Awesome weathering there Deano!
Hobokid, that looks good for a first try! I still haven't even attempted weathering yet myself
Hey, Hobokid, from what I can see in the pic, it looks like one heck of a rusty hopper. :thumb: Great first attempt.
The Milwaukee Show...TODAY!
WELL FOLKS, made it back from the BIG Milwaukee show today!:thumb: MANY AWESOME BUYS!!!:thumb: this years show was AWESOME!, MANY VENDORS:thumb:, and more layouts then i can remember seeing there EVER!:thumb: dad and i had a GREAT time:thumb:. dad picked up 2 engines,
1- a WSOR GP38, the memorial one. i have a few pics of it, it is usually at the round house in Janesville.
2- remember i told you guys that dad has his layout set up for CNW & the Milwaukee Road during the transition era, and that dad DOES NOT care what he runs, well, he got a NEW Amtrak engine to go with the NEW style Amtrak cars he has had for about 8yrs.
dad also got a pond base, so we could put a pond on his layout:thumb:.
NOW FOR MY LIST:thumb:
OH CRIPES folks, and what a list it is:thumb:. i have 10 items i have took pics of, this is why it will take 2 posts to cover it all. items i picked up that i didn't take pics of were, 6 packs of #5 Kadee couplers, 1 digitrax sound decoder(for my NEW PIONEER ZEPHYR!), 2 MRC Brillance sound decoders, and 1 LokSound decoder:thumb:. one thing i want to mention, ALL items are RIGHT OUT OF THE BOX. i haven't put ANYTHING together, detailed it, or weathered any of it yet, hey, i just got hometooth1.

I want me one of those! Who makes it, and how long are they going to be making it?
Andy, that engine is an Athearn RTR, they have been out for over a year, not sure how much longer they will be made. to be honest with you, the engine looks AWESOME, but takes A LOT OF POWER to get it to move, it DOES crawl though:thumb:. when i converted dads to DCC, it ran TONS better:thumb:. i am putting LokSound in mine tonight. -Deano
Some nice buys there Deano!
What a haul!!!!!!!!.........and I never even got past the 5th pic.........
I wonder why
Sweet finds Deano, I like the 2 rigs and the UP flat car w/the pipe loads the best:thumb: :thumb: :thumb:
Wow...!!! Where you gonna put all that stuff??? Looks like a great time was had by one and all...!!!
Steve, don't get attached to that NP F7, she's going to the UP paint shop here at the Rock Valley Subtooth1 .
Josh, you came to mind as i was looking over those trucks at the show. i thought you would have something to say about them.
Gus, you are 100% correct!, we DID have a GREAT time!:thumb:

Nice photos, Dean.:thumb: :thumb: I particularily like those last three: the trees and terrain look really good, and the bare branches are a nice touch. Looks to me like the diorama is a winner!
I have to agree with Wayne there. The scenery in the last 3 is jus fabulous! Can't wait to see what other ideas you come up with for the diorama
thanks guys, i hope one day to be the master of rust
practice, practice, and some more practice, never give up on it, I too have just learned to weather, well a few months ago, but I am still learning new things about how to do it.
Deano, great pictures, love the UP's Rock Valley Sub's SD90/43MAC & ES4400AC w/the coal train pics.:thumb: :thumb: :thumb: :thumb: :thumb:
