  • As my first kit since 1982, I think. I forget which FSM it was. I wanted to do it for someone special and learn at the same time. A world of difference from than to now. I feel confident my next effort will show improvement. I must learn how to post the pictures. I have a Nikon which may also be a benefit. Or it may show more flaws. If I achieve joy while building, and also the interaction with people on the various forums, that will enhance my life.

    Being 74 and a veteran, not all my days are filled with as much joy as I would like. I am not complaining, because I have an amazing lady and wonderful dog who strongly contribute to my well being.

    I look forward to a long standing good relationship with everyone.

        • Dave, Ted and Frank. I am so overwhelmed by your comments that I am having trouble responding. Those who know me, mainly from Brett's forum, know I have no secrets. To add to that my life is either joy, or I'm pissed off at something or somebody.

          I spend very little time in the middle. Now I am so joyful. Thank you.

          I took those pictures and some more, to see what the weathering would look like outdoors. Much different than inside. I also knew it would expose flaws. It sure did. But I wanted to learn, so I could improve. I also wanted to see if my phone camera was good enough to use. I sent pictures to to my dear fiend Carl Laskey, because he asked. I never intended to show anyone. I was happy with the results, considering it was my first effort in 35 years. Your comments will be treasured.

          I think my reluctance to post future work has changed. I thank you guys from the bottom of my heart.

          With great respect.

              • Hi Ed,

                You'll find the guys on RRL are helpful and respectful so please pick your forum and start posting your work. The teaser photos you ask Rich to post make us all want to see more.

                Cheers, Dave

                      What is a "Solider"? Have you been drinking again! LOL

                      • Ed,

                        I agree. We want to see more. Also, you must be distracting Dave; he hasn't posted anything new for days.

                        If you need help, the links here have info on posting photos: http://www.railroad-line.com/forum/t...TOPIC_ID=27749

                        • May I extend a thank you to everyone.

                          Rich for posting my pictures. The rest for being so supportive.

                          Ted, please excuse Rich, he sometimes can't control himself. It has put himself in a position where he can not mis-spell.

                          Ted, you did a very nice job on the roof. Compensation is on the way.

                          • Thanks Ed'. But it appears that Dave's thread has been hijacked'... I know he won't mind as he is such a fine gentleman'. But on behalf of the crew, Dave, we apologize'....

                            • Ted,

                              No problem with the hijacking. I was taking a pause anyway and seeing Ed's work was a nice surprise. Ed, I'll be watching for your first posting. I'm starting work on building three and will post shortly.

                              • Please, what does hijacked mean in this case?

                                I think I want to avoid doing that.

                                I'm thinking (bad thing in my case) of my next project. When I have time I will run it past you fine gentlemen. I have long learned to heed advice. Well at least listen to to it.
