Nothing to watch !

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.

Welcome to the Gnuthouse. Glad to see that you jumped right in. There are a great bunch of people that hang out here and share ideas and suggestions.
The critter and wagons look really good so far. What materials did you use to construct them. Keep up the good work and again welcome.

Very nice work indeed. I like the weathering and that is a perfect loco chassis. Welcome.

Hey there, those work. Those 4 wheel On30 cars are ones I've not seen here in US, then again, haven't much looked at On30 for a bit.
But, yes, the making of things is a big part of the appeal of Gn15.

I very much like it. Do the arrows point to foamcore board? Many of those older 10" railroads have boxcars that are tall. I'm counting on making one like yours to house my Deltang radio gear.

Hi there,
it is funny, no matter what is used as a chassis ,box cars in Gn15 always look as if they don't belong.
Here is my version on an old HO chassis.

Mine is a mix of wood and card.An loads of MUCK.............

Happy Gnottering

Hey Chris
I realize that you are the greatest, but that picture looks real. Am I too old to get this trick photo stuff?

Simply place a few scale figures in the picture and the audiencen can tell, if it is in a believable scale more or less or not.

The Yellow Critter and the wagons do not look too convincing yet.

Have Fun

Thanks Christian. Those models look wonderful and your technique is excellent. What program do you use for developing the weathering and the wood sidings? They look great!

Thanks Juergen. I admit I got fooled by Chris's photo, not only because of the weathering but the real car in the background. My excuse is that I am old!
