    Just got some new pics back, & was amazed at the difference some background can make.

    Hey Charlie - I know my eyesight isn't the greatest, but I can't tell any difference. Is this a test or something?

    More than one photo at a time

    This was posted before, but I'll re-post for the benifit of the new comers.
    To save a lot of bytes posting two or three photo's, why not use a simple method. Using Paintshop Pro, or Adobie Photoshop, you can import as many photo as you like to fill an A4 sheet. here's one set I did today showing 8 photo's for only 153kb

    look on the his www page

    Hi Charlie, both pictures you posted are the same thing (I think???) but on your webpage I saw a picture where you were just first installing the Factory/Plant. The background apparent in the posted images makes a vast difference.

    Hi Justin.
    Man, this is weird! I can see different pictures in each post, but apparently no one else can.
    The pictures ARE on the webpage though, side by side, so you can see what I was talking about. (I hope?)

    What I see

    Charlie - Based on the pix at your web site, what I see at the Gauge are two copies of the "after" picture. Anyway, you're right, adding the background makes a big difference! Does it have the same impact when actually looking at at as opposed to taking pictures of it?

    I'd like to think so, Bill.
    Right now, that's the only section of backdrop I've completed, but I really like the effect of seeming like there's more behind that little building than just a flat, blue wall.
    Incedentally, if you look on the website at the picture "a view to the right", that's the same location, before structure or backdrop.

    P.S. I've edited the above post. Hopefully this time I got it right.
    Beg pardon - I'm pretty $#@!ed slow at this!

    Rory,JELX is my own locomotive and freight car leasing company.The loco it's self(I know you didn't ask:D ) is a Bachmann -8 40C on a KATO C30-7 chassis a very easy but not cheap way to get a decent running -8 loco.

    PIccies

    I get the same "after" pic as well when viewing the post. So I checked out the website and, yes, I can see the difference now. WHere did you get the backdrop?

    Hi Woodie!
    The backdrop is a combination of leftover kit walls, or "flats", & comercial, printed HO backdrops from Walther's, which I had reduced 50% to fit better with N scale.
