You can NEVER have too much styrene on hand.

Every trip to the hobby shop includes picking up a package or two of styrene,
even if I don't have a specific project in mind. 

Never know when inspiration will strike.

Never overlook the inexpensive wooden items,
in craft stores like Michael's or Joanne Fabrics.

Always carry a measuring tool in your scale,
and measure anything that looks promising.

Applies to other railroad scales, ship items, whatever.

1/2" scale 'doll house items'

1/4" scale 'architectural modeling items'

And then there's, "You never know what you'll find at the 99"

And actual milled wood siding and such.


Sadly there's no real hobby shops in my town anymore.

I printed out a short scale ruler on paper,

and keep it folded up in my wallet. 


Always handy if I need to check the dimensions of an item.

I'm lucky that I have a measuring device with me at all times. 


A six foot tall figure is the same as my finger's length,

each knuckle equals about two scale feet.

Hi David


Thanks almost entirely no doubt to your tireless efforts & prolific Posting

When I Google the common question 'what is Gn15' ?

Freerails 'Large Scale' Forum & your Thread are about 1/3 from the top of the 1st page !


Furthermore when I Google 'what is Gn15' ? in Google Images

Your loco model is the 4th photo in Google Images at the very top of the 1st page !





This little fella is probably therefore the 4th most looked at Gn15 loco on Planet Earth !

Dunno what the Martians are looking at though ?


:f:


Eddie

Thanks, Eddie, for the heads up. 

I've enjoyed Gn15 so much,
anything I can do to promote this scale/gauge is my pleasure.

I really hope some folks will give Gn15 a try,
and I hope my Threads can play a part in their discovering what fun it can be. 

Regards, Dave L.
