Very Quiet around here
« on: November 28, 2012, 01:58:21 AM »
Hey guys,
Ive been off the forum for a while. Noticed it has been very quiet lately. Either everyone has been to busy modelling or just not much to tlak about.
I have been out for about 6 months now chasing other hobbies (film photography). Decided that i needed a digital camera again for model railroading so hopefully ill be getting some things up to share again since we all love photos.

Modelling wise i haven't done much. I made a buch of code 55 no.5 turnouts using a fastracks jig. Dont have the space fpor the layout but enjoyed making the turnouts to use some time at a later date. Maybe i should make a test track on a shelf or something to learn hand laid track.
On the other hand i have been slowly working away on a buch of dioramams. Getting surouded by detail parts. way to many to paint.

Hope everyone has something to share.
Cheers Adrian

Good to hear from you. The only thing I have to share is that I've bought a few turnouts made on a Fastracks jig (Light Iron Turnout Co). I don't trust myself enough to make them on my own. Hopefully things will pick up around here. I need some inspiration.

Hi Everyone,
I haven't doing much modeling lately, but I have been doing alot of narrow gauge photography and photoshopping! If it's alright with the moderators, I can post the link to the forum where I have been posting my photos.
I'm still planning on doing a layout, but I just haven't had the time to begin. And I can't decide on a plan! I hope to start a layout in the next year. When I do, I'll let y'all know.
Enjoy,
Blake

The fast track jigs dont take to long to learn. Good soldering iron helps and i think using code 70 would be easier. Have to think about the time you spend making them though when looking at cost.

Blake would be happy to see some of your photos. everyone like pictures.

Adrian,

I've just got back to some modeling again after a long spring/summer break!  I'll add some recent photos to my Slate Run thread.
