Shelfie4 Progress

Having been made redundant late last year, things slowed a little on the modelling front. However, I am now progressing with Shelfie4 and am currently working the building locations and physical sizes. Once I’m satisfied with them it’ll be a pretty quick completion, it needs to be as the layout is going to Larkrail in Bath this July. The left hand end of the layout is proving easier to view block as there’s no hole in the backscene!

Another element I’m going to experiment with is magnetic uncoupling. I’ve tried rare Earth types on Shelfie3 with some success, and they may work with the Kadee types in use on Maple River. Failing that it’ll be ‘the hand of God’, one thing I do need to do is standardise the knuckle couplings with a closer to scale size unit. Any suggestions gratefully received!

So that’s where we are the moment, Shelfie3 ticks over in the background too and some TT and N project ingredients are arriving too. So there’s stuff to be getting on with, as ever, thanks for taking the time to drop by.
