G'day  John

I am sure you will fit right in, as you would be aware there are several Australians that are members.

There are many "O" scale  modelers, mainly Narrow Gauge and I know that is to your taste.

Our members are only to happy to share information and ideas. I look forward to your participation.

Don

Welcome John!

It's a delight to have you join our little group.

Dan posted a few photos of your joint venture in the Dolly Varden...there is always room for more...hint hint.

Speaking of joint ventures...how are things progressing with your first offering for the new kit company??

Well I hope.

John--WELCOME!

Glad that you like our "hangout" enough to join.

I hope that you will share with us some of your secrets on building such convincing dioramas.

Herb---another O scale, but standard gauge guy-- :old dude:

Hi John,

Fancy seeing you here.  I know this bloke; he is bit of an all-right modeller.  How have you been, and have you a project you are working on?  Dolly Varden was exceptional, congratulations on the great work you have done.

I believe you and Laurie might be going into business; if so I wish you well.

Mr Hutchinson


Thanks for the intro , After  building dolly Im back into some diorama building , my real passion , built a new dio called shearing time and its  not to bad has that country Australian feel about it, when I figure out how to post pics I shall post a few. Also built a dio called Sanchez Salvage a water front scene with boats and things ,I like my water front builds, ive also built an Australian based   structure that houses various companies ,a general store, stock feeds, and local garage/gas station, I really like that one. and thanks for the best wishes on the new venture .
