Latest Protothrottle Receivers. Slightly smaller footprint, same features.
Got the new Burnley Bridge installed. Also did some concrete shell work on the mountains. Patched the one big hole Sophie put in the side when she wanted to sniff the moss. Cured up pretty well, now for some color, concrete grey is a bit boring. Lots more work to do, I will probably tear down Gilbert and rework that, I need to find a better way to make a small city street and I also need a deeper layer of soil.
I seem to have a lot of time on my hands so I decided to construct a country store for my little town of Burnley out on the Layout. This combines the basic construction method I’ve come up with using the CNC with some 3D printed detail parts I got off of https://www.thingiverse.com/
Everything is colored with rattle can spray paint and the details and sign were printed on my good ole HP Photosmart ink jet. Generous amounts of matte spray (clear) finish were applied to the structure and each of the posters and signs. It got it’s first steady rain last night and still looks crisp, we will see how hard the weather is on it over the next few months.
Finally got the deck/porch built up and stained. Also constructed the main shelf. This will come out at some point when I insulate the shell and put up wall board but for now it will do fine.
A very nice shot by CFC of my airplane at one end of the rainbow. I think I need to get out and fly more. I’ve been pretty slack the last few years.
So here is the chicken crew. Mostly full grown. Two Roosters and 12 Hens. Have had no fox problems since I ringed the bottom of the pen with an electric fence. Should get about a dozen eggs every other day or so with all these.
Sophie is the Alpha Dog now. She 18 months old or so and good lord does she have energy.
Finished (more or less) my farmhouse cottage and a small barn. These will go into the Burnley area on my layout. The Barn needs some outside lighting and a few details, the house is all wired up but needs to have the windows frosted.
