Keep us posted, Allen.

Today was a weird day.
I had, of course, a lot of pain. Still managed to do 30km on my bicycle. I discovered also the bicycle is paying with the same pain but much worse: it died today so until I manage to buy a new one no more biking.
At the workbench a little more progress. I made the two stone sides for the front of the 'chateau'. I am not sure about their height yet but, since are two blocks of modeled foam, it will be easy to lower then in a moment.
I also added a bit of tal grass to both. The glue must dry so I'll see clearly how they really look in the mporning.
In the mean time you can see what is done

Oh, yes: also the two stone stairs at the entrance of the chateau are now done. They need plaster in the jopints and some moss and other details but I'll work all that in the coming days.

My bed is asking if I am deaf or what?

See you tomorrow.

Magoo's narrow gauge, Daniel friendly version of a standard gauge vehicle from old Paris

But now Magoo found his glasses and after seeing the image bellow wants to modify his drawing

Magoo's update:

The change was simple but I like a lot the new version. It makes more acceptable the proportions between the steam compartment and the passenger one.

Very novel as a railcar and a lot of fun but the area for the coaling of the boiler is perhaps a little too large, the boiler being proportionately smaller than on the 1:1 unit. I wonder what the proportions would look like if the second window on the left is moved to add to those on the right so that there are five windows there and the chained off access platform for the firing of the boiler is moved to the left to connect with the one remaining window in font of the boiler. More room for passengers and not wasted on crew comfort!

Coal? Hmm... I didn't think about that! :bg:


Until I read your message that was a beautiful vestibule where to stand talking to a just met lady... and now you want ... COAL...!!!
:bang::bang::bang:


But, o.k., who chose for steam must have some coal too.

Now serious: I thought the second window from the left to be the place for the coal and the vestibule just that.
So you see: no need to do a thing: everything is reeady by just changing our thoughts. 
I assume the black tank under the floor must be for water. Right?

When I was going to go further with the corbels I saw the tapered roof of the 'tower'(...) needed to be tilled at least 8mm in order to allow the corbel and the drainage chanels to be under the edge of the tiles without totally covering the top beam of the walls.
So I separated the roof from the tower, added a rim of wood and glued on it the now higher roof.
But that must dry so I forgot the corbel and started doing little things here and there...
Nothing is glued yet among other because once in it's place the building can shake the muses and before one knows one is changin gf a lot of things. So I try to get as much done as I can and just then glue it all.

Nothing new except different light and the gardener's truck ready to go for plants for the garden ...



Don't worry, it is not going to look as the dancing buiuldings of the Netherlands and everything will stand truly verticaly once glued.

If my eyes would allow me this would be for sure a way for making many of the trees for my layout. But I really can't see good enough to carefully glue all the twigs to the armature without making a serious mess.

Still, may be one day I buy again a litter of glycerine, treat the twigs and do an intent.

The tree in the photos has been made in three or four minutes by simply droping the dried twigs on an armature I made a couple of months ago but are not glued.
Better eyes would be also able to ensure the stam of each twig joining the armature. But that is something I can't even think about.
Nevertheless, it is good to know it can be done.
I have no idea of the name of the plant. I picked those twigs up thre months ago and they have been since then just laying on a piece of paper.
They have totaly dried and of course very brittle. That is what the glycerine wouyld certainly solve and also preserving the color as it looks now.

The twigs I picked up were the new ones at the top of the plant, still much smaller than the old ones. But the drying process has made them wrinkle so the look now much smaller.
One should first let the leaves dry as I did and just then give them the glycerine bath

This is one of the grown leaves after drying together with the other:

No, this tree is not going to go there. There is one waiting for that place since a long time.

Still, I think I will treat some next Spring and use it for less complicated uses as this:
