this is the issue it was in:

Narrow Gauge and Short Line Gazette for May/June 1980


if i am not mistaken, some of the RMC issues from the late 50's also had captioned pictures (Dick also wrote for RMC)


thanks for your help

micro layout

is there a better picture/ plan or Dick Andrew's drafting board layout available than the one on Carl A's site? years ago i had the Gazette which featured this in Dick's narrow gauge column, but it seems to have lost itself. any pointers greatly appreciated

all three have thier merits.

i think your adhesive might have been at fault with #1. and did you cut it into lengths to allow for shrinkage (just like the prototype)?

#3 does look a bit haggard, but in the right environment maybe very much at home.

keep us posted how this develops.

how high is the table?

if that's a variable, maybe construct telescopic legs like a transit tripod has. (but of course four of them!)

proportion must be the governing factor. if we make everything prototypical, the layout will engulf the entire house. so introduce "selective compression" and make the footprint of the building fit your space. then pick out the detail you want to include (fenestration, doors, et al) and fi...

bending the topic

that's how i was taught to stack it on my first caretaking job by the property owner. let the air circulate and the wood would dry evenly and quickly. but my intention of comment is to displace the rumor that "the simpler times" have all but vanished. as pertaining to this thread, we have ...

'Conductor, hatch "down"'

i think we're dealing with "fung shui" here. the attitude of the front panel is IMPLYING a tripping hazard, therefore, it may become one. sort of like looking at your foot instead of the log when splitting wood. that axe is going to go right between your toes.... http://www.reference.com/s...
