    • If you do Ebay look for Grandt Line products.  Really good castings.

      Unfortunatly they are also long out of business so Ebay or maybe one of the Face Book swap pages..

    • I am looking for recommendations. Where can I find reliable 1/24th scale basic windows and doors for modeling structures? Plastic or wood will do.

       

      Thank you for your time and consideration.

      So, I wonder if Rooster or Ken will build a "Builder's Napkin Factory"?

      Ken doesn't use napkins and I would just shred them for nesting material!  However Ben did install a "beak wipe" dispenser in the chat room a couple years ago with tamper proof torx which lead to folks wiping their  _ _ _ _ on the cafe curtains in my corner. I'm sick and tired of folks leaving the basement light on as well. Hello, someone has to pay the electric bill ?

      We've been calling them "Operations Quality" for some time now.  "Does it look like a boxcar from 10 feet?  Works for me!"

       

       

      I love looking at stainless boxcars from 10'

      Man I can't believe this, I don't look at this thread for 2 days and all H#%L brakes out.  But it did answer the question I had about "Napkin Builders" after seeing Shawn add it to his name.

      You're probably right Ralph, this guys is so tightly wound that just the mear thought of doing anything on a "Napkin" will cause a heart attack.  So much for his "Grand Railroad".

      All I know is that there are lots of great people on this site with lots of "Grand Railroads" and we have lots of fun.  And we even have a Rooster.  Let's see him top that!!!!!!!!!

      Fascinating, haHA! Napkin builders....  Maybe that's like Butt Modeler... but with paper involved.

       

       

       

       

      Cliff, I think paper is involved in goth cases

      I was curious, and he wasnt just an ass here.  He's made quite a reputation on other sites too.  Here's a thread from 2007 with the same attitude.

         Geez, Bob, and I felt dang satisfied with myself when my detective work led me to PDFs of the architectural drawings of my build this year. I can see where that wouldn't have been nearly, not even nearly, good enough for You Know Who, since I don't have the original blueprints from the original railroad that built the original tower.

       

       

      Wouldn't have been too long before we agreed to ignore him too!

       

      I think another reason for your big buttresses, vibrations from the trains passing by.

    • I hate I somehow missed this thread when it first started. I could have made some money off this guy. I would have gladly sold him some original napkin drawings signed and sealed by the engineer of record

    • When I look at the caliber of the projects in Miks 2020, as just one example, however, I have to say that The Revenge of the Napkin Builders has been accomplished ...

    • Yup, so the napkin drawing became sort of  joke.
