Hey, that wall plaque...I had one of those on my wall growing up as a kid!!!
Yes the lines are hand painted but I suppose you could do stickers or decals . Yes I did do some curbs and sidewalks , and even storm drains . hard to tell from those pictures . Some of the details are drawn on in pencil too. Cracks are done with a razor and lightly traced with pencil. Then its just glued down on a shirtbox cardboard base that was gued down first.
Thanks , glad people like the look . I didn't know how else to make roads so I came up with that . Any other quetions I'll be glad to answer .
Yeah that one hung in my parents gameroom when I was a kid !

Cool layout, I'll have to add some of your ideas to mine for my first layout.
Cool glad to know I had some good ideas 'cause I'm just kinds making it up as I go Thanks !
OK , playing around with my little digital camera trying to get some nice sharp quality pictures like everyone else seems to get. Not getting it ... but I thought I would post them anyway. They are a little better and there is a little progress to show on my little layout . Not even done with it and I'm all ready planning an addition to it . I also wanted to show my X-Mas present ... my new f-3 Pennsy . I think its a great lookin little engine .
Try this agian , hope these work better
OH! It seems it's coming together nicely! I like it, espically your foilage round the tunnel portals in the above photos, nice work! :thumb:
Johnny, Great Modeling & Pictures.:thumb: :thumb: :thumb:
Livesteamer, is that you?
To explain the very congested look to my layout , since everyone elses seem a bit more open , I'm building a western PA scene . Nowhere in particular just something I'm making up as I go. Its to look like any given spot in allegheny county's inner suburbs of Pittsburgh which is a very hilly and denslly populated area. I should work some Steeler signs in the windows and such . It does seem the less is more idea is what people tend to go for and from what I have seen from everyones layouts it looks great . Thats why I thought I'd 'splain my very congested look.
Yes it is me, I had my named changed.
ah HA! now I know, cool! I was so used to calling you LiveSteamer though..hmm Cool!
Alot of people are. I will still you LiveSteamer as my sign in name for the gauge chat room. Usually in there from 9-12 if I make it there.
Now you have done it Miles, you have broken Matthew's cover.
He was on the witness protection plan under a new name. Now Arnold Schwartzenegger has to come back and erase him again.
LOL Thanks Will.

No, sorry, Johnny, you cannot get in on it, it is now "Relocated"
Unless you want to help us move the Cheesie guy to his new identity.
