2nd Dandyversary

Today is the second anniversary of this Dandy little blog. So I would like to take this opportunity to thank my regular readers (there seems to be about 10 of you!) and would like to encourage you to post comments and maybe even take part in discussions. I also want to welcome new readers and I hope that you find some sort of entertainment value in this blog.

As always, constructive comments and suggestions are welcome!

I strive to have the photos on this site dominate rather than text. Text gets to be rather "blah blah blah" where as a photo is worth 1000 words. So I dug around on my work computer and found a photo I don't think that I have posted before. This is a test shot I did with my brass horsecar model to mess around with in Photoshop to see if I could make the photo look historic:

Like I said, its a test shot, never meant to be seen. The horses still need their harnesses, the car needs a driver, and the car needs to be posed so that the faces of the passengers can be seen, as well as details on the streets and sidewalks, and the buildings in the middle need to be painted!, etc.

Sorry about the lull in posting as of late. I've been using a computer regularly for over 12 years now and for the first time ever, my computer caught a nasty virus and has stopped working all together. All my modeling photos are on there so I'm in the process of retrieving them. Pain-in-the-A! Once I retrieve them, posting will resume. So hang tight. (You know, people who program viruses should try model railroading, I think they would find it much more rewarding!)

To update you on whats going on: with the birney project on hold, work has resumed on the trolley valence, I also have a new project in the works I think you will find fun, but your going to have to tune in from time to time to find out what it is!

So check back later to find out whats going on! Another year of fun stuff in store, yessir! Fun stuff in store!
