Can anyone see over Jack’s shoulder?  Is he working on a caboose?

I believe he uses a regular desk.

Oooh, a prime mover.  A big prime mover.  Thank you, Jack.  This makes life just So Much More Coolerer!  And ... more bitzenpieces to customize other things.

Back when AMT used to make 1/25 scale model car kits, there were parts included to customize the various vehicles to some degree.  Any extra parts, whether for the stock vehicle or the custom version, got set aside in a separate container for use on still other models.  After a while, one had a huge number of parts from which to choose if one were to make a custom version of something. 

West Park & Parkside are a lot like those car kits.  They can be made as is but there is a tremendous amount of room to mix and match, to be creative with the building blocks you’ve given us.  I don’t know if this is intentional like the AMT kits or a happy happenstance but which ever it is, it is one of many reasons I look forward to seeing what else comes along the line. 

mahalo nui loa for your continued kindness and generosity.

Considering the Curious series, I kinda doubt the “regular” part.

Thanks everyone for the positive feedback, as always, it’s appreciated smile

Yea there’s more plans to do other trains as well as a few other non-trainy items too wink  They are quite technical though, so I have to intersperse it with less taxing items for the sake of my sanity - but rest assured they will be along soon enough.

Re the mix and match stuff.. yes, I try to make a conscious effort to create products as versatile as possible.  I don’t always get it right and sometimes I miss the obvious things, but I try to think of all the different scenarios as I go along.

It’s ‘cuz we luvz ya, Jack! grin

Okay, first off, what’s this “sanity” thing I’ve seen it mentioned elsewhere and from the sounds of it, it seems something to be avoided at all possible opportunities.

Oooh, maybe I’ll get my box cab after all!  wink  Seriously, every time you come up with something for this, GIS or the Carnival fairway*, it either goes in the wishlist for purchase when I have funds or gets bought outright.  The Curious series is on the block once I finish developing a “town” for them. 

* No Big Top!  No, no, no!  When I was a small young person, I was in one that got blown down by what is now called a “wind sheer” or something.  Panicking people, panicking animals and absolutely no help from the circus people either in escaping or for the folks who were injured and couldn’t get out.  Well, except for their own.  Fairways I can deal with.  The big tents, no.

Re the mix and match stuff.. yes, I try to make a conscious effort to create products as versatile as possible.  I don’t always get it right and sometimes I miss the obvious things, but I try to think of all the different scenarios as I go along.

You do a darned good job of it.  You’re also giving me an opportunity to learn how to retexture models as well as “remodel” them like making the passenger car into a sleeper, a combine and other variations.  I don’t think I have any other models that give me such a range of ... hmmm ... educational tools?

Hey Jack, I just finally picked up the Olympus Mons Hanger. I see that it’s a Redhouse item, a fairly old one. The description and promos refer to an Olympus Mons set that it is supposed to integrate seamlessly with.

Does that set still exist, or was it something that was withdrawn and forgotten about by just about everyone, apart from the reference in the hangar’s promos? The hangar is an attractive set of its type, if there is more of that series I’d be interested in seeing it.

Hey Lycan, I got the hangar but that other part looks awesome.

* preparing a bottle of Scotland’s finest whiskey labeling it “to Jack” *. Will it return? (And Kludge, Scottish *LOL*)
