  • WOW !!

    As I was going along adding photos I came to a page where the photos started to appear where they were supposed to.

    It looks like the rest is OK. I cannot explain it but I assume that the rest is OK and will let it go unless someone lets me know
    where there is more work to be done.

      • Bob, That's a lot of work, and we all appreciate being able to see your work again.
        Why are some pics now appearing ? If it's to with computers, who knows. They have a mind of there own.
        Regards Rob

        Despite the cost of living, it's still popular

        My current build.

        • Dave and Rob, thanks for your comments.

          Rob - It seemed to me that all the photos were missing from vol.1 and vol.2 as a result of the forum being moved to new software.

          I have spent days editing the photos back into those vols. but partway through vol.2 I got to the point that the photos were OK and I stopped there.

          Bob.

          • I received this picture via email from a friend of mine who is not into model railroads and has no idea what my last build was.

              I missed this post. Your model also completely captured the iconic feel of what a hobby shop is.

              I agree with Bill! Nicely done!

          • That hawk is awesome! I'll have to check out their stuff and see if there's anything else I might be able to use.

            • Thanks for your comment Ray.

              They have some really unusual stuff but the problem is that they only print stuff in O and HO scales.

              It just so happened that a O scale eagle could be painted as a G scale hawk. If you find any others please let me know.

              • Good Morning all.

                Those of you who know me know that my wife's health has not been good for years and I am her care-giver.
                This always takes a lot of my time and right now she is having an extra bad time and I have not been posting
                or model building. I have been giving it some thought and have come to the conclusion that getting back to the
                model workbench would, if only a little, help me keep my head straight. I am a dedicated model builder.

                With that in mind I started looking for a subject for a new model and an old favorite popped up. Many years ago
                Model Railroader published a really fine set of drawings for the railway station in Gettysburg, which is only a short
                distance from home. The problem is that every time I get those drawings out I find that making that model in my usual
                1/24 scale turns a rather small station into a large cumbersome model and I put them away again.

                However, since I am no longer working on a layout and building everything to the same scale I thought that maybe
                making that model in O scale (1/48) might work out and that is my plan right now. I am still in the info gathering and
                planning stages but I will be model building soon. I hope you will all join me.

                Till next time,

                Bob

                • Bob:

                  Thank you for the update. You and your wife have my well wishes.

                  The Gettysburg station is indeed an interesting one architecturally. I'm looking forward to seeing you build it.

                  Mike

                    • Bob, I'm all too familiar with the challenges of being a full-time caregiver. I wish you and your wife the best. And look forward to following your latest project.

                      • Bob,
                        I am sorry to hear your wife is having a extra bad time.
                        My wife and mother-in-law have had some bad times this year, and I have been doing what I can to provide care.
                        In the times I have, I find modeling helps keep me sane.
                        I wish your your wife better times, and hope you find some sanity in modeling.

                        • Bob,
                          I think building a model will help your work out some of the stress that develops from being a care giver. i will keep you and Anna May in my thoughts and prayers.
                          Looking forward to you station build.
                          Dave

                        • Mike, Carl, Fred, Scott, and Dave, thanks for your comments and wishes, all are most appreciated.

                          I know it's too early to be thinking about painting this model but I can't help it. It seems that it has worn several color
                          schemes over the years, always a two-tone scheme of a main color and a trim color. Right now my favorite and the one
                          I will most likely use is a tan on most of the building with a dark green trim. There is an old painting showing the crowds
                          of people at the station to welcome President Lincoln in 1863 when he arrived to give his Gettysburg Address. In that painting
                          the station looks like my favorite of tan and green. If you google "Gettysburg Railroad Station" you will get tons of photos.
                          The station started business in 1858 and survived the war as a RR station and a hospital. The last passenger used the station in 1942
                          and then it had many uses until finally coming under the control of the National Park Service.

                          As with any other structure I have built, before I start, I look it over trying to find all the things that I can make masters of and then
                          cast resin copies to save lots of work. This would be things like windows, doors, chimneys, corbels, trim pieces, etc. I often start
                          these before any work is done on the building proper and I will do the same this time.

                          Bob

                          • OK, OK, OK, I know I haven't posted much at all (or any) lately. I have spent more time caring for my wife but
                            this little railway station is much more complicated than I first thought. I have been studying the drawings and
                            photos and have done some layout work. I have also done a small part in making some masters but nothing
                            so far to photograph. There are LOTS of decisions to make yet as to how I want to go about it.

                            I can see this as a looooong slooooow process. Sorry about that.
