Don't you just hate it when that happens?

Having just watched the Minnesota Vikings put up a valiant fight against the Pittsburgh Steelers (my 2 favourite teams so it was a win/win situation for me) I decided to get on and do some work on Gonou. I was going to make a few more structures for the shrine that will sit atop the hill above the station. I have an entire sheet of .75mm embossed styrene that I have been using for the walls of the structures I've already made. Except now I can't find it. Anywhere. I never throw styrene away. So its about somewhere. But where I've no idea. I'm not worried. It'll turn up when I'm not looking for it. Just hope that time leaves me enough time top finish the shrine before the Granite City train show...

Business as usual then

Seems like all the worrying and depression over the purported demise of Eishindo was all for naught. It seems the fellows have reorganised and restructured (or whatever it was they were doing) and new items are hitting the shelves as I write. There is yet another new delivery date of November for the Hankyu 9000 and the KIHA 40 I won't hold my breath of course. But I can't help feeling just a tad excited about the fact. Hopefully they will both be here ready for the Granite City Train Show on December 5th. In fact I'd better get to work I have layout to finish.
