Today I have a lot of Jigstone work done. I build the ramp for getting the tracks to the bridge. Not not much more to tell….
Another nice saturday – so time to proceed to work in the garden. So I build the basement for further tracks and installed the thrid joint of the station. That was a little tricky, because I had to lengthen the tracks to fit. Anyway – I got it done 🙂
As you may know from some previous posts, I install some entry points for the power supply every 2 to 3 meters (6 to 9 feet). Inbetween the entry points I have put a tube into the gravel, that is usually used for electrical installations. I try to keep it straight. So it’s getting a nobrainer to push the cables in after the entry points are fixed.
Received again some metal plates to seperate gravel from dirt. So I knocked them vertical into the dirt, shaveled out the earth in between, put a liner below and put the first layer of gravel above.
I temporarlely layed the joint above in order to see, if the markers are placed in the right position.
It still looks like a huge construction set, but as soon as the tracks are layed and some plants are set, it will look awesome. At least in my mind already…
We had nice weather – first day since a while. So I decided to leave office earlier than normal and to work a little in garden, which was a perfect decision! I finallizen der framework of my pond, cutted the liner and put some rocks as a frame around the pond.
Today I started building with my “LEGO in concrete” and build the first part of a bridge. The framework is done by using the Jigstones. The room between isfilled up by rapit cement.
My first impression: Looks great!
Today I started the mass production of Jigstones. I call it now “concrete Lego” . The rapid cement drys within 30 minutes. So the forms run “hot”. I bought about 15kg of that cement today in the hardware store. So my workbench is getting full of stones…
As soon as they all dryed up complete, I’ll start constructing the ramp for the bridge.
