Thread: Hawks NEW "MHO Junction" layout

    Lloyd,

    Wow, nice work on the drapes and room interior!

    The drapes I'm assuming are attached to the inside of the windows. The part I can't figure out is how you installed the room interior. In the photos it's out of focus which implies it's not up against the window.

    Can you give us more detail on how you installed the interior scene?

    Thanks,

    Jon...

    Thanks Jon,

    Yes the drapes are against the window. As for the room background, it is curved inside. It goes from corner to corner but in the middle it's 1 1/2" away from the window, it's like a "C" shape. Hope it makes sense.

    Hey everyone, missed me?

    Lest We Forget. As we reflect this Remembrance Day in Canada, and Veteranís Day in the U.S.

    Been a while, but not much to report. Since my last post, I went on vacation for 2 weeks and the week prior and after the vacation, nothing was done on the layout, therefore there wasnít much to report.

    Iíve had my first visitors to my layout and it was a pleasant experience. The first visit was from a group of four that visited Ottawa and on the way back they stop by for a good 2 hours. Itís always good to have different opinions, itís part of the learning process. Then last week, I had another visitor for another two hours, again with a vast knowledge, this time in electronics.

    As for the construction, Iím still working on my work bench. All my gyprock is installed, plaster is almost done and then the paint. My programming track is finish, I just need to install a switch to turn it off the main layout.

    For the rest of the year, my main goal is to have all my tracks wired and bench work area completed. I also would like to come to a decision about my 22 control panels. Will I put them on the fascia or the face of the valance (you would need to be 4 Ĺí tall to reach).

    Lloyd - Absolutely love the work bench. It looks great and gives you room to work on (and lose) numerous projects at once.
    We all missed you, but I also understand taking time off. If one works on the layout 8+ hours every day, it just becomes another job!

    For the control panels, putting them on the fascia would simplify the wiring considerably.

    Regarding control panels, flyboy hit it on the nail. Not necessarily simplify, but reduce the wiring. Although I like the idea of having it at eye level. On the fascia, they might need to be recessed as well.

    Thank you both for your replies.

    It wouldn't be that much more wiring. A panel is a panel. My system is NCE, I'm using push buttons and NCE has a push button board which I would put right behind the panel. Then from the board, only 3 wires will drop down to the MK8 under the layout for my tortoises. Both can handle 8 push button and 8 tortoises. Therefore the extra wiring would be 3 wires about 5' between the two boards.

    Hope what I said makes any sense!!!

    Lloyd,

    I just realized I never thanked you for posting the above info on how you did the interior scene. So thank you, the photo really helped put it all into perspective.

    Also, good to see you back. Nice work on the Masonite for the backdrops. Very clean and professional looking. And good to hear you had some visitors.

    Jon...
