Great layout. The Gn15 should add a new dimension to it.

They look great Andy.
Are you going to put a light inside the building so they get noticed? Or does the natural light already get in there?
And how about some stains on the concrete floor around the railway tracks?

You have got a great solution there! The only thing I can suggest is that maybe you want to consider another two lugs the at roof level height. It will most likely work great like you have built it running manually, but if you are going to put in limit switches (and they are micros switches) dependi...

The whole harbour scene is coming together nicely. It will be a true masterpiece. The concrete abutment on the end of the bridge is great, complete with the steel rebar out one side and the green stain on it. Excellent work! http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8406/8979633384_c7d64bbc00_c.jpg DSC00427 by ...

Hi Daniel,

Thanks for those very kind comments. I am astonished at the quality of your work. Its first class! Those water textures are so good. And the speed you get things built... Almost every day I log on there is another great update from you. Keep them coming :D

About how long does it take you to make each tree?

Wow, those levers look good.
And the great thing about gn15 is you don't normally have large junctions with multi arrays of points that all need changing at once, so you can do it by hand.

Here is my very simple idea for your elevator in the middle (as you have suggested). The elevator car is circular, and in the very middle is a hollow tube running down through the centre of it. At the very top of your tower is a small pulley wheel. At the very bottom of the base is a hole exactly in...

I was going to ask about the base. I thought later that maybe you could put a sheet of glass over the top. This would be a nice smooth service and hard (so the wheels don't wear tracks in it over time). But if you want a ripple surface then this won't achieve the effect your after. (unless you can l...

Wow Les.
Great idea. Haven't seen that done before.
Have you tried adding more weight on top just to see if that dampens the jerkiness (or makes it worse :? ).

Wow that looks good!
How many paint layers are there to get it looking like that? Two? or more?
Once you get some gloss on top its going to look stunning.
Great idea with that large rolling wave effect.

Welcome Peter. That is a massive instalment you have there. Speaking of Gnomes, I seem to remember a Gn15 layout on this group about Gnomes. It was based around a pottery factory, who made Gnomes. And they got transported between the making shed, the drying shed and the painting shed. Or something l...

I've been looking at doing something similar for my new project (the cat litter quarry and refinery...no, really :oops: ). But looking at the prices I think that scratch building is the way to go....I mean, how hard can it be? Couple of rollers, some old bike inner tube, one of those 3rpm 6v motor....

I thought the joins were deliberate, not a mistake.
Yes they do look like strata.
So paint them so they stand out rather than trying to hide them and it will look natural.

Thanks for the ideas of the buttons. But although they are big, they are not dramatic enough for me. :lol: I want a big T handle plunger (like the top of a bike pump) just like you see in the old movies. With two bug wires running under the layout. Adrian: yes pity you had thrown that out. I would l...

I've had this joke sign on my layout for a couple of years: http://i209.photobucket.com/albums/bb41/Gn15Glen/Underground3.jpg Now I was looking for some public interaction to add.

I've found it looks so easy when you are looking at someone else's photos (enlarged several times real size).
But when you try to make those little fiddly bits yourself, then .... :evil:
