Still Inspired

...One question - how did you do the tree? ... The tree on Saxon's Warehouse was made using the rope on a stick method. Rather than retyping the construction process here, just click on a link to my blog. http://ilovenarrowgauge.blogspot.com/2010/01/new-thought-on-old-problem.html Oh and " Bro...

Model Building Lights

I wanted to add some 4 foot fluorescent lights to the outside of a 1:24 scale building using one of those fluro simulators. The type that make the bulb or LED go flicker flicker until it actually starts (or if you want, never start). Has anyone ever used white LED's to make a scaled down version of ...

Oh I also forgot to say. I don't believe that these modules will work with Normal DC. So all your locos must be DCC Chipped (even thought your controller will support 1 DC Loco).

Hmmm, It seems like time to get back to doing some more modeling. I've been busy studying and haven't had time to do anything else.
I do check this forum regularly and when I saw that someone had posted something new in the Gnine pages I was quite excited.
All I can say is ... stay tuned :D

On the subject of using brick paper

Where do most of you get good quality / realistic looking brick paper suitable for G Scale ? * Download it from a commercial site and Print it yourself ? * Purchase pre-printed sheets? * Take your own photos, clean ...

Discovering new techniques

The great thing about being part of model train club or forum is that you get to try out new idea and techniques. The postings of members models and layouts seems to...
