But imagine my surprise to find MY words, MY photos, and a link to MY blog that I supplied to you here, on another forum. NOT COOL.

.

The same thing has happened to me. Someone posted my demonstration/example photos for a "how to" example I made for this forum on another forum.

.

A forum member in here told me about it.

.

The Model Railroader forums are the ONLY model railroad forums I ever have posted in. If you see STRATTON AND GILLETTE pictures anywhere else, it is not me, and I do not approve. This where the SGRR calls home.

.

Now if I could only get some of my work to show up in the printed magazine...

Awwww...

I found one of my old photos, uncredited and out of the original context,  used to illustrate something else.  I smiled and laughed, and felt that I had actually "made it."

I am proud to see my work used like that.  I think it brings us closer as modelers to share ideas, and use our postings to further share the hobby with others.  I post pictures for them to be seen, not to rest forever on some photo hosting site.

By the way, as a Bruins fan, I was supposed to hate Bobby Clark, but how can you help but love someone who played the game with such intersity?

It takes an iron man to play with a toy iron horse.

I just Google things and I find my own stuff coming up all the time especially in Google images. Once it is public it is public. My kids' movie pics are not shared with anyone, not even our closest family members. He would be blacklisted and never work in the industry again if they leaked out.

This is all pretty outrageous. A few years back, I sent some photos of a custom backdrop that I had specially made for my layout to the personal email account of a fellow forum member. I never for a moment expect him to post those photos on this forum or any other forum. But the clown had the audacity to post my private photos on another forum. I didn't even know about it until I saw my custom backdrop on Google Images. I had to demand that he delete the photos on the other forum. It takes all kinds, I guess.

Actually I'm pretty sick of seeing his ugly mug on three to five of the same threads on the first page of every forum I visit. It's like he's trying to run a campaign to make the internet all about Brian. If you post on a forum and don't get an answer, that's one thing, but taking it upon onesself to try and forcibly merge different forums by cross-posting every dang thing six ways from sunday is beyond uncool.

I can read multiple forums just fine without your help cross posting everything, ok Brian? Thanks, bye.

German Made Viaduct Moldings

I was visiting a freind this past Sat, and he made mention of a German fellow who made very nice viaduct moldings. He gave me this reference.

http://vampisol.de/mediafiles/Sonstiges/BA_Lennebruecke.pdf

Good photos,...wonder if there is a method to translate this PDF into english?

PS: I just discovered the way to translate the page

Now I have to determine his pricing on his moldings?

Just discovered I never posted any pics of what I had in mine for my stone arch bridge. Its pretty extensive in that it stretches across that top portion of the bottom deck. Its only foamed PVC and paper templates at the moment until I decide on final slopes, and construction methods.
