John, thanks for sharing all the neat photos.

And as Doug mentioned, lots and lots of inspiration.

Well done!


Herb

Thanks for keeping the report coming John. Certainly great to see the rest of the weekend that was missed due to organizing rather than enjoying.

Cheers,
Dan Pickard

Hi all,
This time some not very good news from Down Under...

It was announced from the Australian NMRA branch and relayed via another forum that Geoff Nott, one of the creators of "Smugglers Cove" that featured at the Convention as well as Muskrat Ramble" "Red Stag Lumber", "Charging Moose Mining" and "Leigh Creek" previously, has passed away today. Some of his modelling work was also featured as a photo display at the convention. I repeat that posting of my photos of the photos of Geoff's artistry here.

In no particular order
Lilly Flat


Leigh Creek Lumber Co


Smuggler's Cove


Charging Moose


and again


It looks like I missed getting photos of the Red Stag and Muskrat Ramnble photos that were also on display.
....


We have lost one of nature's gentlemen, who had an artist's eye for placement and detail. He was only too happy to share his knowledge about how hid did things and how he achieved such great looking results with anyone who cared to ask.

Sad news indeed. While I never met Mr. Nott, I knew of his fine work over the years. My condolences to his family and dear friends. Today, there is a void in the brotherhood, he will be missed.

So a bit of a sad day, with the unfortunate passing of a bloke that made me sit up and go "wow", and have a real appreciation for paying attention to detail when modelling. I doubt I would be modelling if I hadn't picked up my first copy of Narrow Gauge Downunder magazine and spent hours studying one of his articles on building the Red Stag sawmill. I switched from being out all night at dj gigs, to going out to the shed and building a sawmill as my first piece. Talk about diving in head first, but that was the effect Geoff's modelling had on my imagination.

Grateful that I've been able to look, touch and feel a fair bit of Geoff's work, and really appreciate the way his mind approached what he was trying to achieve. A genuine top bloke, who also did so much to promote the hobby to kids at exhibitions, with the long hours he'd put into preparing clinics so that kids could step away from their computer games, and get their hands dirty trying some scenery work.

Don't really feel like modelling at the minute...but will be into it again tomorrow, after browsing a few hundred inspiring photos of his wonderful art.

RIP Mr Geoff Nott...and thankyou.

Dan Pickard

Hi all,
Geoff's funeral was yesterday. Mario Rapinett has updated his webpages that feature Geoff's works.
Please see http://www.modvid.com.au/html/body_geoff_nott.html
Most of the photos on the top part of the page are links that will take you to detailed pages for each layout.

Enjoy and remember...
