I usually go by David, since the other Davids around me tend to go by Dave. I also go by Maynard. It doesn't really matter, just as long as I know the person is talking to me. One customer called me "The Copier Man", one called me "The Wizard", and many called me "The Xerox Man".
What's in a name? A rose, called by another name, would still cost as much. less

All the hardware cloth is down, now starting on the landscape fabric. Won't be getting back to it for a week or two. Going to the Smokys for a week. We want to see the fireflies. Miss those from my youth in St. Louis. Watch out for those bell worms...keep them fed.

I set the letters on a damp paper towel until the decal slides off the paper, then transfer the decal to my model. If I can get this silly picture system to work, I'll attach a finished product! Wish me luck!

Thanks for persevering:)
If you EVER decide to shut the site down, please let me know.
I am sure I can find a way to host it.
Hopefully not with all the links you had to play with.

I have pretty much finished my latest project: creating drivers and passengers to fit the Hubley Model A Ford (all versions except the truck) and Chevrolet car kits. As often happens I have extras left over. I am going to offer them here on LSC first at a significant discount. Anything left over goes to E-bay for the market price.
These are craftsman kits as making the arms fit properly will test your patience. Cutting the shoulder joint on the arm is required to get an accurate fit. Finishing includes filling, sanding and painting.
Here is what the kit looks like.
6 drivers in three different clothing styles ( 2 coveralls, 2 shirt and pants, 2 suit)
3 adult passengers 2 men and 1 woman (1 coveralls, 1 shirt and pants, 1 female in dress)
9 assorted heads to finish all of the bodies (6 different male heads, 1 female)
12 Drivers arms (4 sets short sleeve both hands on wheel, 2 sets short sleeve on arm on door, 4 sets long sleeves both hands o... less

Victor, I have a lot of N stuff from 20 years ago, barely run, I never had a layout.

Most of the stuff is collectable, but I removed the price stickers from the boxes early on, before this stuff was being collected, so it kills the collectable value.
Let me know, I have a spreadsheet...
Hi Greg if you have anything that might work on an 8 inch radius (no joke) , I'm interested

We suggest 800 pixels wide, though some like to let the software compress them, but my connection is slow and my patience thin.

I am surprized you got it to post.
I do have the same picture with a proper file name in my freight shed, so the bad one can go.

Since the initial post was for track, just the 45mm needs to be compared to HO track. If building your own switch then using a factor of 3 times may not work as 45 mm is just 45 mm, not a scale. What you run on the 45mm track is a scale.
HO Gauge IS 16.5mm gauge
G (really 1 gauge) IS 45mm
16.5 IS NOT 1/3 OF 45. We keep bringing scale into a gauge conversation. And as Greg has mentioned there is no G scale. There might have been at one time but now it is rightly called "large scale" for a reason. And as such my original question had to refer to track gauge and not a scale. less

I saw an animated figure with a man sitting lifting a coffee cup and it came with its own electronics and did not need DCC but could be turned on and off with DCC. Trainli had several different animated characters and another was a man using a pick.
I could not find that on the Trainli website, can you help locate it?
i like this video on animation, not for a caboose but WOW.

I don't want one that has problems, unless its real cheap. But I also don't want one with a new price tag. That's why I want it used. I need it for something I am going to run together.

I am pretty sure it wasn't painted pink the last time it actually was painted. And then if you weather the thing, a good over-spray of grime, and dust, will tone it down.

With all the talk of this meet you guys are going to I want to see some pictures from it. What I really want to see is the progress pictures of this snow dozer . The craftsmanship I saw of the frame at the beginning here was amazing.
I want to post some pictures too, but nothing much to look at right now. I'm currently waiting on the SWMBO to get back from the doctors so that I can finish the one last bolt on the car project... Once that is done, I can clean the garage mess from the car project and get back to modeling. Hopefully by Friday evening I will have some progress made.
If you bring a model you get a discount on the admission price. It could be anything that you've done. Something as simple as weathering a factory built car counts. The whole purpose of the RPM meets is to show what you've done. It's NOT a competition or "NMRA judging contest". less

When he is 8 he will toss it across the room.
With that, enjoy your summer, after Nappinee, we will wander up into mi. Upper P.
