    Looking forward to seeing the new layout come together, Karl.

    I experienced something similar when I was considering modeling the Meeker

    Paul, I sold the Skally and it’s rolling stock to a friend here in Vegas. The real Skally lost its 2 largest customers and is now primarily a car

    What are your Easter eggs?

    I guess this is a little Easter Eggy, although it was mainly about finding a way to use a bunch of weirdo leftover WS dock worker dudes. Still trying

  • Barn build

    Nine years ago I made this sketch set (https://www.nscale.net/forums/downlo...?do=file&id=36), but never got around to building it. I know why I didn't, I knew the doors were gonna be tricky. Thats an understatement (they were a real bear, and took me a full week to do just the doors). Lower main doors are the sliding type with an upper door rail and bottom retainer, while the upper loft doors are inward swinging utilizing duct tape hinges.

    Eight doors total meant 40 pieces of .015 x .030 trim that always seemed to find the floor instead of my work table. Persevereance won though, and the completed project looks pretty good.

    Footprint is 2 3/4 by 4, and if you have a farm on your layout with no barn, this may work for you. I don't have a layout anymore (downsized to a condo) so this barn is for sale. PM me if interested.
