Hi Larry, Just about recovered from the show this last weekend. I must say it was one of the best shows I have ever attended, there was some thing for everyone. I have yet to visit the mine museum next door that will have to wait until my next visit. There are several videos on u-tube on one I am seen taking photo's, this was on the Friday, at about 5,00 pm it rained for about 30 mins the dried up again. we have had no rain for over 2 months and the ground is a bit hard. The attached link is to the RM Web site have a look at Midland Moles pictures, he took as many as me. http://www.rmweb.co.uk/community/index.php?/topic/102906-tracks-to-the-trenches-2016-2018/

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=miG1zGBOX_w

There were several people over from the USA and Europe. The Saturday night after the show closed the Speeders had a go up and down the line (2 came over from France and there owners were in French Uniforms) The Aircraft is a model with 3D printed motor. The replica Tank was built for a film, and has a Ford Van engine to power it.

Thank you all for stopping in to visit and thanks for the links Neil.

I received a very interesting new product today from a new company called foggy mountain models.

This has to be the best premade brick sheets I have seen on the market.



This picture is begging to be modeled with the brick.

Hi Larry,
Your work is progressing well. I admit to be a little confused as I haven't seen a layout drawing but I've seen where there will be a canteen/kit shop, and gun emplacements, and now a bridge hiding the emplacements. How does it all fit together? Is it just the one module or is there more? Regardless, I'm liking the trip through history and the eye-candy. My Great-grandfather was driving artillery trains (horse-drawn).
Cheers,
Dave

Hi Larry, Glad you liked the videos and links, there was a lot going on at the event





This loco has just been rebuilt and it was its first running in turns - it had some problems being new so sat by the shed most of the time.


No 303 has just been rebuilt and returned from Australia and is still running in and has only been run for a couple of days, and it had a small boiler leak at the end of the event



I have pictures of the kit that was used, just let me know what you want.

I left you a question in the lounge. Where are you getting the figures from?

This a really great project you have taken on.

Jerry,
Sorry I did not get to your question in the lounge.
Figures have been the biggest challenge to this proposed layout.

I will be doing a post at some point on figures.

The last figure in the picture of the bricks is the only WW1 figure from Duncan Models and they come with the canon. I have five of the same ones at this point in time.

The soldiers in the brodie helmets in the earier pictures are modified Buffalo landing figures, details on modifications to the figures will follow.

The officer types are all pheonix figures from the UK and are converted from WW2 figures.

The batches of WW1 figures I am waiting on, from the UK are from a company called PLM and some from wrightlines. Neither company has a web site.

Les Davis is also working o some 3d printed figures.

Larry, I've been out of town for a couple weeks and I'm just getting caught up. I'm impressed with what you've accomplished. Your work is fantastic and I'm learning interesting things about your modeling theme.

George

Thank you all for the links, photos and positive encouragement.

I was able to get the main structure for the farm house finished yesterday. The brick sheet is glued to foam core board supported with a basswood frame.

Nice job Larry!

holy hell! you flash a picture of a structure on the 19th and by the 22nd it's built! you really made short work of that! looks great with the brick paper too. can't wait to see it finished.

if you suck at playing the trumpet...that's probably why.
