Not that I would ever want you to stop building and shooting pictures but ever thought maybe one of your extra large paintings of the whole Coast Line RR, I'm sure it would sell. Just a thought . Tom

Great to see a new chapter opened.

This just gets more stunning with every picture.

Troels, your photos are inspiring. I didn't post earlier, just admired, but I couldn't pass up commenting on the second photo. I cannot explain what makes it so great. But the effect is stunning. The light in both photos looks so natural. Thank you for sharing. Bob.

Beautiful photos, great modeling! Although, I'm a bit surprised to see an "adult novelty" shop in your little Maine village: "Harnesses, Saddles & Whips". ;)

Troels, thanks so much for the wave making video. From the very first pages in volume I, I have been fascinated by your work along with everyone else here. Waterfront modeling has always been my favorite, and through the years I have acquired a lot of model photos to serve as inspiration. But when you came along, you took it to a level that I had never seen before. Your waves with the breaking action, the coloring, the foamy water behind the wave....it all is just so realistic. I guess the combination of being an artist plus a sailor for so many years certainly helps. My favorite water area is your lighthouse scene. The waves, the structure, all just fantastic work. So again, thanks for the "how to" video on making waves. I have been patiently waiting for about 670 pages now and it was more than worth it!! JD.

Thanks guys... all is not quiet again! Our house has just been delightfully full of family and visitors recently, so it has been difficult to find modeling time... this will change from tuesday ;) Tomorrow the australian modeler Rod Hutchinson and wife will visit the layout. Another visitor recently was the american modeler Mark Paulson, who yesterday posted this report on his blog:

Today we spent a very pleasant afternoon with the australian modeler Rod Hutchinson and his wife Julie... for the occasion I had tried to tidy a bit, and had installed some more of the black "skirt" beneath the layout (to conceal more mess)

Always nice to meet fellow modelers!

Great photo Troels of the happy tourist and his wife. Did he try to convince you the layout needed some gum trees and a few kangaroos? I don't doubt we'll hear all about it when he eventually comes home :)

Troels, I'm really enjoying volume 7, and also enjoyed watching you "making Waves" video.
Thanks for going to all the trouble to document it.

Nice pic of Rod & Julie. They're members of our local division of the NMRA, so I'm looking forward to catching up with them, to hear all about your wonderful layout.

Regards Rob

The stretch of water I recently finished has really opened for some new views... Morning at the salt merchant's warehouse in Crabapple Cove. In the background the tiny water mill by River Kotcha.

Rod. I think Bill Black is also travelling in that part of the world. It must have been a great experience seeing the layout "live" and meeting the "Master" painter.
Have a safe journey back.

I've begun renewing the landscaping a little in the Olson's Wool area, where I will also build the stonemason's workshop. Here´s a little lineside view of Olson's. Amazing how much light grey dust one can vacuum from the grass! The scene is slowly getting the spring colors back

Perhaps you should fix the steam leak, or stop doing cylinder blowout over the finished scenery! (The smoke from the locomotive looks -very real-)
