Out to Queensland Raceway yesterday to watch my good mate Leonard debut his new toy/racecar. Minor teething woes meant that I (gasp, shock, horror) actually got my hands DIRTY.
On the way back, I dropped at John's place and here's some pics of his HO layout. I reckon on 400 odd feet of track, over two garages with a hole in the wall between them.  Luckily his prized Triumph Spitfire is a small car.

Bonus pic is of a Fiat X1/9 racecar that caught my eye.

That is NICE..! I wish someone made building kits in 1/25th or 1/24rth scale they would be great for diorama projects. I always admired the skills those guys have at train diorama building.

Nice! I often reference the tips and tricks of Model Railroad Psychotics to help me out when I run into weird issues.

That a serious looking X-19.

Ireland's biggest model railway was near me in Malahide Castle, it had to be moved recently, I must find out if it's back yet.
