    Here is a link to a site with a layout that will take several more decades to finisih and scenic I think. I would not want his bills for what this is going to cost. There is alot of great info there as well, so please check it out.Pat

    Pat,

    Wow, you are right, this guy has to have a good year into it already, just with the benchwork. I'm going to bookmark this one. Thanks for the link.

    And I wish you and yours all the best for this New Year.

    Wow!!! It's massive!! It always amazes me when I see these huge layouts done with multi levels. One of those levels would be more than enough for me, but this guy has 3!!!!!!

    WOW! I wish I had only the money for all the gray paint he used to finish all that benchwork! :D :D :D

    In earnest: That's what I'd call a life-task. But the workmanship really is first class. I'll check back from time to time...

    Thanks for the link, Pat.

    Pretty massive. I for one though prefer smaller, very detailed layouts. That is just way to massive. Kudos to him for doing it though. If that is what he wants, why not!

    This guy looks about 30 somthing, I think he will be 70 somthing when its complete. I should live solong to see it compleated my self... he certainly pays attention to detail, puts mine to shame...have a good one...steve
