First things first…GO DUCKS!
Ok now that I have displayed my “Oregon Wall” back to the Panther. For those not in the US the NCAA Football championship game is set and it will feature my beloved Oregon Ducks VS the Ohio State Buckeyes! Ok, as for the Panther time to start doing those pesky Fruil metal tracks. For those unfamiliar, Fruil makes amazing metal individual track links, they have great detail (these actually have casting numbers on each link) but require a bit of clean up, 162 + pieces 81 per side worth of clean up. I use a guitar string chucked in a pin vice to clean the holes the wires that hold the links together with will fit in. Then you must clean some flash off, straighten the guide horns and well off you go! This effort was aided by 3 bottles of Scuttlebutt Brewing Tripel 7, Belgian style ale, 9% good for steadying the nerves while doing a tedious task!
