Hi all.

I will, in weeks to come, carry on with this module, but for now, just wanted to let everyone know I was safe. At present, we still have no internet, so can only reply every few days when out and about.

Just a quick update to let everyone know that myself and all that i know (so far) are all OK after Christchurch's 6.3 earthquake. Although much small than our september 7.1, this earthquake (on a newly discovered fault line I believe) was much closer to the city and far shallower. it caused substantial damage in the central city ( including the total destruction of two multi story buildings) and also many of the burbs. The death toll last I heard was 113, but this is expected to rise to over 200. Many of the older buildings were OK or saveable after our sept earthquake, but are now piles of rubble.

On a positive note, Tellynott lives on, with some repairable damage. I will post pics of the Tellynott damage when we have internet back on at home, and an update.

Its a good day to be alive.

Cheers, Mark.

Gee, Greg - see what you've opened up now!!???

Thanks, Mike. I actually took my wife to a triple showing featuring Eraserhead as one of the movies for one of our first dates. As she managed to sit through two of the three movies, I knew it was true love!

Kimbo - if Eraserhead is in your drawer, treat yourself to a viewing of Peter Jackson's zombie comedy 'brain dead'.

Cheers, Mark.

My wife’s reaction to the cannery workers: “That is truly disgusting”. And she has seen A Clockwork Orange, in German.

I think you’ve succeeded, Mark.

eraserhead. holy cow. the baby in the drawer. that's one of the wierdest films ever made.
mark_dalrymple Posted - 07/09/2020 : 02:41:02 AM
Thanks Greg.

No, Kembo, I've seen it too. And pretty odd it is too! Up there with fear and loathing in Las Vegas and eraserhead! Those guys in that photo might look like Alex and his droogs, but I can assure they have hearts of gold, and all that blood is definitely from fish!

More soon, cheers, Mark.

i thought i was the only sucker that saw that movie.....

Mark, sounds like you've got your hands full there.
Your cannery workers sort of remind me of Alex & his droogs, from "A Clockwork Orange"

Thanks for that Dave.

I also found some pipe fittings at Model Tech studios.

Well - progress has been very slow the last few weeks. I have been busy moving our landscaping plans forward, along with a few special family and friends occasions. I am re-leveling the formal lawn in front of our house, enclosing it in beech hedging and creating wide perennial boarders. I have about 80m3 of soil to rotary hoe up and move with my 1 series tractor bucket!

Below is a magnified photo of some workers I painted up for my cannery. I cut a shovel up and reattached it as knives.


I'm hoping to find time to get the momentum going again on this project.

More soon, cheers, Mark.

I've been talking to Ed Traxler, who has the rights to at least some of the 3D printed pipe fittings that Rusty Stumps used to sell. Ed is an O Scale modeler, and what he's designed and printed works well in 1/48. But we discussed the problems with smaller scales. If you want to be able to insert the pipe into the fitting (as opposed to a butt joint), you end up with a piece that is just too small and fragile to print with most 3D printer technology. https://www.micromimesis.com/

Mark,
The Goodrich and the Ruggs Manufacturing are great looking buildings. I always enjoy seeing the old weathered buildings and your work is superb!


Thanks, David. You have been exploring!

Those were two of my favoutite builds (although there have been many favourites).

I did a bit of work on the second room in the barn yesterday. This room will house Shadowlands. I'm hoping to get some NZ native tree making lessons from my friend, Neil soon. He is a master, although he works in 1:32, so will have to scale down his techniques.

Cheers, Mark.

Mark, nice work. David, Plastruct may be another source for piping parts.


Thanks JBVB.

Also - thanks David for posting that link. Those William Bros fittings look quite good.

Cheers, Mark.

The ovens add a lot to your building. I’m glad you were able to fit them in. You did an excellent job cutting out the circles.


Thanks very much, Mike.

Yes - the circles when quite nicely. You do need your dividers done up nice and tightly so they don't slip.

Cheers, Mark.
