Glad to see you back John.....I think I'm in need of a little inspiration and a big kick in the pants also.  ;)


Thank you, same here...it's funny, on the ZOOM call, I went on to explain that I planned to paint the fascia black and I had a handful of structures to build and then realized I was "overstaying my welcome" on the trains. But it was nice that a couple people asked great questions about whether there was a geographic area being modeled, etc...good visit by "civilians"  ;D


Hope to see you and other SBG's soon.


John

Good to see you posting again John!  I was wondering what you've been up to.   ???

Greg - once I get vaccinated and can visit Tom's again I'd be happy to give you a kick in the pants.  I'm sure Tom would too.   ;)

Heck, I'd do it for free. Shot or no shot. 8)

John,

Hard for me to believe, but as passionate as you were, that you stayed away so long.

Yeah...that's kind of me...all in or all out (at times)...I've also made vows to not beat myself up over stuff like this. I've got other stuff on my plate that can't be put aside, so...All good.

It's good to see you back. I'm in the process of getting my shots.  One more to go. Are you planning on the Narrow Gauge Convention this year?

I was going to message you about that...I think I'd really like to make that happen!

Hey Cuse:

Like I said it sure looks just great on the layout. Keep up the good work.

Thank you Karl...I hope to get something going here soon. I've got some kits on deck...
-FOS Pendleton Marine
-Bar Mills Doverton Wharf (FSM tribute) w/o the wharf
-Sierra West Woodcutter's Shack


All 3 have designated spots on the layout and not room for much else structure-wise. Obviously, endless opportunities for detailing, rolling stock, and scenery. I've got a nice river scene that needs doing. Still haven't patched and painted the fascia (that could jump the line considering it's potential impact to ease ratio)...I'm pretty good at making to-do lists, it's the next part that I get stuck on.

Nice rainy hobby weekend...second in a row. I'm actually making some progress on Pendleton's Marine. Long way to go but it's been a while since I've built a kit, so I feel like I'm re-learning each step. Another great Foscale design, IMO. I got a bit careless with the big "painted on" sign but I think I recovered with my usual heavy handed weathering style. This time I was using a sponge rather than my usual go-to of drybrushing. The tear at the bottom will be hidden by a loading dock and typical clutter castings. I really like the sliding door and the other metal door on this wall. The kit is (unofficially) a background flat. Several of Doug's kits are quite linear but aren't technically "flats"...This will definitely not be viewable from the rear, so I'm going extra lazy on that wall.

Did I suddenly forget how to upload pics or is something fishy here?
