Ed,
I enjoyed the publication and have applied for membership. Your work is exceptional and I especially enjoyed the interweaving of the paper buildings.
Thank you so much for sharing!

Dave,
Thanks. I keep trying to 'explain' to people that getting stuck on one material .. plaster, plastic, wood or paper .. you are missing out. Multi-media is really the way to go .. use whatever is appropriate. Take the cardstock clapboard for example. In O scale the cardstock is pretty much scale thickness .. but I use stripwood for the trim. Paper/cardstock can warp .. maybe .. so I use it as a veneer on top of a foam core .. uhh .. core (sic). I use 3d printing but would love to have access to a laser cutter and ability to do brass etching. Going with the strengths of each media would be a blast . the hard bit being .. well able to do so. While laser cutting is beyond my means I intend to dip my toes into photo etching at some point. Fun stuff!

Ed, I definitely like your multi-material approach, but don't dip your toes in the photo etch solution! :)

I'd like to dip my toes in photo etching. (not really) But would like to try that medium of brass work since I use a CNC mill and manual lathe to do my brass engines. Adding the etching process would be a great improvement. Someday.

If you scroll down the linked to page all the way to the bottom you will see eMag-January 2015. That is the first issue.

I have been working with Walt Gillespie of Rusty Stumps on creating masters for him to use for RTV molds so he can make resin copies. So far .. hasn't worked. The last .. Version 3 I think .. well .. didn't work. I have since uploaded a Version 4 with thicker walls .. see how that goes. In the meantime, Walt sent me the Version 3 resin castings and I figured I could still use them by carefully arranging them so the problems won't show. The problem I ran into is that simply .. I have no room for them next to Jukes Boat Rental.



I decided that I could create a small platform/dock next to the structure to stack the rowboats. If interested I posted the process to my blog - Jukes Boat Rental - V

Here's the structure where it is at this point .. I still want to add some things .. a pivot arm/davit on the end pole, bumpers, cleats etc. .. but need to make a hobby shop run today.

Uhhh ... as far as I know YouTube is YouTube and unless something is labeled private you can watch. What do you mean you can't watch anything? error msg? something else?
