Fred has been in touch again.
I think you’ll probably remember his layout – it’s stunning.
And Fred, as you’ll see, also enjoys his night scenes, as the pictures show.
But do you know what, before you carry on reading, why not grab a coffee and have a look at the video on his last post.
It really gets across just how busy Fred has been.
I put modeling aside from last April ‘til this December to take up the violin again with a professional teacher and try to finish up a book I’m writing. (Too many projects in my retirement!)
But I’m back in the game again, and have been recently working on the N Scale city of Port Charles, complete with its theater street, neon lights, and a rather seedy strip joint. Thought I’d share some photogs with you in case you needed more grist for the mill. In the distance you can see my oil refinery, which is about 25% done. I’m illuminating with “Pica” LEDs, which are very fussy, very expensive, and very time consuming. Every single light you see is rheostat adjustable!
All the best,

Stunning, stunning stuff. Can’t thank Fred enough for sharing.
And it also got me thinking. If you enjoyed his city buildings as much as I did, don’t forget there’s plenty of them available in the print out scenery range.
If you want to try your hand at one, here’s a great ‘how to’ and a silly offer for you:
As with all the buildings in the store, they are made from print out scenery.
You just download, print, and make. Here’s what this office block looks like:
Here’s the clever part though, because you can print as many sheets as you like, you can scratch build until your hearts content – here’s what John did:
This office block is in the store for $9.97 – but right now, you can grab it for just $5.
Course, I’m biased, but that’s a real steal.
For HO scale, you don’t need to do anything to the prints.
For N scale, reduce the print by 50%.
For O scale, increase by 143%.
Not only is this office a fine looking bit of scenery, like the all the other prints, it’s a lot of fun too.
Can’t wait to see these on somebody’s layout.
But don’t hang about though – offer ends Sunday.
Or it could be you just want to grab the Beginner’s Guide.
That’s all for today folks. A huge, huge thanks to Fred. Stunning stuff.
