    Hey Buddy, it looks great. Can't wait to see it with scenery, gravel, trees, some beat-up pick-ups parked outside the buildings, maybe some empty skids stacked next to the walls etc. It's going to be a terrific layout. Nice job!----John R
  10. Ok everyone, i finally got some more done on my layout. You will notice that i have moved some industries around and also added a new one, the bakery. Now i need to make a parking lot and add some road ways to my little industrial complex. If anyone has any suggestions, please feel free to let me know, i value the opinions of all of you fellow modelers. Thanks once again!

    I love the Magic Pan Backery buildings, and yours look GREAT. Nice job on them and that looks to be a pretty good place and fit for the complex. As for the parkinglot, I used joint compound to make my pavement and parking lots surrounding the complex. I will try and dig up some pics or take some new ones later on today when I get home from skool. :thumb:

    Looks like fun. Curious? What are the overall dimensions? I don't think I saw them mentioned.

    What is the building behind and to the right of the bakery (up against the backdrop)?
  16. Hey everyone, thanks for the compliments, i appreciate them. As far as the overal dimensions of my layout, they are 19' x 16' folded dog bone with a 7' penninsula on each end for a turn around loop. Chris, the building your refering to is the Walthers Armstrong electric background building. Im working on getting the mains in front of the complex ballasted right now, i hate ballasting, but its got to be done. More pictures to come soon. Thanks!

    Thanks for letting me know what it was. And by the way, you, Nazgul (Steve), and I have the same thoughts; BALLASTING STINKS!!!!!

    I got a tip for those of ya that don't like ballasting..... If your modeling HO try ballasting N scale track then go back to HO and it seems sooo much easier. I've spent about a half hr just getting the ballast the way i wanted it then did the gluing down. Then a few months down the road went to the club and did an HO section of track. Its amazing the difference. I see you have a couple of those blue warehouse backdrop buildings (Bud's Trucking) I recently built one of those to make sure i had clearance for the track coming up to it and a couple mains in front of it. Besides it being fun to build, it comes with a lot of extra parts.:thumb: I really want one of those magic pan bakeries. Nice placement of everything.
