    Congrats, Shamus on an excellent tree-making article in the May RMC.

    Also, for all you On30 nuts, there is a good article on kit-bashing the Bachmann Shay.

    Another great issue from RMC --- if you don't read it regularly, you should. I consistantly find more of interest in it than in that "other" major mrr mag.

    Shamus is in the news again?

    Way to go Paul, most written guy I know. I will be on the look out for RMC this month.

    Keep up the good work.

    ezdays Out AZ way

    Congratulations once again Paul. I've never seen a copy of this mag, so I am assuming that it is distributed in the US and that one of our LHS will have it. So I will make a special trip to one that I think should have it on their bookrack.:thumb: :thumb:

    Hi, Paul,
    My copy was in the mail last night, and got a chance to read the article. Well done! I'll have to look into getting some of the materials, and trying the process.

    Shamus I had another question. The core of the tree, which you say to shape with the file is not fully shown in any of the photos but I 'm assuming that it does taper to a point at the end, correct?
    Thanks Pat

    Hi Belg,
    Most are nearly to a point, but a lot of the very tall ones I left semi flat as though they had been topped off.LOL nearly put a man at the top with a saw, but he would have been off the sky backscene height which is 5' off the floor.
