The really weird thing is I'm not really a 'train guy'. I don't even have any trains. (don't tell anybody) I probably know more about boats then I do trains. I like trains a lot, if I had the space and money I'd have lots of trains and miles of track. I like all the other stuff that goes along with having trains. My plan is to build a bunch of dioramas that all fit together. So far it's working ok.
I might add some track soon, I have a factory type building planned.
Thanks for all the compliments.

LOL!

I don't find that weird at all.

Lot's of modelers like to do just what you are doing.

It's the building of small stuff that they enjoy...

Dave, I dont find it wierd that you dont consider yourself a " train " guy. You still contribute to this forum by showing other aspects of the modeling hobby. I thank you for sharing what you are doing here. :rah: Great job!!! :glad:

I guess I'm NOT the only one off on a different tangent.

Good for you Dave!!

Nobody ever told me I was wierd for posting a slot car track in here either, and there seems to be at least a few folks in here that enjoy watching it progress. 

When you build your factory, how about a play by play??:thumb:

Dave;
You don't have to run trains, here. I've been watching your Diorama building, and your buildings and details look fantastic.
:Woohoo::Woohoo::thumb::thumb:

Tileguy, I've been doing 'play by play' pictures for a while now. When I build a factory I'll take pictures as I go along. I'm probably going to start with an RDA kit and see what happens.

There's construction pictures for this tug, the one I'm working on now and a couple dioramas on my Fotki page.

Thanks,
Dave

I made a little bit of progress. All the little things are taking too much time.
