  • Congratulations Troels.

    Any chance of an overall view of the layout?

    • i second rick's request.... or a panoramic video showing the entire train room would be most excellent.

      this has been such a treat to follow along on your construction project(s) over the past couple of years. thanks troels, for all the documentation that you've provided us. it's really been a great learning experience. i'm sure i'm not alone in this.

      • Troels and all,

        Indeed, this forum has been an inspiration and a great learning experience. I am part way thru building a station, patterned after the last one Troels built, and using the matte board and MiTeints paper for clapboard siding. I used cedar shake shingle from Full Steam Ahead. A lesson for all: If you want a stained or just naturally weathered shingle appearance, do the staining or weathering before glueing them to the sub roof. If you are painting them like Troels does, then the sequence does not matter (unless the paint would interfere with the glue.) Please do not ask me how I found this out. :erm:

        • Everyone sounds like this is about to finish!

          I can see at least another year in detailing here. Then there's the sequel to the DVD, the T shirt sales, the coffee mug and the chartered Dreamliner tours from other countries to see it.

          Maybe Troels will build a second level?

          • Ian, you are right... the layout is no way near completion.

            The white foam is still glaring every time I enter the room begging for color and landscape, then there are a gazillion more trees to build, a restaurant, a big luxury yacht, a couple of sardine carriers and lobsterboats, valances and skirts, lighting needs upgrading here and there... and then the detailing can begin in earnest. A lot of cars and a railbus still need painting, and operation will begin too needing clean track and more turnout remote controls...

            No second level though Ian. But the odd exhibition module I'm sure. And dioramas.

                      • Congrats Troel's on another wonderful volume. I have learned a lot and have again spent countless hours reviewing your techniques and just outright enjoying the pictures which you are providing of the world you are creating. I do not have words to express how much I appreciate the time you take each day or so to share your creation, thoughts and techniques with us. I do know that you made a huge time commitment in the creation of this volume. Again, thank you and I look forward to the next volume.

                          • Holy cow,

                            We are already at the end of Vol. 5.

                            Hard to believe. Seems like we just started it yesterday.

                            Lots of great modeling info just like all the others.

                            Troels, you are doing a super job.

                            Hey, I think that is the first time that has been said......NOT.

                            Good luck and looking forward to another.

                            • Troels, a short followup on your high gloss gel medium technique for finishing the water. I have been practicing this as you suggested using the pallette knife recommended. I am curious how much you did in one work session, since it is tedious work. Can I do say a square foot, and then let it alone to come back another day and continue on without causing any difficulties?

                              Thank you.

                              • Bob, you can do as much or little as you want... just don't leave a straight edge when you quit (it will show up when you resume...)
