Nice build Robert... I though at first James Bond had dropped onto your layout, but this pilot doesn't appear to be covering up a tux under that flight suit!

Thanks for posting! The simple materials make the idea of building a layout less "foreboding."

Robert,

Things are progressing nicely! Your calling it a diorama it appears to have some operating capability. Okay, maybe it's a working diorama. :)

What material did you use for the base of the diorama's display?

Thanks for the info Bill.

1/8 inch is the thinnest I've seen on the shelves at my local DYI here in the U.S. Bending without breaking that thickness of Hardboard appears to be quite an achievement!

Bill,

I really like how things are looking at this point! The curving of the hardboard is brilliant... I need to abandon my thoughts of using mat board.

How thick is the hardboard you are using? And what tools are you using to cut that hardboard, may I inquire?

Welcome to the forum!

I can't answer your question about what any one else is building... but I can answer the question are you "Gnuts for trying?" Yes, and that is a good thing... a very good thing.

A control panel that looks to have been created by Wallace himself that operates... nothing.

All these ideas might make it onto other folks layouts at some point!

The harvesting the rivets and then loading them into a car parked on the track would be needed too. I understand that rivets do require speedy transport to market or they go bad very quickly. To prevent their going bad... and bad rivets are awful... transfer to a refrigerated car might be necessary ...

Those are really fantastic! They could both be set up to run as Gn15 too, not only sitting on the layout as static diorama pieces!

You say that these are commercially available kits, from where may I ask?
