Gnew to Gnattering

Postby Roger Jenner » Tue Feb 12, 2013 3:41 pm

Hello all,

My name is Roger and i have been lurking here for a loooong time, i may be a serial lurker.

I have been modelling in 009 and 0:16.5 for some years but was initially inspired to 'see the light' and go Gn15 after seeing Richard Andrews superb 'Ruggin Manor' at Expo Narrow Gauge, Swanley in 2005.
I immediately took up 'lurking' hear on The Gnatterbox and have looked in most days since.

In August 2008 Steve Bennett started his 'Simplicity Sidings' tutorial and the die was cast, hence my Simplicity Sidings does Richard Andrews clone (Orchard End), sorry guys but they do say "imitation is the greatest form of flattery.

It was during my last conversation with Steve and Gerry (Expong 2012) that i was 'shamed' into actually joining the forum instead of 'peering over the gate'.

Thanks to you all for the inspiration, help and entertainment that your posts here have given me, long may it continue.

Gnood modelling to you all,

Roger

Welcome to the Gnuthouse Roger, glad you've finally decided to take the plunge, the more ideas the merrier :)

Hi Roger,

Perhaps superfluous to say it's great in here as you know that already, but it's great fun to mix in too.

bestest,
