We have been working on a bunch of neat projects since I last posted, all of which I can't talk about :(
We also have been busy with some personal projects as well. Jody has been working really hard at her running, and qualified for the Boston Marathon, by running the Toronto Good Life Marathon! I have also decided to create a short indy film. So I have been busy working on the props for that, as well as acquiring some gear for filming.
The story has been written, and the next steps are working on the story boards and shot lists, so we can be as organized as possible! I have a self imposed NDA on this, until shooting is wrapped at least.........But I'll share two images from the 3rd scene:
But now back to the final few posts on the train build:
Being that all of our buildings are, at the max, 3 layers of 1/4" pvc, we certainly needed a more robust backer panel than the pvc alone. All the pieces received 3 coats of heavy duty contact cement.
Before you wonder about the building choices, we needed to include 2 key buildings from the town of Stettler. One was the new City Hall, and the other was the historic P&H Grain Elevator. The far right building we chose, as it has been a landmark at the corner of town for many, many years!
