    :wave:A popup says I have not posted for ages so here goes, after returing from Canada and after having had the grim task of dismatling Mathro's layout I have had no urge to indulge in model making except to lurk on The Gauge
    I belong to a group of modelers who meet once a month to display their layouts,conduct wrkshops and and talk model railways
    Yesterday we had an all day fun day ,lots of competitions. I entered a Diarama and came away with a prize. so here it is:thumb:

    Good to see you back Jimmy. I went into that same funk following Robin's passing. Haven't done any building since. I do hang out here and seem to be ready to get on with the hobby.

    wow,nice diorama now try getting a whole layout that detailed! :D
    now,this is going to sound very out of place or possibly offensive but.your talking of mathryo which i have looked at all his threads in the academy.his layout was AWESOME so what happened to it.the best way i could see to remember him would be to display it to show how much he accomplished.sorry for bringing this up its just bothered me for a while.sorry if i offended anyone,i will remove this if it is a problem.--josh
