Tony’s been back in touch – he decided to add a touch of snow to his HO scale.
It’s another fine example of how your layout is exactly what you want it to be – nobody else matters.
It also shows how a layout is never truely finished.
I think when you’ve done all you want to do, that’s the time most people rip it up and start again, because that’s where the fun is.
Anyhow, back to Tony – some of you will remember his layout.
I love the way he’s connected two layouts together:
You know that time when you sit and stare at your layout and think, that could do with freshening up ? Well, I have done it again !
First I had extended my 8 x 4 ft HO layout across the window to create an extra 4 x 3 ft where I experimented with various ideas.
Well I finally decided on a winter theme and dived in using copious amounts of Woodland Scenics Soft Flake Snow SN140 – most realistic I have come across.
Anyway I hope you enjoy the photos attached showing the various stages of my layout.
Now onto the scary part for me – the electrics and lighting !
Keep up the good work !
A big thanks to Tony – he really did put a smile on my face with this update.
And that was very timely because there’s a lot of doom and gloom about at the moment.
I might just be old, but sitting down with paper used to be a joy. It doesn’t feel like that anymore.
But do you know what cheered me up this week?
A bargain. A simple bargain.
I bought a boot – or should that be trunk – liner for my battered old Volvo.
The childish delight of a simple bargain never grows old, even at my age.
Anyway, the long and short of it is it made me think perhaps I can put a smile on some of your faces.
I’ve never been one for running sales – just once or twice a year seems about right to me.
But if a short, sharp sale makes you smile as much as my boot/trunk liner (or Tony’s snow), I thought why not?
So just for one day – and one day only mind – you can get the Beginner’s Guide and 16 printable buildings for the whopping price of just $9.
Just so we’re clear though, it’s just for a day or so…
I know many of you buy the guide just for the printable buildings that are bundled with it, and that’s absolutely fine.
I hope it gives the doom and gloom a poke in the eye.
And of course, it’ll help keep the site chugging along.
That’s all for today folks.
Please do keep ’em coming.
If you want to grab a bargain with lots of free bonus downloads, the Beginner’s Guide is here.
PS Please don’t hang about if you’re mulling this over – it really is a flash in the pan sale. Hope it raises a smile.
