    Hello guys! My first model was revell-germany's 1:48 B-26C, and at the end it was mmm... ok. I posted some pics here. Well I've decided to build her again!! This time I'll add Eduard's PE detailings and also decided to improve somethings about the model. For starters I decided to scribe the panels of the hole aircraft, the model comes with raised panel lines!! So that's how started my new "Widowmaker"... after this a good sanding...some pics:

    Scribing panel lines, a horrible time consuming job, good luck with it, mate!

    Hey, maybe he's also a model railroader for N-Gauge. If so, we want more details on that!

    Hello guys! Well thank very much for your posts!! Yes, that´s my trains layout, but is HO not N. Unfortunately is one of those projects I seem never to finish... now I have this problem with the DCC system and a couple of auto reverse chips I must install for a couple of reverse loops. But now I'm hooked with planes!

    here's a picture of the engine terminal at Silver Creek... of course a LOT of work still needed...

    Nice diorama! I've never gotten into making the trains, don't have the space, but whenever I see them set up I'm always in awe.
