HiB(Hornet-in-a-Box)-Gnew Layout

For discussion of the issues faced when building a model or layout - how to replicate wood, what glues to use, exactly how much weathering can a Gnat take, a good source of detailing accessories - you get the picture, I'm sure.

HiB(Hornet-in-a-Box)-Gnew Layout

Postby Matthi205 » Sat Nov 21, 2009 1:02 pm

I'm making a layout for my loco,"Kim":
Image
It's as big as a shoebox,glue isn't even dry.And yes,that track in back is N track.When this is looking better,Carl may put it in one of his scrapbooks.Wagons and locos I may use:
Image .
I also did a test with rails.The result:
Image
Left is plain track,middle is the same with every second sleeper cut off,the right one is "handlaid" justlike Glen makes it.

PS:The Hornet is to come in something like 6-8 days.

PPS:That HUGE book in back of pic 3 is a "Linux" book.It weighs something around 1-4 kilograms. :D

Railroading Literature I got till yet:

Linux Book vs. Layout ( :lol: )Book is littler than my oldest Railroading book(the railroads book weighs something around 5 kilos):

And,if someones XP PC crashes because of a weblink I gave,it surely:1.does not belong to me 2.I got VISTA(Viruses,Intruders,Spyware,Troyans and Adware) so this does not affect me :P :P :P .

Hey there :D interesting project you've got going.

Linux book will outweigh layout by, oh, what, a factor of 5?

Got me curious as to what game board under your projects is from.

What linux distro do you have there, looks to me like it is SuSE, or perhap, OpenSuSE ?

Just curious, I am running (along side OS X 10.6) Xubuntu 9.0.3 on a 24" iMac.

Have used rpm based distros in the past, like Red Hat/Fedora, but prefers the deb distros like Debian or Xubuntu. If you want to drive yourself nuts, run Slackware (my first distro was Slackware 3.4, still have it, sitting on the shelf).

Forrest,game board is froman old tank game (tanks got lost over the years)
Wayde,I'm using only Debian...I hate Ubuntu because of it's layout (and,because I am more liking consoles than a graphics system).
PS:Me likes Commodore C64. :P And,as the touchpad of my old laptop(900Mhz PPC Mac OS X 10.4.11) didn't work correctly I installed Debian(because gentoo didn't go and it was the only other Linux for ppc then) and played NetHack. :D I don't like nor GNOME,nor KDE,noranything other than a console because it slows the computer down.And there's still w3m...Now I have Windows (but I still don't like it)...

Sorry for continuing the Linux thread...
The reason I am running Xubuntu, is because the gui is XFCE, which is a bare bone gui, not too different than w3m. On my old PC box, I used to run Libranet, which is Debian with XFCE interface.

I have to have X Windows up and running, since several of the apps I use requires it.

KDE, GNOME, Enlightenment, ect....Just so much eye candy, like Microsoft Windows.

Uhmm, back to modeling.
