Good evening , is 3 months with only a few hours of sun called the Great Depression  ;)

Just retire, then everyday is Saturday.

That's exactly what I meant , but is another 10 years away.

Following along , I like seeing what people can do with plastic models.

Found another great vintage Michigan beer ad...definitely using this one!

This one is definitely the best one .

Thank you Curt and Steve, wish I had more Saturdays  ;)


Great job on the structure. It is turning out to be a show stopper. And, all the casting will really bring it to life.

BTW, my eye doctor wouldn't make me special glasses for the hobby. He said he didn't want my eyes to get used the close up lens. He said to use the opti visor with my regular readers.

I really don't see the difference. I'm still looking through a magnified lens. ???

Tom ;D

Thank you very much Tom. I'll have to consult my eye doctor about that issue , although like you I don't see the difference.

Morning All. I received some new toys from Artitec yesterday. I bought 2 of these Cat D-7 loads all assembled and painted, I figured I'd look for a mid western railroad Proto flat car at Springfield to mount them on. I also bought this Ruston Bucyrus shovel in kit form. I will probably do a build thread on this later in the year.

Thank you Raymo for doing your part in boosting Dutch economics  ;)

Wow  John , what a bunch of great layouts, thank you so much for showing and sharing this with us.

Following along , I love the Bock and the Cream Top signs.

Primed the metal castings.

First paint for the metal castings.

Decks for the staircase and frame for the loading dock roof.

Roof installed and sign placed on loading dock. More weathering later.

Stair treads installed.

Good evening, not much to say , I guess I'll just post another Eurospoor photo.


Nice job on the water tank. The strands of wire is a neat trick I'll keep in mind. You must have a 10X Opti-Visor to work in "N" scale.

I need one just to see your thread. ;D ;D ;D

Tom ;D

I think strips of styrene work best for larger scales, but in N-scale it's hard to cut styrene thin enough.

I had glasses made for my hobby , they are a sunglass frame with very strong reading lenses in them.
