My name is John and I live in New Zealand.

My interest is in modelling the DRG in the late 1920's early 1930's. I am fortunate in that my train room is 5 meters x 6 meters so I have a lot of space to play with. The layout itself covers about 17 square meters of the room.

I go through phases of intense modelling and then nothing for a while. Progress updates on my layout are viewable here http://germanrail.8.forumer.com/viewtopic.php?t=962

Since the last update, I have done very little. I have been working on my local clubs exhibition layout http://www.mmrc.org.nz and that work thing has gotten in the way of modelling. But hopefully over the next couple of months I will find some time and continue building the town.

Hi John & welcome to the forum,

Nice scenery work & it's good to see the "railway through the scenery" rather than "scenery with the railway ". Like the trees too but my domestic authority would through a real wobbly if I used any of her kitchen tools - she would know if I even though about it !

I'm sure the scenery experts here will be well interested in the tree construction.

Hi John and welcome.

Any one who widens the spectrum and does what you do has to have something useful to contribute.

Hi

I do have a pretty specific interest in terms of the trains I run, but am always happy to learn about and discuss scenic techniques.

I have been lucky in that I have a really good friend who is an ex gunsmith who has an amazing attention detail and I have learnt a lot off him.

John
