Interaction Enterprises CPR #2 toolhouse
Posted by Glen Haasdyk On 07/19/2017 At 10:56:15 PM
Working on a small toolhouse that I got from Interaction Enterprises about a year ago.

A few years ago I built their large CPR #3 toolhouse, added an interior and lit it.


This one has no windows and only the double doors. I should be able to knock it off in a couple evenings work.

Even though it is a small kit I'm pretty impressed with the detail that was added to the structure, individual rafters and interior framing.

I started with staining all the walls in a pine stain from Testors model FX.

then I painted the exterior walls and trim with Ceramcoat Barn Red. This is my standard railroad structure color.
The trim is made of a thin resin board (also laser cut)

and the interior framing. This too is a resin board. I didn't paint the interior framing so I can see the contrast.
Rapido Switch Stands
Posted by halrey On 07/19/2017 At 4:44:40 PM
I though it would be a interesting project to light one up...
Well, I will say it's not for the soldering challenged, damn nano LEDs are crazy small, .02"x.039".
Rapido made the switch stand kits, which I guess were offered with a switch motor but they also sell them with no motor, they were never intended to be lit. It wouldn't take much to make them operate.

South River Model Works Kits
Posted by Dave S On 07/17/2017 At 8:26:43 PM
I am looking for links to South River Model Works Kits, especially the dioramas built by a modeler who went by the name "Gregg W", I believe. He was a very accomplished and active modeler who built South River Model Works kits and combined them in unusual ways into dioramas. Seems like he stopped posting his builds and dioramas about 4-5 years ago. I recall that he was developing a railroad that featured a small hillside port town with a lighthouse in a harbor. Hope someone remembers him and can help me find some links to his work.

Thanks, Dave S Tucson, AZ

Help!

This may be the wrong place to post this but wanted to get the biggest exposure. I apologize for this!
Since I have been a member here I have used Photobucket for storing and sharing my photos. As of June 1st Photobucket has decided to charge an exorbitant amount of money for users to continue using their service.
Has anyone else experienced this problem?
Can anyone suggest another web hosting site I can transfer my photos to.
I have two clinics in the Classroom, that I will have to repair the photo links to. I'm afraid my other posts will have to suffer.
Thanks

O Scale Buoy
Posted by halrey On 07/06/2017 At 9:15:50 PM
Hi All,

I needed a few O scale buoys for my On30 project (which is moving very slowly by the way) so this is the result. I also cut an HO scale one just to see if it would work, I am still waiting on some fiber optic filament for the HO version, the O scale one has a 3mm slow flashing LED, which looks good.

Oh, and I need more seagull poop on the built up one...

So I wanted to make white decals...
Posted by TC On 06/23/2017 At 9:15:29 PM
I wanted to make my own custom white decals. After some research, I found and purchased an Alps dye-sub printer. That's a start, I guess.

Anyone familiar with the graphic design process for creating and properly sizing custom decal art (in white or any other color for that matter)? What computer programs are used, etc., tips & tricks...

Any advice or instructives would be welcome.

Hi All

I took the Canadian Railway Conductor course last Spring and during the course I was having some initial problems learning the various railway signals. Being a computer "nerd" I decided to write an app to help me (it helped at lot).

In case you folks are interested in having a look it's at http://www.rcp.ca/mobile

Thanks a bunch
Rob

I am signing in as a guest because I lost all access to the forums due to the recent 10 day loss. Every time I reregister it tells me that my user name and email are already being used and to enter something else. What gives.

Does anyone know what could be used to make a hinge that would allow a very small HO scale door to open 180 deg.It's only 18"W x 36"H.
