Silver dale Anthony Quinlan - 2016/17 Challenge

Post by antonyjq » Tue Aug 02, 2016 1:03 pm

Here goes.
Needed something to get my backside into gear and this could be it. I'm going to build an Ho module, my first ever Ho modelling. I'm just at the planning stage. I tend to spend months researching (which I quite enjoy - finding out about American railroads) and ten minutes planning. The photo shows my entire planning process; the first two are me getting bored at work, No. 3 is more detailed (on the back of the Amazon packaging for a map of Washington State that I purchased as part of my research) and the Nissan brochure shows what I will probably be using to transport the module next year when I've robbed a bank. Current car not suitable. I visited the Nissan showroom to measure up what I could possibly fit in. I reckon 4' should be possible. Distance between wheel arches poor - 1.05 metres.
Haven't decided yet if it will be set in NE Washington (GN) or SE Washington (NP or SP&S).
Not sure if the link (below) to the Flickr will work.

Glad to see a submission, although you are well on time, the challenge doesn't actually start until December 1st 2016, but nice to see your plans nonetheless!
(I've also embedded your photo for ease of viewing , and added your name to the thread as this is important when the challenge runs to keep track).

Age is just a case of mind over matter. If you don't mind, then it doesn't matter.
