  • Geezer, I'll take a photo of the dolly when it is completed, probably later today ;-)

    Teaspoon, living in an 1880ies house, I know the feeling. We have found old booze bottles (used to be an IOGT lodge!), very old Donald Duck magazines, newspapers used under linoleum floors etc...

    Rob, in spite of some rumors I'm really not a competitive person. And I do build more than one building in two months anyway...

    Rob II, You can post whatever you like! I could supply some extra thoughts and corrections if needed! I know there has been some trouble finding equivalents on the other side of the Atlantic.

    • A lot of old miner's cabins in the desert had newspapers and magazines pasted to the walls, to cover cracks and gaps and provide a little insulation. If you're lucky and come across one that hasn't been completely vandalized, you can still find large bits of these on the walls, often dating back over a hundred years. I saw some newspapers from the 1890's on the walls of a cabin once.

      • speaking of it,I remember back being kid my grand parents told me that there was a shortage about everything after the war and that includedwall papers. So many home used old news papers as temporary wallpapers. that was in Finland after WWII...

        • My first effort with the new Panasonic GH2 camera... a video of the vessels by the big wharf. Great fun to work with HD, although files are quite big ;-) Remember to choose HD in the menu!

          • Troels,

            The video is excellent. The sound was low, I had to turn the speakers to full volume.

            The flying sea gull is cool.

              • as someone who just stumbled away from nitpicker's wondering why it's not open, i have to say that these vessels were painted by someone that has obviously spent a good deal of time on the water. now if you wouldn't mind opening the bar, i need a shot of baska droppar or two along with a nice pint of ale.

                  The sound system IS low... a murmur of wharf sounds... just enough for ambience. I'll turn it up a little for future videos.

                    • Troels,

                      When I came home I was ready to jump in to the machine shop build.

                      Unfortenately, I switched on the TV and the movie, "The Train", was on. Well, I sat and watched it again, for the 499th time or so it seemed.

                      Anyway, as it finished, the camera panned over the crates of paintings the Germans were trying to get back into Germany. Cezanne, Renoir, Dufy, Matisse, Lautrec, etc. I thought about you and your artist work.

                      That is one of my all time favorite flicks.

                        • Troels, very cool video. I watched it in HD with full screen. Excellent quality and I enjoyed the background sound. Coming from a coastal community, I can just imagine the sites and sounds of an era not so long ago. Thanks for sharing.

                          Cheers,

                          Tom

                            • The home looks lovely - everyone needs somewhere to live! I like the idea of it fading into the treeline.

                              I loved the video - it looks so real!

                              Can I also say thank Rob for putting all the paint names up. I watched the DVD just to get the names and wrote them down somewhere very safe...

                              Hope you have a productive modelling weekend!

                              • Kathy, you reminded me to thank Rob too for the effort! I might add that it is wise to stay from all colors with the additional "Hue", "Tono", "Similar" in the color name. This is a fine name for using cheaper pigments or mixes, look quite the same, but most often behave quite different in mixes. Plus you pay for crap really. Even well renowned makers do this... beware! Also some British manufacturers (most actually) live on their renomme from better days, while lowering the quality significantly, sometimes to ridiculously overpriced s***.
