      Sorry Roos, but the lexicographers brought them back to life.  We have Noah Webster and his cronies to blame for thesauri still kicking around.  Thesauri are really nasty beasts.  They lunge at you screaming "MAIM!  MUTILATE!  MANGLE!  MAUL!"  Then right before they sink their razor sharp teeth into you, they mutter "See also physical harm."

       

      Not nice at all, David Meashey

    • From a Reddit thread (where somebody was quoting from Bored of the Rings):

       

      The company stood rooted to the ground in terror. The creature was about fifty feet tall, with wide lapels, long dangling participles, and a pronounced gazetteer.
      "Aiyee!" shouted Legolam. "A Thesaurus!"
      "Maim!" roared the monster. "Mutilate, mangle, crush. See HARM."

      You really have to be careful when spending a large amount of time with a thesaurus. 

       

       

       

      I thought they died off with the Pterodactylus?

    • Heya Jim, thanks! I hope though that the model isn't too alarming, dreadful, fearsome, frightening, horrible, terrible or terrifying, daunting or fearful, but I get the sense you like it, hahaha!

       

      Thanks for all the thanks guys!

    • Jim;

       

      You really have to be careful when spending a large amount of time with a thesaurus.  Thesauri can be unpredictable and very vicious.  Anyone who has read Bored of the Rings, the Harvard Lampoon parody of The Lord of the Rings will know that.  Since Bored of the Rings is now out of print, the danger of thesauri is no longer common knowledge.

       

      Just be careful around them, David Meashey

    • Fantastic.  I know a few museums who would love your files.

    • At long last, I finished this thing. I had to give up on the motorizing, because the bits of friction in all the joints added up to no workie. Some day I'll probably have another go, replacing this model's critical joint parts with ones printed in metal and nylon. That's why I'll leave it unpainted for now.

      at the end of this train are some new additions to my railroad.

       

      the black gondola is scratch built on a USAT 60'boxcar frame with decals from CMR products

      the first coil hood is part of a kit from alan friedman at 'the gal line' .  the other hoood and car are home made with decals from circus city decals

      the I added waffles to the AML high cube decals again from circus city.  This is in serious need of weathering,  it sticks out like a sore thumb.

      lastly two woodchip hoppers also kits from 'the gal line'. decals from CMR products

       

      thanks for watching.

    • Matt,

      I had to do a double take...I was looking for the model to compare to the prototype in the snow!  Great job!

    • Well done Matt, Nice as it looks in the snow we would have accepted dry scenery.

    • Hi all,

      The rest of my lettering arrived today. She's done:

      And yes, that's real fresh snow. It's been snowing here since September 8th, which is beginning to seem like a long time ago!

       

      Cheers,

      Matt

    • sitting at a computer instead of outside on the lanai.

      Computers work on the Lanai, too. That's where I go when someone is occupying my workshop/office/spare bedroom.

       They don't believe in winter in Hawaii...
