    N Scale video camera?

    Do a search for an SQ8 camera, it's only 7/8" square and 3/4" deep. No LCD screen at this size of course. I found one on eBay (around $8.00) this spring and ordered it. After more than two months it didn't show ups, so I checked Amazon and they had them for about twice as much, plus postage of...

    The NMRA and you?

    Seems to be a common feeling among posts re the usefulness of belonging to the NMRA. I too belonged for many years, served as the Achievement Program Chairman of the NER for five years. But I personally was not getting anything out of being a member. So I left, haven't missed anything since.

    Tunnels and Swamps?

    I've modeled a swamp section on my HO scale modules. Cut a depression in the plywood base and added plywood underneath the hole. Laid the track and poured in Envirotex Lite up to the level of the rail. A tricky proposition, as the Envirotex is fairly thick and flows slowly, I didn't want it to...

    anyone knows the manufactor of this ?

    Think I've seen photos of the caboose as a Revell item. Could be wrong.

    Caboose markings

    Looks more like a COTS panel, where service and lubrication dates are kept. ACI labels are stripes.

    Delapidated Store in O Scale

    I recently completed this dilapidated O scale general store. Used article and plans in the Sept/Oct 1985 issue of the Narrow Gauge & Shortline Gazette by Joe Crea for his half inch scale model.

    Jordan Spreader snow plow

    Your model plow is a Russell snow plow, the prototype photo shows a Jordan spreader. Walthers did have a Jordan spreader model several years ago but it was an older version of your prototype.

    Light Diffusing Question

    I've used "magic" transparent tape on the insides of windows in some of my structures to diffuse the light and block viewers from looking inside. Also to make some windows appear to be in rooms that are not occupied, I've added black electrical tape to the insides.

    What airbrush is best?

    That's a major step from not owning an airbrush and wanting to do custom painting for others. Hope if you do get an airbrush you intend to practice using it for a couple of years to develop your skills. No one wants to trust their expensive models to a learner.

    Here's a Z scale layout:

    GoPro Hero 4 Session

    Prices for the Session have been mentioned at $399.00, so it certainly isn't the cheap one! I think all GoPros are way overpriced, as shown by the fact that clones are available for a fraction of their cost. There isn't really much to them, especially when compared to a $400.00 full sized...
