      Okay I'm in, after surveying my materials I will be doing the Silver Fish from Porky's Railroad. I will be building it on a battery powered drive from a Christmas train set, the same one I built the Wallace and Grommet rocket car on. I have NO idea how I'm going to build the cardstock body but I have built many paper models in the past so I have a good base of experience to fall back on. Napkin sketch to follow on my build page.

      You're in.

      Got a napkin for your drawing? We dislike rulers and graph paper as we be inspired by a folk artist extraordinaire.

      Welcome

      Welcome abord Scott.    Your In.....  You will need to start a build log for the produce shed.

      Go to the first page of the "Build Challenge" And start your own build log like the other victims of this insanity...

      Yunz enjoy your head start. This is Locomotion Weekend at the science center, and my club has its modular layout set up at the science center. I will be down there playing trains most of the weekend.

      When I was doing production work (many at a time) I found doing two was nearly like doing one.

       

      Why doncha build a model of the greenhouse at night after the bigg'un during the day?

      Yea, so. We have all had those piles before. We scavenge parts out of those piles for the next try, and/or re title what the pile is so we can claim success.

       

      Devin, it is fun. Especially now that other members have decided that they want to run trains too. It gives me a chance to take a wizz and then go see the other layouts.
