Okay – first things first. I think there were gremlins about again in my last mailing.
If you missed Ken’s latest Amsterken layout, it’s here.
Now, remember Andy and his War of the Worlds piece? Well have a look at this one!
Over the last two offerings I shared my passion for T-trak and most recently my t-trak corner module and my War of the Worlds (Old- 1953 George Pal version vs New- 2005 Stephen Spielberg version) straight module.
Today I would like to share with you my newest corner module. This module comes directly from a scene in the 1953 George Pal version of WotW’s. In this scene the first of the “meteors” crashes outside of town there are several visitors to the site and one individual even hits it with a shovel (noting the hollow ring) the Sheriff and the scientist have gone out to look and discover that the three men they left to “Babysit” the meteor are now gone (piles of ash) and that the meteor has “unscrewed” it’s lid and has the heat ray/probe sticking out (see the last 3 pictures) all you know what breaks out from there. The Army brings in tanks and personnel and it becomes an all-out war.
I built this module as a complimentary piece to the version I shared earlier. Model Railroading has got to be about capturing the minds and hearts of the young and old alike. That requires a little “out of the box” thinking, and finding “common ground”. Therein lies the beauty of T-Trak. You can add or subtract modules to cater to your audience…. If it needs to be prototype it can be if it needs to be more it can do that as well. As always I would love to hear your member’s thoughts… (Good and bad I use them all)
Rob has been in touch again with curve update. Enjoyed this one.
Please keep ’em coming.
Don’t forget – last few days on Big Kahuna bundle deal for the print out buildings.
