1. Ladies & gentlemen, I would like to announce that there is a new photo gallery section. You can create your own personal photo gallery (to include setting up your own albums). You can even post videos. You can also post and share photos in the galleries of others (if that person allows such), as well . ENJOY!!!

inspired by cnw1961

    Very cool Joe! It seems you get much better each time you scratchbuild! :) Let's see you replace some plastic buildings with your splendid Creations! ;)

    EDIT: What's the red car in the foreground of your last shot? Who makes it?

    joeshoe, never doubt yourself, as I've said in other threads, one has to tell yourself that as far as you are concerned you are the best. If you didn't take that chance, you wouldn't have that cool structure that we all love- I'm very inspired by it.

    Recently I tried installing a decoder into one of my locos and after working for 10 minutes the damn thing blew!! Oh well, I'll just try again!

    There ya go! Scratchbuildng is fun and the more you do it the better you get! One of the challenges for me is cutting out clean looking, squared windows. Looks like you've got that down! Details like those cool signs really add to the overall scene.
