This site was created as a labour of love, not only to have a place where display and share my personal "experience", but also to try to "instigate" in some visitor to start some "experience" itself!
By the time a man realizes that his father was usually right, he has a son who thinks he's usually wrong : Here's where I'm, but I'm sure that time can cure it !
I born in the 1951 and live in Italy with my sweet 2nd wife, Daniela.
We've "scratchbuild" two big "models" :)
- "The Princess" (she's 33 now, sigh!): a Graphic Art "talent"
- "The Warrior" (now 21) : a game specialist, but with a strong scientific inclination... we will see!
Well, about my "Passions" .... here's my 2 cents worth....
I start to be a Railroad fan ....
well, you see the kid in this picture ?
This is "My Railroad" ....
When I was 25 I take the occasion of a vacation in the US and ... settle in Santa Cruz, CA,
where I've lived several years working in Palo Alto and other places in the Valley.
it was the time when the first silicon chip contaminate this world.....
This is one of the reason my present layout takes the name "The Valley before the Silicon"
I've start a Blog Site on this layout construction.
If you like to follow my "experience" on the work in progress, here is the link:
SP - Layouts List This list contain single owner's personal Layout reference.
I hope this list can push some undecided modelers to start the "dream" in a real world and to select one of the astounding panoramas along the tracks of the Southern Pacific "Golden Empire". If you want to add your layout to the list send me a mail.
if you have a Web site or a Picture album, don't forget to add the links
Please take your time and Look around, enjoy your visit and hope to see you again soon. Feel free to send me suggestions on improvements and additions.
