The photos show what a good decision it was on page 10 to build the ďbubble out,Ē providing appropriate room for barge and tug. Also, by sticking out on one end it sort of pulls in the observer, putting him or her in the midst of the scene.

Jim, that's what I thought you said, "finished in the next 2 weeks". AND you're gone for the next week. Nice guy.

True Mike but it makes one of those dreaded leaning shelves.

There is a lot of talk about fine scale modeling on the various forums and magazines. This production epitomizes that term to the letter'.

CONGRATULATIONS!!! Gentlemen for demonstrating to us, real, Fine Scale Modeling'...

Ted, thanks for your kind comments! The next three weeks will really make a big difference on this layout as we jump into the latter stages of scenery and detailing buildings. This has been a fun project and we will be tweaking it a year from now:)

Ted, I guess we're in the right place for "Fine Scale Modeling".

Iíve had this O-Scale building in my parts bin for some time. Itís an HO upsize to O building I made for a friend that didnít work out so well. I made him a proper one and kept this orphan.

So it just sat, besides I had no interest in O-Scale till now. I decided to drag it out fix the errors and get building. I still havenít decided what it will be manufacturing, dispensing or storing or what the surface coverings will be. I made tin for the over the track portion but the rest is a mystery. Humm, maybe stone on the ends would look good.







Hereís a peak at the HO version on my Wreckerís Reef layout.

Frank stone would be nice.

Looking forward to the build. Maybe you can build a Wreckers Reef in O-Scale to keep the HO one company!

Why do you keep the lighting valance inside the layout if I might ask?

Jerry, Iíll try to find some stone then.

Martin, the idea is to make this a switching layout. Jim was concerned about the valence being in the way of people leaning over to uncouple cars and bumping their heads on the valence. Thatís why itís so far back.

Ted, when you gottaí go . . . .
