This week we are working on several model railroad projects, all while the outside temperature is triple-digit AND an arsonist is terrorizing the neighborhood!
Project one: Finishing the pond at Strebel Springs. Well.. will the pond ever really be finished? We keep adding things, like lilly pads and more grass.. AND we are adding a background sound system using Adafruit Sound boards. Well… it all shorted out. BUT I found the problem! As soon as this is finished it will be a show!! (without the short)
Project two: Karyn is scratch building her grade school in “N” scale! From memory as the building burned down years ago and she can find few photos.
Speaking of burned down… the neighborhood has been terrorized by an arsonist! In this heat! Over 30 million in damages. WHAT??
Project three: starting the backdrop for the logging railroad. Much more to do there!
Project four: Steve is building a 1: 20.3 scale windmill for the big canyin on the logging railroad. AMAZING DETAIL! Functional! Will be a show when it’s finished, AND it’s almost finished. We also check out the dismantle of his “O” scale railroad. Sad….
And speaking of sad, dismantaling and the heat, I am dismantaling much of the outdoor “garden railroad” because the wood is warping in the heat and the decking needs to be totally redone. GAD!!!!
So its been a busy and unusual and HOT week at Garagemahal!
