    Ola,

    Try this: when getting into the RR Line, use the following link: http://www.railroad-line.com/forum/active.asp

    This gets you to the active topics. Sometimes we've seen odd quirks when coming in from the other links.

          I love the both strutctures, and am really looking forward to follow the construction of the Nitpickers Bar. I guess mr Nitpicker might besides his ambitions come from very remote areas of Germany, where his dad was a railroad workshop inspector after a lengthy army career, which ended in strange circumstance where he was indeed shot in his right foot. I guess the Herr Nitpicker Sr carried out his mission at the work shop in very much the same manner before he was this time forced to move to New England after a lengthy strike among his workforce. He may have become a skipper ona fishing boat but vanished in the seas in mysterious circumstances in a storm. The ships crew returned safe to the port and reported that the captain was attacked by mermaids and disappeared in the raging seas before any of the crew could react...... I guess Nitpicker Jr, combined his other hobby, moonshining and built the bar though as his father, he is a detail freak....

            Finally some time and energy left for modeling!! So I have cut out and assembled the Nitpicker basics.. I used some laser clapboard I had lying, some of which was used to demonstrate wall painting in the DVD, thus the coloring... I'll decay the hell out of it with pleasure! This will be the most run down and ugly piece on the layout!

              I like it, it's looking good.

              Is that strip wood or strip paper siding.

                It's probably, ".. I used some laser clapboard I had lying, " suggests it's wood.

                Cheers

                      Which is truly appropriate as nitpickers get nothing done.

                        My line of thought exactly Bob... The place will be boarded up, out of business, armchair lounge upstairs full of cobwebs, the high horse stable smelly... rot creeping in. Leo, you wouln't have been welcome if it had been open ;-) Ralph, it is premade clapboard... takes as much time to do as the cardboard with paper version, as you have to add bracing. Looking forward to painting it tonight.

                            That's not always true. This nitpicker just works very slowly (too much time complaining on forums? [B)] )
                            Seriously, though, I've learned stuff from nitpickers, constructive criticism that identifies alternatives, different perspectives, etc, can be helpful, and respectful back-and-forth I think has real value.

                              Got a little more done tonight... It will be impossible to do anything during the weekend, with the concert, guests staying etc... but that will give the paint a chance to dry ;-)

                              I put on some roofs, a railing, made a crude front side too, and then gave the joint a good paint-over... the paint job will need refining, but the general level of decay is established for now.

                                Beautifully run down structure Troel's.

                                And, as usual, packed with personality!

                                Cheers, Mark.
