West Virginian Model rain fan

Long time HO gauge enthusiast starting again.

For the last century or two I have been active in control-line model airplanes and have been looking for a change of pace.

Recently while going through some boxes in the loft I discovered a box of left-over model locomotives and equipment that somehow escaped my selling adventures on ebay of decades ago and it lit a spark.

Hope to participate, re-learn, and enjoy new aspects of this engaging hobby.

Whoops, rail got rained on.

Thanks Don, At 82 my fingers do tend to shake a bit and I do need to proof read my text, but that one got by me.

We spent almost five years at Jacksonville NAS back in the early '60's, Orange Park actually. Wife worked at JAX drugs in the city.

Might I suggest, if you are going to model rain. I suggest using artificial water. I think they sell jars of dehydrated water at Hobby Lobby.

I will have to try some of that.

I have made artificial water before using blue dye and plaster of paris on one of my past layouts. Messy but effective. Mirrors work well for lakes/ponds too.

This forum looks to be quite active, but I really haven't had time to kick the rains err rails yet.

My past forum experiences include Rimfire Central, the MGB experience, 350Z forum, R/C groups, and most lately the Cox Engine Forum all reflect my passions and interests.

BTW - Is there a time limit before you can post pictures, and do you have a "Host an Image" feature?
