You probably know Fleischmann Magic Train (NEM) coupler system...

P2030235 (2) by Daniel Osvaldo Caso, on Flickr

and the Kadee contribution...

P2030234 (2) by Daniel Osvaldo Caso, on Flickr

As I would like to give L&P couplers a serious try and have 19 Magic Train car frames (9 of them shortened) with their standard NEM couplers I thought I could give a fitting L&P a try. So here the drawing already uploaded to Shapeways...

... but now, seeing the photos, I realize I could spare money if I manage to use the original clips removing the Kadee heads...

Wow...! It was two weerks ago I posted my last message...!

The reason is I've got the blues.

No, no those but two of these ones

P2030630 (2) by Daniel Osvaldo Caso, on Flickr

and was forced to enjoy an incredibly boring vacation on them.

But yesterday morning the cause of the blues vanished so today I've got back home and am already swimming in my workbench and no donuts of any kind nor pain killers.

LIfe is beautiful, isn't it?

Photos tomorrow.

Daniel

Two superintensive work days as revenge for the boring past weeks.

This 50cm X 80cm scene is not part of the current layout but was the first attempt to start with it and remained as an unfinished diorama for a while. Then I bought the static grass applicator and since then the diorama has been an area where to experiment with different things I wanted to try for the layout.
Still, after two days and now a second night of working on it I think it is going to be completed as a diorama that may provide funds for a couple of good mirrors.

The experiment with (super cheap) plastic mirrors is working fine but is a headache to remove them every time for cleaning the traces of my fingers and the pastel powder I am using all around. That won't happen once all the scene is completed but anyway I would prefer real front plated (first surface) mirrors or at least stainless steel ones. But they are far from the reach of my budget so for the time being I must keep using the plastic ones.
There are two different mirrors: one in the tunel going down (left of the scene) and another one in the still uncomplete small street at the higher level. They are easy to see with the eyes but pretty tricky to photograph.
