  • I've had a brainstorming session of sketching multiple little track plans for mine, for various different themes. I've settled on an On30 micro - a small Louisiana town using Clevermodels kits.

    I'm not sure exactly how many of these kits I'll be able to fit in the space available, but I'll shuffle stuff around as I go.

    It'll be a while before I get to start on this one, due to the upcoming exhibition of my O scale layout in the middle of April, so my attention is focused there for the foreseeable future.

              • Finally a little progress to report on.

                I've framed out the shape of the mountain side using strips of cardboard.



                Next step is to cover it with some plaster cloth.

                • I like it, although having a turnout in a tunnel might be interesting.

                  • Well I'll be!

                    There is a mountain in your future and we get to see it.

                    Well done Rick looking forward to the plaster...

                      • Mike, Jerry and Mike, thanks for checking in.

                        Micheal, that's why I'm leaving the back open.

                        It's more than wide enough to get my hand in.

                        Thanks for the observation.

                        • Rick,

                          Nice to see you back at it.

                          Ron "Elwood Blues" is also starting one of these. I gave him the cork board a few weeks ago.

                          • Thanks Larry.

                            Ron, you make any progress?

                            I got most of the plaster cloth on.

                            Just a little more on the other portal entrance and then a light coat of spackle.
