To our new members.

I second the apology personally for any inconvenience in posting to the competition thread.

Please feel free to try again as the thread has now been opened correctly giving access to everyone.

I would also like to thank you all for taking the time to visit the Platform 1 guys and their layouts at what looked ( from the UK ) to be an absolutely fantastic exhibition.

We are delighted to have you on board with us and I wish you all the very best of luck in the competition itself.

Once again my full apology for any inconvenience.

Toto

I hesitated to post because someone mentioned shaving. :twitch:

Hi P1MRC, I'm Aaron, or Veers is my common nickname. Which you may recognise as originating in The Empire Strikes Back.., so I'm a Star Wars guy if you haven't picked that up just yet. 
I'm also a member of the Southern Cross Garrison of the 501st Legion, the worlds definitive Dark Side costuming organisation with over 10,000 members world wide, with the SCG being based here in NSW/ACT with over 100 members currently. 
I'm a fan of our own 38 class locomotives, and Australian/English rail heritage in general. I haven't had a model set since Granddad passed away several years back, as he had a simple dual-track oval setup in the garage. I've got a theoretical design from my girlfriend (to include her in the hobby) that we'd love to do first, however in the long term, I'd love to do a scaled display of the Main North line, focusing on Sydney, the Hawkesbury and Newcastle.
Which after chatting to Gary about it, designing it as a small set similar to the layout that was on display. could work very very well. Rather than my grand scale/grand idea design which would take way to much space and be heavily scenery focused.

I think someone said short intro somewhere...

Hi Veers

The small layouts or planks are a great way to hone your skills before starting a larger project.

Great picture, good luck in the competition.

For the New Members that discovered Platform1 at the Liverpool Model Railway Exhibition and would like to enter the compertition to win one of the models it's Easy
The most basic way to make your entry with a photo is

Click and start Typing your entry In this big box
If you would like to include an Emoji click on it and it will load at the end of the last bit of text :thumbs: insert these as you go along and continue to type

Then find the (Choose File) button below ( see Attached page capture). you can see it with the extention that pops up when using an IPad with your choices of where to select your photo from choose the photo very similar with PC
Then when finished your intro/entry and you have selected a photo and your ready to "post", click the (Post Reply) button the photo will then appear in your post just below your last text. :thumbup:
once your up and running you can practice loading to the gallery and adding photos to your posts not so easy with an IPad but easy as with a PC :hammer: Good Luck everyone.

Now let's see who's first to have a go. May be a bonus P1 sticker for the first one to post there entry.http://www.click

Whilst I was typing this Veers got in so a P1 sticker for Veers
Nice first post

Hey guys

Here I am with Jack



And here's some of my purchases from the weekend. Trainorama 48 Class were selling at a good price and I found a box of six S wagons to get a local goods started. It would have been rude to say no! I got my two other Powerline 48's out to compare. The Traino makes them look very average.



Runway 13 managed to leverage more cash out of me to buy a nice airbrush kit. I have a 1:35 scale Black Hawk kit waiting in my cupboard to be done up like my daily drive :thumbs:

Just got to get the man cave sorted and I'm off and running!

Reidy

Hi Reidy,

Thanks for your entry and I do apologies again for the issues on the forum last night. Great to see that you have made it in. You certainly have made some great purchases as well. I'll be looking forward to your layout threads in the near future. Enjoy the forum.

Cheers, Gary.
