After years making models in HO scale and never really realizing a complete model railway, I discovered O scale, and how much I really love building models in 1:48 scale. Then I discovered N scale. Perhaps it's just time to admit that I like building model railways of all sorts, and just get on with it!
Follow along as I test and experiment with new things, and have a little fun at the same time. I will endeavor to share as much as I can--

Virgin Church 02
Here is the Virgin Church under way as a CAD file. The drawings for these models are quite simple, especially compared to those I might make for a construction project. That said, even on "1:1 projects" I endeavor to make drawings as simple as possible, and suited to their purpose. As someone who learned how to draw when drawing meant drafting with pencils on a drawing board, I maintain a sense of the purpose and scale of the ultimate output--combining such an efficient approach with the facility of CAD allows one to work very fast. All of this is changing once again, as modelling and simulation supplant drafting....but that is another story. I have the pleasure, fortunately, of being in that hinge generation that left school drawing with pencils, and entered the workforce using computers.
