        after 300 or 400 pages of gaping at troels' methods, style and finished product i have to say that the coast line rr is the finest looking model railroad i have ever seen. simply a beautiful creation of a world that is so believable one can almost smell the sea air and the rotting smells that accompany fishing ports. this is truly an amazing piece of work and troels, you are a consummate artist and i consider myself fortunate for having been able to watch you create this masterpiece. i humbly hope you will continue to document this incredible effort.

          Like this one Troels. Are you going to paint some seeds for the fruits?

            Chris, I will go back to the fruit store with some painted mustard seed fruit... I was just so eager to make the rough version of the Nitpicker Bar before that. I also saw some nice fruit crate castings in a Gazette, and will perhaps order a few... My hope for the coming winter is to finish building the remaining structures for the layout (about 25 or so), then go back with scenery and all the lovely detail work in the years to follow. I like to spend a lot of time making details only, like I did when I "finished" the big wharf for an article... But I might also take a section at a time (I'm not too structured really)

              Can someone point me in the direction of the original 4-volumes of this thread that have been archived? How do you find these so that one can review what has gone on in the past? Scott

                  I wasn't able to get into the archives from the search engine.

                  Maybe the dutchman can help us find the the first one and post the links here.

                    Hey, guys,

                    I have been putting each volume in my favorites as it begins.

                    Keeps them kinda handy.

                        Troels,

                        Sorry to hear about your injury, Im sure all the guys at the meet are bummed. I love this run down look. Im hoping soon we get a chance to get the DVD and it will contain info on how you color, paint, build...the whole scenario of how you approach a structure from design to painting etc. I have been spending alot of time on scenery and want to get into some structures soon. On another front, I just switched my On3 loco over to battery/RC power. It is fantastic...no more wiring, shorts, gaps, stalling! Here are two links to my battery setup if anyone else is interested:

                          Thanks Jeff! The DVD is available...

                          I HAD to sneak out today to "finish" the Nitpicker Bar... A very basic front just for a street view, stair railing, signs and the detailing of the roof sign.

                            Very nice! A different structure than usual and unique. Yet, somehow it fits in.

                              I love it! Great job Troels. I think I would add a sign that read "next meeting at" and then have several dates and times crossed out. The weathering/coloring is very effective.
