/luck today.  The appliance repairman had a cancellation so he was able to come today instead of 2 weeks from now. And he figured out he could cannibalize a part from the broiler to get the oven working.  So we now have a working oven (and I can broil outside on the egg.)  Wife has started the pumpkin cheesecake for tomorrow.  If it's not raining too hard, I'll do the turkey on the grill as planned tomorrow, but it's good to have a backup if I don't want to try to light the grill in the rain.


Best of luck to Mr & Mrs Tom as they work through Covid, and condolences to Marty.

I've used the cheapo brands of thick CA, but I've found it's worth buying the hobby shop good quality thin CA.

A set of San Juan (formerly Grandt) or Tichy reefer hinges work well on the icehouse doors.  Remember those were heavy and insulated (just like on reefers.)

That's nice!   I like kitbashes, particularly when they're so well conceived.

A suggestion I've tried on warped resin castings is to put them on a flat (stone) tile in a warm (150 degree F) oven, and let them sit there for 20 minutes or so.  The stone holds the heat and provides a flat surface for the casting to relax onto.

You can get odor-free oil paint thinner at craft stores.  A good thing for a 40% off coupon!  I think that thinner tends to dry more quickly, too.

I spent some more time looking at the floor plan.  From my North American perspective, the house is "upside down", with the bedrooms on the ground floor and the living space on what we in the US would call the 2nd floor and the rest of the world calls the 1st floor.    MBR and BR 2 have en-suite, but the other bedrooms share a bath.  Bedroom #5 is pretty small.  The Utility room gets its own bathroom.  I think Gary has a good idea about turning Bedroom #4 into an expanded closet and maybe sitting space.  Or you could carve a hall closet out of part of Bedroom #4.   It's not quite clear to me what that space above bedroom #4 is for.  I guess it could be used as a dining room.   The sink in the study is also strange to me...


Of course, all of those ideas cost money, and everyone is very happy telling you how to spend your money :-)

Here is a link to the house brochure for anyone interested.                  https://www.rightmove.co.uk/properties/74473725#/

NICE!  I'd be tempted to replace the sauna on the 3rd floor with a powder room and use that as train room/workshop :-)

Seems to work okay.


Well, glad to know that I'm the only person with this problem...
