My ambition to update this blog on a regular basis have failed miserably. Those few people that have visited from time to time have probably given up a long time ago.
Fortunately, at least some of the time not spent on the blog have been spent on modelling.
Since finishing my Om engines (see below) I have focused more on H0 scale. I am a member of the local model railroad club here in Trondheim (Norway), and we are in the process off building a fairly large layout. My main interest is the buildings, and this autumn I have been working on a modl of large warehouse/tramway terminal.
As usual, I underestimated the amount of work it would take to finish this building. The model has a substructure of lasercut plywood clad with board-by-board panelling.
And it is of course the panelling that takes time… I have used more than 150 12″ lengths of Kappler 2″X6″ so far, and in additon some walls have a board and batten cladding made from scribed siding with 1″X4″ battens. But I am quite happy with the results, and hope to find some time during the holidays to finish the woodwork, at least. A photographic essay follows.
