Fall has come and the time for gardening ends up. Now it is a good moment to start the planning in the warm and dry living room. I tested some railway planning software, but I stopped researching at “AnyRail” – a product from the netherlands.
It has several advantages:
– it is payable
– it contains the G-scale tracks I need by default
– it is easy to use
– a license contains software updates up thru the next major release.
Some test laying of rails in usual gravel. It looks perfect and is a pretty cheap solution. So 140kg of that gravel costs about 10€….
Anew loco is now called mine. It’s a PIKO V100 diesel engine. The bottom is looking a little much too plastic for me. So I decided to pimp it a little by painting. I have left some Revell color in my basement. So why not get some some color on that gray plastic?
The sun is already down. The light is shimmering over the grass and the pond and fills the environment into a magical mixture of yellows, reds and lavendel colors.
First run on gras in may 2015. Just to get a feel for size and speed of the G-scale railway. I already bought a VT98 from PIKO. So I enjoyed running it in my backyard. Nothing fundamental done up to now. No further ideas about controlling multiple trains – just an analoge tranformer.
Experiental of acrylic black and transparent oils.
A stormy evening at the seaside. The Waves are crashing against the rocks and flow onto the beach. The sun shines thru by showing a nice sunset on the far horzon.
A view into the past of italy – the bay of Neaples. The vesuv valcano is active today, pushing some smoke into the fresh air of a nice evening sunset.
Christmas painting for friends…
Some trees in the mountains, screwed by the stormy winds during wintertime.
