    I (almost) finished up a pair of WC Geeps. I just need to add a couple last details and get them weathered.

    @jpwisc Wow, those are crisp. I can only dream of making paint jobs like you do. 10/10
    Thanks, Tom

    I've been doing some work on new modules during my time off this week. I've got a teaser going over in https://www.nscale.net/forums/showth...is-is-a-teaser, maybe by the end of the year I'll be able to show something off.

    Please, let Moose correct your rather obvious error: You "...will have something to show off by end of the year."

    You're welcome.

    Since I haven't posted anything since joining, I can't post any images yet. I did get a little benchwork done. The lighting and backdrop are complete. Btw, how many posts do I have to make before I have the privilege of posting some images?

    Not much... ran trains, that's about it.

    And it'll get even better over the next few years. The owner has completed doubling the size of the building the layout is in and he'll be adding in the 2nd sub (north on the KCS main into Kansas, which is presently staging). Really looking forward to helping him out on the addition.

    after a lot of research and following Sumners posts this year I finally made the decision on a 3d Printer. I've had it a few weeks now and have been attempting to design a small depot similar to the B.-S. depot in Hamburg NY, here is my first attempt at printing the ground level, this was a test to make sure I was on the right path. I have the printer in my train building i.e. the garage and it can be a bit cool in there so I built a little cabinet to keep some of it's own heat in, in order to help the printing. So far I'm very excited, although learning 3d CAD is challenging. I tried to learn fusion 360 but my iMac is one year to old to get the current OS that is recommended to operate the current 360platform. At the moment I'm learning TinkerCAD....and using TinkerCad for my plans....

    @dilley340

    I think it 10 posts before you can post pics (bot kinda thing)

    Just comment on some threads you like and you can get there in no time at all

    Take pics of your layout as you go , and save them till you get your 10 posts in

    For a first go at 3D printing Darrell, I'd say you're off to a good start. Your ballasting looks great too btw.
