Val's in the Academy
Congratulations Val. That post was great .
Congratulations, Val, on a job well done.
You guys are ambitious...
I was aiming for maybe one a month! LOL
Thanks again, and congrats Val!
Thanks for the work on rebuilding th academy!
This is very timely for me and I'm sure it will be valuable for "generations of model railroaders to come".
Well, it is almost the end of the month...
With all the excellent modelling done in the past several weeks, what sticks out as the next addition to The Academy?
Any suggestions / seconds?
Here are some ideas to get you thinking...
HOn30 0-6-0 teakettle steamer from shaygetz
Just another water tower by jimmybeersa
Fullard Glass Co. by the prolific Matthyro, along with his J. BROWN coal mine.
Good discussion and pictures about Street Light Telephone pole by eightyeightfan1
Ballasting Track on the PoorFork RR by Charlie, as well as Tunnels, Rockwork, & Ground Cover on the PoorFork RR, and Forested Hills & Fall Foliage
And Ray Marrinaccio's Restoration of AT&SF #3780 in N-scale.
That's just a sample! Please nominate others that have helped and/or inspired you in the past month!
Thanks for the nod, Andrew!
Here's a good one I found this morning, on bashing an N scale CP Rail SD40-2f. It's by davidmbedard...
Thank you, Andrew, I appreciate the thought that my work can help others enjoy the hobby.
We need your help!
Will anybody second any of these choices for The Academy?
Which inspired you this month? What was the most helpful? Which taught you the most?
I'll second all of em'!
I second Tyson's second. I think that they all were good. I am partial to the Matthyro scratch builds but the rest have appeal for other parts of the layout.
The next addition for the Academy will be Jon Monon's tutorial on the "Gimp" a photo editing (Free) program. As soon as its ready, I will pop it in.
Part 2 of the tutorial by Jon will soon be taking place.
Water Poured, It's a River by Gary H Pfeil has been added to the Academy, congrats Gary.
Well, another month gone already!
Any suggestions form all the work (and there is a bunch!) done in November that stands out as the next addition to The Academy?
What do "WE" make with this and that .
My proposal for December:
''0n30 turnout kitbash' by Lighthorseman.
Excellent tutorial in easy steps, excellent photographs, and useful for all those 'n30' fans - also for the conversion of N scale turouts to H0n30.
And I second Ron`s motion :thumb: For December
Steve`s O N 3 turnout kitbash
