When can we see some pics of your progress Leon?



Chris, very little of my progress can be seen. This picture, posted previously, hasn't changed a lot. I decided to wait on more track (and points) before proceeding with the landscape. One of the surprises for me is just how inter-related layout modelling is and how one change can affect so many decisions. I received no suggestions after the last post of my track plan, so I'm presuming there aren't any glaring errors. So, when the next order of track arrives I'll mark the points and electrical feeds (for the second time), drill holes for wiring, lift everything, and begin re-laying and gluing the foam "forms". I'll probably, then, do a little blending of foam layers, including all the inclines. This last step may take a bit of time, after which I'll re-lay the track - this time permanently. I'll take photos and post at each step in the process just outlined. No modelling of buildings, yet. I'm anxious for my first experience, but couldn't do the plastic kit outside due to weather conditions, this weekend, and the cardboard kits will await the construction previously outlined. I'm not good at multi-tasking! Kudos to Laurence who is the master! :) My wife says I have a "one track mind" (no pun intended), and she's right!
