Troels,
Your modeling is absolutely stunning...as usual.

Troels, not to make your life more miserable, but I second this.

Give Malcolm Furlow a run for his money.

Arthur and David, the very few sketches I've done for a possible future layout, and the reference material I've gathered, are all somewhat in your suggested theme area :)

But not even being able to find time and energy to complete the present layout, the prospects of building a new are slim :) But it would be fun!!

Troels,

Like most paintings, a layout is never really finished, is it?

I too would love to see what would come out of your creative mind if you were to do something in a mountain area. Heck, I'd even settle for a couple of 'sketches' if you would have the time to do a couple and post them. If we can't talk you into doing a second layout, how about a diorama or two? I'm positive that your imagination is so far ahead of anything most of us could come up with that it would be an outstanding scene set. I'm kinda surprised that Frederic has not already teased you with these ideas. If you were to ever post a sketch or two or do a second layout or diorama set, you know that the work would induce more than a few of us to try our hand at keeping up with you.

No way :) If I ever get to build a new layout, I'd want to have some aces up my sleeves :) The sketches are only ideas for possible stuff to model, not the final design, and not fabulous!!!... And I'd like to avoid the "a little Furlow, a little Allen, a little..."-look too. So I'll need a lot of planning and drawing. Perhaps even visit the northwest... AND the present layout will need to be finished AND find a new home before anything can happen :) Patience!!!

I can't speak for Kirk but planning for me is just like dreaming. Nothing is real until work actually begins. Then like everything, it's subject to change.
But I do know that 'forcing' yourself to do a project like our hobby, is a receipt for disaster.

Inspiration is not something you can force. It has to come to you. However I must admit to 'stealing' some 'inspiration' from Kirk's fine work.

What ever you do Kirk we know it will be worth the wait.

But Troels, not everyone has your artist's eye for shapes and composition... So what are just doodles to you can be a big inspiration for the rest of us.

Troels, Your simple sketches are like model railroad pornography to the rest of us.

Wonder of all wonders... I've actually been in the shed... modelling!! This evening I suddenly got the urge to get things going again, gathered some materials and walked resolutely to the shed. A makeshift table was the box from Frederic Testard, that carried Dave's Corner. I had the sketch for Germeroth Stones, the last structure (I guess), and some black matte board. It was wonderful to finally get a knife in the hand again, and quickly the substructure was assembled and tested in place on the layout. A couple of hours of pure bliss

Hi Troels, Great to hear you were enjoying yourself and it looks like it will be another nifty building.
