I'm back too . . . but I'm not sure I ever really left!

Hi everyone!

Some of you will be familiar with my name, as I have been hovering in and out of Gn15 for some years now :D .

But now I have completed my last (read this as FINAL!) HO NG layout, Gravel Road - http://gravelroadlayout.blogspot.com.au/ - I'm devoting all my modelling efforts to this GNew scale! 8)

I've also been busy on other things . . . a career change (from print journalism to bus driving!), a city change (my wife and kids and I have moved out of Sydney to Wollongong), caring for aged parents, doing up an old house, and helping my gals through their final years of high school (my eldest is now a junior officer in the Royal Australian Navy, doing her degree at the Australian Defence Force Academy in Canberra).

But the call of fellow narrow-minded modellers always rings in my ears! :D

I have always thought the warmth expressed in this group was the best I've ever encountered!!

Welcome back Pete 8)
A Gn15 version of Gravel Road would be great but at 1155 x 245mm you'd have to use both arms :lol:
I like the way the back fence acts as a natural scenic break but then the trees give it extra depth 8)

Needs to stop procrastinating and start modelling

Just had a read about your Gravel Road layout Pete, very nice.
Couldnt help myself, had to work out what the GEMME formula gave for 16.5mm gauge and the bigger size might well work for a Gn15 version.
Certainly got me thinking :roll:
