WOD Meet

Peter Mumby is well underway painting his wall section. The WOD supplied us with the colouring we needed for the walls, concrete and windows.
WOD "Make and Take" Fall Clinic
The Western Ontario Division of the NFR-NMRA held their second fall meeting here in London, Ontario yesterday. Peter and I attended to build an Imagine That Laser Art kit. The kit the group of 13 worked on was the DV Ross kit. I had already built this kit and posted about it back in the summer so another kit was chosen. I worked on the larger Olympia Tool and Die Co. which I am doing as a building flat.

It was a morning gathering which ran from 9-1pm. A small layout tour of 3 area layouts followed. Some modelers had their kits painted and assembled before we left although detailing still needed to be done. Peter and I got our walls painted with windows and doors added. We will work on completing this project on our Monday workdays. I guess being the closest table to the coffee and treats slowed us down a bit. Link to ITLA that is below if you are thinking of building your own version...George Dutka

The gang poses at the end of the day for a group photo in front of the ITLA display.

Two of the Ross buildings on display for inspiration.
The gang getting started on the kit. Most of the guys wondered were the plastic glass sheeting and signage was. To there wonders they are told it is inside the instruction book. Seems no one thought of looking at the instructions.

Peter is happy to take a break and smiles for the camera. Note the counter behind Peter which had a nice display of chocolate butter tars. We sure had a mess going on our table sticky fingers and all.

Another of the modelers table part way through the morning.

Here we see WOD Superintendent Steve Juranics model near the end of the day. Steve talked us through construction of this structure.


  1. Happy to see ITLA kits getting out there. They're real sturdy, and beg for the interiors to be decorated...
