    Dropped my daughter off at college today.
    Five minutes up the road ( conveniently on the way home ) is a hobby shop, so I stopped in (for the first time) and found and picked up a used kit.





    I felt like I stole it

    Received an Eiffel Tower ($65) yesterday via Etsy. The house is from Walthers, the van is from Etsy & the 2 trees are from Freon (hand made in Poland) via Etsy. The Tower is made up of 4 pieces and is to be glued together after each section is painted (black?).

    Great haul, @Tomahawk! That Eifel Tower is amazingly intricate.

    Nice one

    Is the Eifel to scale ?
    Thanks, Tom

    Really, Tom. The Eiffel Tower is 1063 ft tall, or in N scale, 6.64 ft.

    A few goodies from Micro-Mark. The big item is the 5" disc sander. I have wanted one for a while and it was on sale. Two packs of Pic-N-Stics for holding small items for painting. On the bottom left is a lighted uncoupler. I am sanding down the tip to work better with N-scale couplers. That is all. Cheers and stay safe. Maurice

    For some years I have been searching ebay for this 3 part set from Scenecraft/Bachman/Graham Farish. It is called the Oak Hill Brewery
    and today I got the last two pieces after finding the first some time ago. Below are two photos I took off Google Maps right now and two of the kit!

    If anyone can help me find, https://www.hattons.co.uk/249821/gra...ew/stockdetail
    I will be done with ebay forever and very thankful.

    I ordered a roll of art craft paper, 18" x 100'. This is for painting a backdrop for the Alpenbahn.



    The photo I will be using as a reference was taken in August, 2014, from the Piz Gloria on top of the Schilthorn, by Lauterbrunnen, Switzerland.

    https://www.dropbox.com/s/hwpgh45bax...01522.JPG?dl=0

    The peaks, from the left, are the Eiger (Ogre), Monch (Monk) and Jungfrau (maiden). I have pinned it together with an adjacent photo so I can get a 14" by 12 feet backdrop. This should be interesting, since I haven't painted a "mural" since 1973.

    Music to my ears. I can't wait to see what you produce. If the side panel you painted is anything to go by, then we are in for a treat. And, to cap it all, you're painting an old stomping ground of mine. Back in the day I made a harrowing retreat from just below the Hinterstoisser Traverse on the Eiger n.f. A wise move as I had bitten off way more than I could chew. Pitty it is covered in cloud in your photo. You could of course omit enough of the cloud to show my brave struggle.

    I would, Tom! But at the distance as seen from the Schilthorn, against the white glacier, you would simply be a black dot. Was anyone with you? But we do try to be hysterically accurate.

    Broke eight of ten? Welcome to Moose's world... Hmmm, 0.5mm = ~ 0.019", Moose could use one of those right this very moment!
