Australian N Scale Convention part 1

Sorry for the long delay, where did the time go! haven't been doing much modelling, just keeping my head above water; however, last weekend I attended the Australian n Scale Convention here in Melbourne.

It was a fantastic couple of days and full credit to the organisers for a superbly organised event at an excellent venue. Numbers wise it was the largest Australian N scale convention so far, so well done!

One of the highlights for me was seeing the plans Ross Balderson, the builder of award winning N scale layouts "Sydney Central" and " Captains Flat"  has for "Newcastle circa late 1800's"... yes that is right late 1800's in n scale complete with sailing ships and more...

The first key building is well underway, the Customs House. Here are a few pictures:

All scratch built from plans and measurements. Nothing more I can say other than hurry up Ross, we are all keen to see more!
