    There are 6 fence panels that measure 6 1/8 inches each. There is 1 fence panel that measures 2 7/8 inches. There are 2 gate panels that measure 1 7/8 inches each. There are laser cut cardboard fence post backings that glue to each each side of each post making the post 'thicker'. I am thinking of gluing just one per post. I will see how that looks ! :whistle:

    For being such small fencing each fence panel is pretty robust !!! I read that it is laser cut 'micro-plywood' (y)(y):D:cool:.

    I am gonna have to order some of these in the future. Still waiting for my Osborn Cessna C-172, and Piper, and Picnic tables to ship :) Make sure you show us the build process, I'd like to know!

    They look awesome!

    I noticed that the TomyTec "Triple Upright Bulk Tanks" sets are in stock at Walthers again, but they are listed as "Availability: Disc. When Sold Out." I ordered two sets, and the Walthers small storage tank kit.

    Received my new Rapido GP 20 tank cars yesterday and am very impressed with them.
    Mine had no issues at all and they roll very nicely.
    My only very slight disappointment was I did quite a bit of research on the car numbers and manufacturing dates as I wanted very early cars 1969/70 so I order the car numbers that corresponded to these early dates based on my research and they ended up being a little later than I wanted 1973 but still fit into my era. 20220709_081934.jpg

    Well some ebay purchases on the way in as I get back into the hobby. A MRC controller, Unitrack, a LL Mikado and a couple of cabeese. All supposed to be here this week, so I will get started on some foam core TTrak tops.
    And found a surprising number of N and HO stuff out in the shed from our move a year and a half ago.

    A recently arrived pair of Lowell Smith Railsmith baggage cars arrived. Not quite prototypical for either IC or NP but look pretty good.
    Also received an IC and an RI/SP Golden State 4-4-2 sleepers.

    It’s been a while since I made a post here. I have received a few items since the last time, but I can’t remember what I have shown and what I haven’t… so I will just go with what showed up today.

    enjoy!

    Finally got them. This should be interesting especially the picnic tables, so tiny. Time for a NEW Exacto blade :) Man I hope I don't break anything. I don't know why each picture was sideways of the individual items. Anyway I'll be posting updates anyway of the builds me thinks, unless I screw it up :)

    Some euro stuff. Top is an articulated well car by Fleischmann. Bottom is a two car add on set for my Ulmer Spatz RDC. Decoder controlled interior lighting.

    Not in hand, but I pre-ordered a few of the forthcoming Atlas log cars. (Had sworn to never do that again!) A very few is all that I can afford. :(

    Either you already spent too much or it’s time to get a new job so you can have a “new boss” :rolleyes::ROFLMAO::p

    After about six different layouts with unitrack, I broke down and purchase all new joiners. What a differance!

    yup...Unijoiners do get loosened up from constant use. I bought new ones once i figured out the final track plan for mine. (y)

    Even seemingly indestructible Unijoiners have a limit to constant snapping on and off.
    If your track plan is set... rails where Unijoiners meet can be soldered. Its a lot of work, but the connections should remain good unless there is a lot of expansion and contraction.
