You must have been rich before you started this one.
Thanks for sharing.
No, but i would like to see it if you can find it.
I'm only rich in that I have an understanding wife.
Is your turntable a comercial product or your own? I will be looking for a longer turntable (for big steam) to replace my Arnold turntable at some point.
I believe it was from Bowser Mfg Co, but i don't think they do much in n scale any more.
Ray, what did you use to make your mountains?
I haven't been able to read every post by all the guys, but your layout is absolutely awesome. One of the advantages of having space to do a layout is that you can have one like what you have.
Wish we have basements here in Dallas.
Loved the pictures and will try to catch up with the posts from the others this week-end.
Start off with aluminum window screen, form to fit. Cover with plaster cloth. Then I mix hydrocal to a thin mixture, so to be painted over the plaster cloth. I add a small amount of black paint to the hydrocal for a base cover. Mix only enough to be used up in 20 minutes. Using cold water from the fridge will extend work time.
Ray your layout is simply amazing! I keep going through all of the pages looking at all of your pictures, Amazing! Can you post some more pictures? PLEASE!
I have been working on the airport and cement plant. Here are pictures of my progress.
forget the last one, its a old picture
Ray I love the progress. If I could be bold as to make a suggestion, the airplane landing is a great action idea but wouldn't something clear as a support be much better perhaps a clear straw or even hang it from some real thin fishing line. No disrespect intended just a suggestion. Belg
The support for the plane is copper tubing. The reason is, the props turn and I need the tubing to hide the wires for the motors. I'll paint the tube to match something, maybe the grass.
I found some invisible paint at the hardware store and painted the pole with it. Is this better?
Great approach shot Ray. Since seeing the DC3 at your airport, I decided to get Flight Simulator 2004 which has a DC3. I have flown it a few times and am getting the landing approach as you have shown. Great fun when I need a break from model railroading.
Great stuff, Ray!
The airport scene is just great!
Ray, I just LOVE the mixture of aviation and rail. (My two passions).
Can I obtain airways clearance to come visit in my personal company jet? (one of my favourites, a Caravelle)
Runway length may be a problem, but this little Heller "Cadet" kit (in 1/200 scale) doesn't take up much apron space at just over 6" long!
