  • By the way Geezer, it's strange seeing someone build a house now, here in Or. you can't find a project underway. The two lumber yards here in Florence are deserted, two years ago they were so busy you couldn't find a yard guy to load your truck. I went in for some lumber and three guys were standing there wanting to help. I also noticed the shelves in the barns are empty and with over 750 houses here for sale in a town of 6,000 I don't think any new ones are in sight for a long time!

    Your place is huge and looks like it is going to be a real showplace, can't wait to see the finished product and your new train room....Jerry

    • Well Jerry....I got money I ain't folded yet!!!


      LOL! Thats not true!!.... Fact is, we decided to build now because the lumber is down about 30% and most contractors in PA are having a time of it. We will retire here, so why not make the investment? We are hoping that when President Obama saves the nation, things will get better and we will realize that we made a good investment.....I will keep posting progress shots....We are looking for a big dump of the white stuff tonight...All Stay warm....

      • Morning! I managed to make a little progress on my Gn15 critter over the weekend:



        It's got a severe case of the "diesel measles" ... aka "diseasels" ... or at least a dose of "rampant rivets"

        I'll be working in [;-xmas]'s workshop today, watching the snow pile up outside ... no trips to the post office today! Hope everyone in the midst of the snow storm stays safe & warm ... and maybe gets a little extra modeling time.
        Cheers,

        Dallas

          • Wow Dallas that critter is never going to fall apart. It is a very cool build almost makes me want to try GN15.

            Snowed here in Charlotte and closed the schools. Already had to help build a snow man and had a snow ball fight. Now to dry off a little.

            • But where do they put the coal???? :erm: Dallas this is a great looking build and great modeling. Dallas here is a link that may be of interest to you, a close friend of mine builds in 7/8 scale. Very much in the same vane...http://jeffreyspikemodels.com/.......Jerry

                  • the link worked ok for me. I just had to get rid of the /........jerry part. Basically I got rid everything after the .com. I am unsure about the rules on posting a link to something like that, but I dont see a problem with it. If you were trying to drumb up business for your buddy that would be one thing, but just showing a critter your friend built, even if you have to click though the site to get to it, I see no problem with.

                      Jerry, I assume the picture I linked above is the link you were trying to point Dallas to.

                        Great job reminds me of Ole rivets the first GG1 built that was riveted instead of welded.

                        • That's the one...I inadvertently tagged on my sign off I see that now, thanks for the heads up, thought I'd screwed up there.

                          • Good evening, everyone.

                            Jerry, I enjoyed the link you posted. It was an easy guess to find what was wrong. The site of your friend is full of interesting models, and some of them could be quite inspiring.

                            I think I've finally done the trickiest part of my windmill (still have to paint it, which will require some care since the whole thing is certainly quite fragile, but it shouldn't be as difficult as assembling it). Then, on to the saguaro cactus... I have a few ideas (one of them being to buy some from Scenic Express, but it would be a desperate act...

                            There are many people making lots of progress these days on the forum. It's great to see this.

                            Have a good evening, all.

                            • Hi All -- Well, we ended up with a "pleasant" amount of snow here ... hope y'all fared well.

                              Jerry -- Thanks for the link ... got that sorted out ... the 7/8" stuff is really amazing ... also some great O scale structure kits on that site.
                              Cheers,
