I'm calling this "done." This is my first N-Scale model railroading T-Trak module. It represents an alternate near future where the US Army uses CAVs. This is the first of three planned modules showing parts of Fort Talon. There are four Khan CAVs, and a Mamba Strike Vehicle, all painted with Reaper Paints, along with the cars, which were 3d printed. The figures are a combo of Bandai and Woodland Scenics, again, all painted with Reaper paints. Oh, except the dog - I left it with the factory paint job. I'm still waiting on a couple of pieces for this - most notably a couple of running teenage figures to show how they've abandoned their friend Ramona. Ramona and her friends thought it would be fun to climb the wall and check out the CAVs. The MPs didn't feel the same way. The Colonel watching from across the street with his coffee in hand: The CAV yard and platoon parking lot. I'm thinking about adding either an Army van dropping off a couple of pilots, or a semi trailer carrying a busted CAV in the empty space at the rear of the module in front of the two parked CAVs. Tech Sergeant Murphy directing one of her men to pull into the open shop while two of her other men are finishing the install of some new leg armor: And finally, the back side of Building 7, where it is obvious that the civilian contractor hired to hang all the base signs has no idea what a level is, not how to use it* *I have to figure out a better way to put these signs on. I ruined several signs, barely got any of them straight, glued signs to my fingers, glued my fingers to the tweezers, stabbed myself with a pin, broke a fence, and cursed like the sailor I used to be.
One of my other (long dormant) hobbies has been model railroads. Knowing I'll never actually even partially finish a home layout, I've long been fascinated by modular layouts. The modules are called T-Trak, and it's a standard for N-Scale (1:160) trains that ensures that the modules can be connected together without any major issues. After years of saying "I should build a couple modules", I finally stumbled upon a local T-Trak club that gets together once or twice a month to set up layouts and run trains. I joined the club to give me the motivation to finally build a module. Why am I posting about it here? Well, because for almost as long as I've wanted to build a module, I've wanted to incorporate CAV models into a module. So here's my initial mock up of CAV Repair Building 7, Fort Talon, Rhylan City, General Edward Pugh commanding: There are going to be 4 CAVs total: Two parked as shown in the mock up, one being worked on inside the building on the right, and one in motion having just left the building.
