I am pretty sure we used to have a member and also a fellow chat group guy. 

His name was Verne and believe he used VNINER or something like that.


Is he still around like to talk to him ?

After a lot of digging thru magazines,
I found Verne Niner had built a Tex Mex diorama layout,
as featured on the cover of On30 Annual 2015.

Am interested in acquiring any of the Thomas Yorke FRIJOLE FLATS kits.

Thank you  mike lynch

Hi Mike,

Sadly Verne passed away suddenly in November 2018.

His layout is no longer, but some of it and I suspect some of the Frijole Flats kits,
are now incorporated into his friend Dave Meek's Thunder Mesa layout. 

For more, have a look at

Thanks John, did not know, kinda out of the loop last 5 years.

He had his Tex Mex Tom Yorke inspired On30 layout featured on the 2015 On30 Annual.


Stunning work.
