    Took my modules out of storage day before yesterday, want to give them a once over before the show this weekend. Not too much room in the basement, but I did manage to get them set up.

    Last module I made, the canyon and arch bridge, looked okay and will close it up.

    Somehow I chipped off a corner on this one, filled it in again and will have to retouch it up with paint when it drys.

    This crack on the edge of the same module has me baffled. Looks like the end flexed in and caused this continuous crack. Module still sound and I did add a few extra screws to prevent it from happening again. Will have to repair the scenery along the crack but the road will have to have a crack. I'll see if I can make the crack look intentional. (It's on a fault line anyway, the two modules join at this point)

    Hope to see some of you at the Springfield, MA show this coming weekend. The Northeast NTrak modular layout (Winterfest '05) will be in the main building.

    Sweet!!
    Roads crack... maybe a big tree, or a wash out, or a culvert.

    Nice work Bill. :thumb:
    Curious how you transport them. This is becoming an issue with our club as some of us are getting multiple modules but don't have a minivan or similar to move them in.

    Really nice work on those modules! I think the crack gives the road additional characer.
