If you're offering to pay the airfares for the spouse and me, I'm certainly willing to come over mate, otherwise I gracefully allow you to show them my pictures and give me the credit :)

Bravo Mate!!

      Took prints of your engine to the show. Train nuts didn't want to believe it was paper! Many thought it was awesome and now are looking for the paper-kits! It was very well recieved by our Vice-President of History!. He is into that era quite heavily!

       The show seemed to go off quite nicely and I believe the gate was better then we hoped, Considering we lost two venndors to car trouble. Paper models were in evidence as buildings and small equipment!

Wow, thank T-B, I guess I'm becoming famous at the other side of the pond then :)

 

Two days ago I started a new project, when I'm a bit further I'll start a topic over here as well.  It's not train-related though this time.

Hi, Dan. This is my first time on this forum and when I saw your work I was just thrilled, it's very unusual and so detailed! How long did it take you to do it? Thank you in advance for your reply. Thanks for sharing this, looks like I will soon have another new hobby))

Hello chelseynelson15, thank you for your interest in my work. Sorry that I haven't answered your question sooner. 

As to how long it took me to finish the engine I started on November 10th (2020) and the engine and tender could have been called "finished" by the end of March or mid April. Then the work on the base was delayed because I started working my dayjob again (most of the work on the engine was done during lockdown).

If you are interested in starting paper- cardmodeling, I would advise you to start with a few easier models to get the hang of it.  The major difficulty for these models is not the modeling itself but the instructions that, with many publishers, are only available in Polish. Visiting paper- and cardboard modeling dedicated forums should be very helpfull as well.

Hello everybody!

As I like to write it here on the forums - if you need some help with Polish and paper model instructions in particular, please write me and I'll try to help. Good luck with those paper models and have a nice day
