Firstly on Saturday while working with my offsider - Geoff from Splitters Swamp Creek fame, I completed the road over rail bridge for the Club HO Clubroom Layout. Geoff was mesmerising people with his tree building activity.
Following completion of the bridge I added some bracing to a number of bents that will form part of a viaduct also on the Club HO Clubroom layout.
Today I had a new offsider assisting me on our stand. It was Tristan from our Club and he was supported by his parents also getting into the act. Tristan is the owner of a magic laser cutting machine and with this, he scribed the deck for my bridge above. He also does name badges, signs, and various building kits in HO and N scale. Some of these are remarkable.
So accompanied by Tristan I spent today building the cream shed that Darren (one of the Tuesday Nighters) challenged a few of us to build some weeks back. I understand that Darren will show his off on Tuesday Night, as will mine be. I was quite happy with how my shed turned out, but if I did it again - and I might, I'd build the roof frame slightly differently. Mine is not 100% complete yet, as I need to stain some of the wood and actually add corrugated iron roof and the bargeboards.
Finally today I did a small amount of work on the Murwillumbah Cement Silo. It looks like I will have to concentrate this work on the next modelling night that our group has.
While at the show, I spent quite a bit of time, speaking to various exhibitors, shop owners, other bloggers, blog lurkers, fellow modellers, friends from work, and the general public. But a lot of the time, was spend unloading money from my wallet. Damn I'm in trouble with the boss. I had to restock the wallet with cash this morning and it is bone dry again tonight. Luckily this show only occurs once a year.
Now there is a Buy and Sell at our Clubrooms next Sunday starting at 10:00am I believe. So I will try and offload some of the excess items in my collection to help pay off some debts. See you next week.
