Very nice job Greg.

I actually really like paper modeling and have done so since WW II but the models are so much
better now. I sneaked in a few on my 1/24 scale railroad and most people can't tell the
difference. The problem is that no one makes paper models in 1/24 scale and I have to buy HO or O
scale and then enlarge them. Try "Scalescenes" they have some free downloads and their structures
are outstanding, usually with interior detail.

Thanks! Bob & Carl.

Bruce, I hear ya!
It's like I've reached a time summit already,(I'm 53) and it's all downhill from there now .
And it's picking up speed, as we roll further down that slope!

Greg, I always thought that the coin funnel was a good model for how time speeds up as we get older. Time, just as the penny, starts slowly when we are young, then speeds up more and more - just before we disappear into the vortex.

Dave, I grab a basic shape from off the web. If you Google "fancy signs", you will get plenty of templates.

I then put them in a photo editing software package and add the text and re-size, etc.

I finally finished up both the Quarry Branch of the Jersey Highlands RR and my kit bashed version of Walther's Glacier Gravel.

WOW, Some really nice projects this year.

And Greg, is it brick or is it paper? That's realistic looking.

Feels like I'm looking at Cannery Row. Wrong coast I guess. But the atmosphere is there.
