    Another small addition to the corner Ntrak module I am making.
    A small corner serving building and the roof rafters. All cut out of cerealboard. The roof is in the background.

    Robin do you really use only that breakaway knife even for those small intricate cuts? Will this be a Stewarts drive up with the skating waitresses?

    I've got it figured out, Robin is really Santa Claus, he has his elves build these structures! One person couldn't POSSIBLY do all that work that fast!

    Seriously though Robin, amazing as always.

    I think he is singlehandedly keeping the snap blade knife and Kellogs in business. -x :wave:

    Pay no mind to those doubters, we all know you are the protoype for the six million dollar man TV show. (see the other thread on this subject):D :D

    Well, if you're not, you surely work like him, and all of it great. Can't wait to see how this one turns out:thumb: :thumb:

    Does he run a request line? I would like to see him build a nuclear power plant so I can see how he does it and try and build one myself. -x

    Thanks for the kind responses folks
    Now that you mention it Dash there is a nuclear power plant in Pickering just east of Toronto. It is on the shores of Lake Ontario.
    Maybe one of these days when I have finished building the 2 Ntrak corner modules that are going to Spitfire's BBQ.
    Belg the breakaway blade knife is all I need. Nothing else comes close

    Well Jimmy. The wife and I haven't had the opportunity to have lunch, dinner or breakfast at Robins, but we did have coffee and snacks with him and Letty in Abbotsford, east of Vancouver BC when they came out that way to visit their new Granddaughter. And what a cute babe she was.

    I would guess it took Robin only about 3 hours to build what is there.

    Robin. I took a second look at the picture and noticed your pencil is getting pretty dull.

    Nucular power plant

    Robin:
    If you heard the news today, you know that you may not have to build a model of the Pickering plant; the government may soon just be giving it away (free to good home...)

    I don't know if that is good news or bad news David.
    Back to the old drive- in days.
    Have to figure out the depth of field on my camera but this will give you an idea of how it is progressing.
