A newcomer to Gn15

Postby Robatron86 » Tue Mar 31, 2015 8:58 pm

Good evening all,

My name's Rob and I am interested in giving Gn15 a go. Phew! Now I've got that off my chest....

I have dabbled in many gauges over the years (N, OO, OO9, HO, O-16.5 and G), and I'm currently happily married to HO, but I am interested in large scale detail in not a lot of space, hence the curiosity about Gn15.

I apologise in advance for any ridiculous questions I may ask.

Other things I enjoy: reading, watching tv, playing bass guitar in my band, working on classic cars and building model WWII fighter and bomber aircraft.

I look forward to meeting you all.

Rob

Hey there! This fascinating scale and gauge combo is playing in theaters on most major continents.

Hi Rob,

As you've hopefully spotted we're a pretty relaxed bunch in here, so ask anything you like, model just as you see fit and post plenty of pics please!

Meantimes, welcome!

cheers,
