When fotopic.net disappeared a huge number of excellent sites seemed lost forever - a number are still in my links here just in case it does, as has been rumoured, reappear. Thousands of photos lost, many of which may never be publicly available again as well as records of people's modelling which are now lost too.
However some people have moved their photo collections elsewhere and one modeller has started a new blog - so if you get chance have a look at Colin Peake's new blog, O9 Modeller. It concentrates, as the title subtly suggests, modeling in O9. That is 7mm:ft scale using a gauge of 9mm. This represent railways of around 15" gauge - when it's done as well as Colin's Shifting Sands the results are quite enthralling!
