Well, the paper model ship has arrived and it looks great. If you wish to follow I will be
posting on the "other than railroad" section of the forum at:

PLNT stands for Phillips Lake Navigation and Timber.
There is a Phillips lake South of Bangor Maine and it just so happens a railroad used to run along the shoreline.
As the name implies there will be a lot of waterfront and some timbering... all based very loosely on Maine narrow gauge railroads... only this time the railroads survive and expand.

Bob, I agree with Terrell!
Look forward to seeing you back at work soon, on whatever project you wish to share!

Looking forward to whatever you do, Bob. I know it will be great.

Thanks Pete, I will be watching to see the developemt of the PLNT Line (BTW, what does PLNT Line stand for?)
Greg, about that little ship model. Sadly, I have put it aside for now in the same stage
of construction as it was when you saw it. The taking down of the LP&N RR has taken up
ALL my time and I have just started trying to re-box my 1/24 scale car and truck collection
for possible sale. I can see that process as taking all my time for a while. Then there is
this. Back as a kid growing up during WW II I did a lot of paper modeling. It was when most
materials were hard to get and paper modeling became a BIG thing. I have kept a love of
paper modeling ever since and dabble in such a model every now and then. I have always
wanted to do a paper model of a sailing ship and while there are many available, most
are more "toy-like". I think I have found the one I have been looking for, published by a
Polish company and have ordered one to see. Will keep you posted.

I would like to thank Bob on this forum for his generosity in entrusting the PLNT Line with many of his buildings. Each building will fill a special place on the layout. So special in fact that in the coming weeks and months I hope to create Roberts Port using these buildings and the steamship Sofie as the anchors in honor of Bob's legacy.
Bob, you are a wonderfully talented and generous person. Thank you!

Thanks for your nice comments Dave, Frank, Carl, Rich, Bill, Greg, Jerry, and Mike, I appreciate every one.
Mike, it surprised me that many have turned into individual displays, I had not thought of them
that way. It is a great pleasure to me to know that so many have ended up that way.

I have “M. Hohn - Blacksmith” on display in our living room and I love showing it to guests. Thank you, Bob!
I’ve never considered doing the same with my own models; no comparison.

Bob looking forward to your next project!!

Bob, glad to read that you have found good homes for most of your beautiful models!
I've been showing off to my friends & neighbours your beautiful models that you graciously gave to me.
Everyone one I show them to is blown away by your workmanship, and level of detail that you've added to each of them.
I don't get the same level of reaction when I show them my models.
Just wanted to thank you again for this wonderful gift! I will treasure them always!
How's that ship model coming along that you were working on when I visited with you?
I would love to see some photos of it, if you get a chance.

I am not getting out of 1/24 scale model building, just getting rid of the layout. BOB
More memories yet to come :)
||Posted - 06/09/2019 : 07:28:28 AM
Just getting back to your thread again, I see that you have dismantled your previous layout. Thanks for the memories of building such fine models with us. I hope whatever you choose will be just as fabulous.

I second Franks comment.
Whatever you do next, just have fun!
||Posted - 06/08/2019 : 7:13:40 PM
The best to you Bob, thanks for the memories.

Very nice ending to a beautiful layout. I know it was kind of sad to tear down the old LP&N but the demolition also gives you room to start on a new endeavor!
Wishing you best of fun with your new railroad.
