    Excellent Ed', I wasn't aware of this publication in spite of the many modeling videos watched on Utube'. I have subscribed. I enjoyed reading your tutorials on the bridge, mo's barber shop and the entire article. Very well done'... :up:


    thanks Ted,

    The blog is pretty much a virtual notebook for my modeling. I take photos during the build .. that way I can go back and find out just how the heck I did something .. I also try and document the things that go wrong as that can be as important or more so than a build without errors.

      Ed,

      I enjoyed the publication and have applied for membership. Your work is exceptional and I especially enjoyed the interweaving of the paper buildings.

      Thank you so much for sharing!

        Dave,

        Thanks. I keep trying to 'explain' to people that getting stuck on one material .. plaster, plastic, wood or paper .. you are missing out. Multi-media is really the way to go .. use whatever is appropriate. Take the cardstock clapboard for example. In O scale the cardstock is pretty much scale thickness .. but I use stripwood for the trim. Paper/cardstock can warp .. maybe .. so I use it as a veneer on top of a foam core .. uhh .. core (sic). I use 3d printing but would love to have access to a laser cutter and ability to do brass etching. Going with the strengths of each media would be a blast . the hard bit being .. well able to do so. While laser cutting is beyond my means I intend to dip my toes into photo etching at some point. Fun stuff!

          that really is a great website.

          Q: is it possible to get issue #1 of the web-zine?

          thanks

            Ed, I definitely like your multi-material approach, but don't dip your toes in the photo etch solution!

              I'd like to dip my toes in photo etching. (not really) But would like to try that medium of brass work since I use a CNC mill and manual lathe to do my brass engines. Adding the etching process would be a great improvement. Someday.

                If you scroll down the linked to page all the way to the bottom you will see eMag-January 2015. That is the first issue.

                    I have been working with Walt Gillespie of Rusty Stumps on creating masters for him to use for RTV molds so he can make resin copies. So far .. hasn't worked. The last .. Version 3 I think .. well .. didn't work. I have since uploaded a Version 4 with thicker walls .. see how that goes. In the meantime, Walt sent me the Version 3 resin castings and I figured I could still use them by carefully arranging them so the problems won't show. The problem I ran into is that simply .. I have no room for them next to Jukes Boat Rental.



                    I decided that I could create a small platform/dock next to the structure to stack the rowboats. If interested I posted the process to my blog - Jukes Boat Rental - V

                    Here's the structure where it is at this point .. I still want to add some things .. a pivot arm/davit on the end pole, bumpers, cleats etc. .. but need to make a hobby shop run today.

                      Looks good Ed.

                      Is that chain the 40 LPI?

                      Hope you can hide those white spots where the piling went trough the Envirotex.

                        yep .. that's the 40 LPI from Builders in Scale. I have applied a bit of Acrylic Gel to make lapping waves .. will add some white to that in a bit and .. then squint and see how that looks
