Frank,
It is just me so far. Some friends have offered to run the layout while I get some relief. I only live 1.5 hours from the show so I can recruit my wife and daughter if need be.

Thanks Larry C

Hope to see you there but as a vendor, don't get much time to look around sad to say.
Only thing it needs now is a airdrome module :)

I indicated yesterday that the top middle module was in design stage. A lot of head scratching has been going on since then on how to make a Bell tent. Lucky for me there is the internet and I found a 1912 article on how to make one in 1:1 scale.

Here is attempt number one with available material at my beach place.

Thread, printer paper, a sleeve from a scotch bottle and glue.

I should be able to knock off what I need quickly now that one is figured out.




Sorry Rich no time to build a bunch of planes.

Great looking tent Larry. Seems you got it mastered OK.
If you start getting into WW1 planes, that would be another whole learning exercise.


Regards Rob

My current build.

Larry looks like you got the Bell tent nailed. Years ago I used to do historical re-enactments and had the chance to go inside a bell type tent. It was really something to see; although it was 1812 era but close to what yours looks like. Good luck.

Larry,
I like how you have fit all those different areas that involved the train. Will you be showing actual pictures with each area?
I bet that tent will create a lot of flap.;-)

Larry, you've done a great job of getting the printer paper to sag like canvas.

The tent is amazing. What brand of scotch did you use? Hopefully when you do another one you will give us a little step by step.

Great, a new excuse to buy scotch.
Excellent job of creativity and modeling skills.

Thank you all for the kind comments on the tent. I have a second attempt in process and I will post progress pictures and a how I did it shortly.


A friend of mine has been patiently building this Petrol engine for me as I have been slowly acquiring the parts from many different places.
It is stunning so far. I hope you agree.



I spent the weekend chasing My Wife's desire to move but did get some details worked out today for one of the scenes.

The base of the model, cab and hood is etched on 0.018" nickle silver. There are some brass, 3d printed parts and other scratch built details Newell has added.
