  1. My first attempt at N scale

    Well I thought I would just make a blog more for my own reference just so that I could see what I started out doing till the finished project and (hopefully) see if I improve on what I am doing now.

    First of I might just tell you a little bit about myself. I am a 22 year old studnet studying Primary Education (4th year) at QUT in Brisbane, Australia. I have always like model trains and my grandfather used to run his own store down in Tasmania.

    Anyway now to the N scale ...

  4. First of two coal mines --- progress report

    Here is my first of two planned coal mine scenes so far. It is an excellent RLW kit in my opinion and went together nicely. Still have to paint some hills/mtns on the wall and then plant lots of trees, secure the structures in place a little bit, wire the LED light under the tipple, and more details to the scene. I made the mine tunnel liner removable and there is a light in there, too.
