Thought I would bump this back up and in doing so it might inspire me to get off my a** and get back to work on it! We will see.

Not yet!

"Yeah, good idea! Get back to work! Maybe you'll inspire me!

Well at least some good would have come from the bump then!

Been a busy year so far but I'm determined to get back to work on the layout. The building I've been working on needs lights (never have lit a layout before so I have nothing on hand ) and I've used that as an excuse for why I haven't been working on the layout. Well today I ending up in a different county where they have a Radio Shack and picked up several different kinds of the smallest 12 volt bulbs they had. So now I'm outta excuses . We will see if this gets me going in the right direction again, I'm getting tired of people asking me how my diorama is coming along .

Geez, for a minute I thought you might also be changing scales over to On30 after reading Eddie's post.

Glad to see the thread back in action.

Yeah John, I have noticed that quite a few people have changed scales in the last year or two. I did look at On30 about a year ago but it's just toooooooooo large for the room I have to work in. Choice of scale isn't what is slowing me down, lack of motivation is . I get this way from time to time, usually it passes and I get back to modeling again.

I really don't think I'd ever change scales.

The only scale change that I have been temped with is G scale Garden railroad. You don't need any space indoors for that and I have five acres outdoors. But I won't be doing anyting with G scale untill I fix some cars and pickups that are in the yard. My seven year old daughter helped me pick out all these lovely smilies. yea.

Your daughter has good taste Jon! I have looked at garden railroading also, while I have 5 acres as well it is mountain land and I fear the cost of putting in the right-of-way would be to expensive.

I am making progress on the lighting project , however the batteries went dead in the camera and I have no spares so this one pic will have to do for now. I will try to get to town tomorrow and pick some up.






This little lighting project has been a real learning pain-in-the-a** , the first problem is this building has been used on 3 layouts (counting this one) and has been built and rebuilt and at no time was lighting ever part of the equation. It is amazing how many different places light can leak thru on one building! From now on when I build a building I will build it as if I'm going to light it even if I never do!

After I spent all that time putting all those window panes in I was a little that in normal room light you had a hard time telling they were even in there, however they can be seen a lot better under the lights so now I feel better about doing it.

Well I got new batteries for the camera, but alas no new photo skills. My night photography pretty much sucks. I think a better camera that has manual settings so I could hold the shutter open longer might help also. Anyway this is where I'm at with this building. It still needs to be "planted" on the layout and needs a few more little details and some minor touch-ups but is pretty much done.
