Good morning.


Tom, happy us, too.  We get to watch you build it, right?  Hint, hint! ;D ;D ;D


Snowed again last night, ground is white, truck is covered.  Good day to stay inside and model.

Morning,

No matter how long I hold my breath the snow is not going away. Only two floors left to sand and re-finish … yippee!

Morning all,

X-mas came early for Tom!   ;)

Back to work for me.  :( The week off was nice but not long enough.  I do have a long weekend coming up.  In fact, all of them are long weekends between now and the end of the year.  :D



Have a great one!

Good morning! Have fun with the kit Tom. It's cold and snowy here, too, great modeling weather.  I think I'm going to have to go out and put the plow on the tractor.   ::) I was trying to wait and get one more leave mulching session in. Oh well, the leaves will be there in the spring.  I hope everyone has a great day.  From the F&SM:

Morning All,


John, NO layout has ever been photographically "dissected" like the F&SM and I don't recall ever seeing a flaw...Honestly, that's absurd considering the size and scope of the layout, structures, details, etc. No matter what angles, photographic tricks or volume of pics...it's otherworldly.


Bob, I love your pics...today's looks like a Mike Confalone modeled scene.


Busy work week... if not really busy, it's certainly pivotal. If things go well, I'll hopefully be making many more of the conventions and SBG meetups in the next year. :)


Hopefully, I'll break ground on priming the Sierra West details on my current build today or tonight or someday.


John

That's an interesting point!  The Gorre & Daphetid was photographed a lot by John Allen, but of course he knew where and how to photograph the layout to show it at its best.   A lot of the photos I've seen of the F&SM are taken from the same/similar viewpoint, but each of us picks out something they're interested in to capture in a photo.

Late check in again for me. Love the photo's, conversation and the fact that I am not in Michigan with the snow. Congratulations to Michigan for getting the upper hand on a good Ohio State team. Nice to see the conference starting to become multi-team strong again.

As for me, took my sister-in- law to get her gallbladder removed. Happy to report all went well. Now hope to finish up scene of sawmill for the local museum. They have been patient  and I have my own hospital adventure Friday so best I get it done.

Hope everyone enjoys this great day.

Afternoon crew checking in. Spent the morning with my mother at the hospital for a scheduled procedure. Can't wait to see you tackle that kit Tom.

I'm ready to start it; however, the cardiac surgeon is supposed to give me a surgery date some time tomorrow. Hopefully, it will be the first of next year but it could also be next week.

So, all is on hold for this one for now.
