Re: m.levin's layout thread

If your question is about mimic panel, what I did on my N gauge layout was to draw something on the PC with all layout features (tracks, legends etc.) colour coded, and then print it off on A4 paper. I then laminated it (using the wife's laminater!) and stuck it onto a piece of plywood for mounting ...

Re: PNP's O-16.5 Workbench

Thanks Timbersurf, but that's what I love about this hobby - there are so many aspects that can be brought in (or not!) as per what interests us. E.g. I can't really see me getting into 3D printing - and 'real' engineering that I see some modelers doing is way beyond me. But a bit of software and si...

Thanks Strider 8) A big day today! First trial of the hoist in action!!! One final pulley was needed on the ground floor, in a position quite visible through the window :o.

Re: PNP's O-16.5 Workbench

More progress has been made in the form of sides (only 5cm as this is a low relief building), first floor and its (open doors), and what I am told is a Lucam (or as I call it "the sticky-out bit"!). The corners between sides and front are not perfect (by any means) but at least by scribing...
