    • Bob;

       

      My photos of the mine tram track were lost in the MLS photo storage fiasco.  Essentially, I just took HO code 100 flex track and an old Y turnout and removed two out of every three ties with a diagonal cutter.  Worked about as fast as digital printing, plus I retained the nickel silver rails.

       

      Just another approach, David Meashey

       

      P.S. Forgot to mention that I already had that track on hand.

      How well would that stuff hold up outdoors?

      Probably doesn't matter much, they could be reprinted in no time, for little cost, plus after proper painting they would be UV resistant too.

       

      The 3d printed windows on the Majesic colliery building have been outside every summer for, er, 6 years now.  Painted, they seem to be just fine.

    • More experimenting in 3d printing.  This time, some 15" panel track for around the mines.

      ...Some might say I go too far with the labels, but...

       

       

       

       

           The only problem I'm seeing is you probably have to lay on your side to read them.

    • As long as you don’t have a label maker with a label saying “Label Maker”, you are not too far gone!!

    • Hey dudes,

       

      Since the mountain I have to make for these buildings is it's own big project, I'm switching over to a new thread about that:

      Virginia City central mountain project.

       

      To close this project out, I'm happy to say that the flats are ready for install, my work table is cleared for new things, and I even updated my bin labels. Some might say I go too far with the labels, but...

      Jim there is a building called the Kettle in Galveston, TX. Looks pretty much like a big pot, maybe he just has not painted it yet.

    • Hey Cliff! That building sized pot, upper right last photo, may not be to scale. Maybe... :-)

       

      Looking good. Hope work is restful.

    • WAIT!  I'm confused.  All of us play with trains, and somebody said, "Grow Up!"  I may be 74 years old, but my response is "NEVER!!!"

       

      Have fun, David Meashey

    • Today was reworking how the water and power lines come up and out of the coming mountain, final gluing / positioning of the bricks, grading / tamping the dirt,and cutting & setting the street foundation boards.

       

       

      Next will probably be the steel mesh for the terrain contours, but first I need to spend a week at work and recover from all this, haha!

      Rooster, you get it the wrong way around, as usual.

      dead poultry is hung by the feet, not by the neck!

      I think  the feet thing is AFTER they're dead.   By the neck gets them to that stage.

      Just as a note:  One can't hang them by the neck if you chop the head off...   

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

      Grow up !

       

       

       Talking to your self again Rooster?

       

       

      Fun is not allowed!!!!!
