    Gregg,

    Congrats on getting one of your photos in MR Tackside Photos. You should get a feature article and possible inclusion in Great Model RRs in the future. Your work is truly stunning!

    I thought the picture in MR was nice, however, for those of us fortunate enough to watch your progress in this forum and see a much greater represenation of your efforts, a single photo does not convey the quality and magnitude of your work as a whole.

    Congratulations on having the photo in publication and keep up the great work.

    Dave


    Dave,
    Thanks for the feedback and positive comments. I will eventually get back and see my Feb MR issue.

    Trent and Dave: Thanks for the congrats about my layout photo in Model Railroader's February 2010 issue, Trackside Photos section. I am presently out of the country so have not seen the pic and associated writeup. Perhaps someone can post a photo of the magazine page here so I can see what they did? Dave, I will send you a PM about your request.

    Peter: Yes, this Butchers Way kitbash/build is a fun one. I look forward to getting back and working on it.

    Thanks again,

    Gregg

    Gregg,

    Good to see you photo in the latest MR.

    Any chance for a visit the last weekend in January? I'm going to be in the bay area attending the LD/OP sig meet and visiting my old round robin group out there for a few days and if able would like to come over and see the layout. If possible maybe a couple of them to tag along also to show them a beautiful looking layout.

    Look forward to seeing more of your work on here and hopefully in the magazines too.

    Hey Gregg. Man your layout is very inspirational. I was wondering though, how you get together with ( Mr.Lucas)?? to build these great models. Do you build part of the diorama, and he builds the other part? Does he do the scenery and you the buildings? I was just a bit curious on how two guys can get together and come up with such beautifull works of art. Thanks......

    Jim and I have now been building together for a few years. We have complimenting skills and there is no doubt in my mind that our joint efforts far exceed what either of us could do individually. We communicate weekly or daily, depending on where we are in the build to help keep things on track, which is important since we live 1000 miles apart. Over time, we have learned to anticipate each other’s needs (which can be different for every build), making distance inconsequential.

    But, let me try to get to the heart of your questions, that being can building on a partnership basis work and how can it work best. I firmly believe that partnership building leads to better results, due to leveraging joint capabilities, increased creativity (idea generation and the opportunity to discuss solutions) and increased energy to overcome "saturation", where a person stops working on a given item because he/she becomes tired of it.

    Here are a few simple pointers if you want to team up with someone for a build.

    - Any two builders can make this work, provided there is frequent and open communication.

    - Complimenting skills will help.

    - The work split can be firm or loose and will naturally evolve to leverage personal skill sets and preferences.

    - The person who is owner of the build has the final "vote", which would resolve design/idea conflicts.

    You may want to give team building a try, for I think you will be surprised by the results. You will have improved quality, added enjoyment and be able to accomplish much more in a shorter period of time.

    Gregg

    P.S. Our FSM Butcher's Way kit-bash/build is well underway. Here is a peak.

    Here is one more Lynn. This one reminds me of how much track detailing I must do.

    Everytime I look at your photo's it kind of makes me wish I went with a freelance road instead of prototype one. Your layout is just outstanding!!

    Andy,
    Thank you. I thought long and hard on choosing a prototype or freelance road. For one you model "what was", whereas for the other you model "what could be". It was the artistic freedom that made me choose freelance.

    Photo #2 ... Terrific little mini scene.

    Thanks Peter. Placing Wrisley Paper in this location (Thorndyke was to go here) was one of my better decisions. It provides much interest as one walks into the layout.
