New to the Gnotters

Postby Radbourne » Sun Jul 20, 2008 7:43 pm

I know from Mog that the forum isn't very active, but it's nice to know that there are local Gn15'ers doing the same thing. I'm fairly new to this, so I'll start by saying that I've go some track down on a baseboard and a few items of stock from Sidelines and a couple of locos. Oh! And heaps of enthusiasm!

What's everyone else working on at the moment?

Welcome to the Gnotters Martin! We are a small, but friendly bunch although we don't often get the chance to get together.

Modelling wise I have spent most of my time building in O9 rather than Gn15 but just lately the tides are turning.... my latest micro project is described here: http://forum.gn15.info/viewtopic.php?t=4352

Enthusiasm is definately a good thing - good luck with your ideas and don't be afraid to share them. Who knows, you might give us all the boost we need to gather the Gnotters together again!

Cheers Colin!

I hope I'll be able to bring something beneficial to the Gnotters as well as all of the Gn15 Gnutters.

I'm still a beginner in most aspects of modelling, but I'm learning fast due to a great deal of help from everyone here

Welcome !
This is going to get very confusing.. alll these Martins :lol:

Look forward to seeing your makings and doings.

As for my modelling activities.. mostly I been having a go at 3mm and 009 lately.

Although I was doing a little Gn15 show and tell and my first visit to the 'local' 009 group last night, and reminded myself how much I like it!

Hi Farreste (and all other Gnotters)

I'm also new to the GnOtters and gn15.. infact this will be my first ever layout. My parents had an O scale casting business in the eighties but I've never modeled myself other than for work (Theatre Designer)

at the moment I'm building my first layout called The Holbrook Moor Light Railway

... Holbrook Moor lies inbetween Duffield Bank and Holbrook village, it's also the village my girlfriend grew up in so i've often walked around the area and duffield bank

to avoid confusion how about you change your name to Martin... would make it a lot easier for us to remember names

It's that sandshifty chap confusing me with his casual use of the Martins! :D

My first foray into any kind of railway modelling was in Gn15.. a pretty good place to start, or end up, I reckon.

I think it's a good start! It's much easier to model in this larger scale compared to O-16.5-although it's less forgiving if you get it wrong!

i work in 1:25 as a theatre designer so 1:24 is a nice scale for me... that said as you know I joined the 7mmnga as I originally planned to go that way.

Still gn15 is "cute" and that keeps the girlfriend onside... almost
