    I get very tired and can't sleep. I don't know if I can finish this project. It's late and I must get to bed. I hope I can sleep.

    Hopefully your sleep issue isn't serious. Mine is. Also I'm hoping that finishing the project isn't stopping. I do so much enjoy seeing your artwork.

    Hang in there. Take that needed break and catch up with your rest. We will wait to see your final work.

    I hope so. You work is quite the inspiration for us all. I am yet to get motivated to work on my RR. I lost my motivation. But now that the found what's really been wrong, I can get back to it.
    Keep it up Candy!

    I found that some model railroads get too big. It kind of overwhelms some guys and they can't get motivated. I find that doing a small section of detailed work is easier to get your mojo back. It doesn't overwhelm you. But this project is close to overwhelming me. I try to do a section at a time.

    That's not quite the problem. In 2017 I had that stroke. No reason for it. But i have not felt right since. Then i december i got pericarditis. On Friday i had a massive afib attack that lasted until Saturday. I believe that gas been my problem for awhile now.
    Hopefully with time I can get some motivation back in me.

    You've certainly been tested. We're pulling for you to have better days ahead and to find your modelling mojo again

    Detailing one of the office walls. I still need a clock. Notice the potted plant on top of the file cabinet.

    I made the calendar in two parts but I think this is the part you want. 2013111132430794.jpg

    Thank you very much, and since you made it, even better. That's going on a building. What scale I print for N Scale?

    I use, PaintShopPro, Photo I use the Print Layout function to size it to whatever I need. It's a grid on standard eight by eleven paper in half inch squares. N scale really is not relevant especially in a sign. You should make it to whatever size you want. Big sign or small.. it's up to you.
