Well last night MilesWestern pointed out how my scenery looked to toylike and not Northern Minnesota-ish enough. He also posted some good pics for me to work off of, and some advice. I figured instead of taking over my Missabe Layout Progress thread, I could make another with the scenery itself. I figured I might get more reply to this thread. So Ill post the pics of my progress, and the pics Im working off of. Fell free to comment and please give any advice you might have. The reference pics: http://duluthsuperior.railfan.net/im...orca9_4_00.jpg http://duluthsuperior.railfan.net/images/sPCE_1.jpg http://www.trainnet.org/Libraries/Lib016/WC713.JPG http://duluthsuperior.railfan.net/images/dMiTLDs.JPG http://www.steamlocomotive.com/yellowstone/dmir234.jpg http://duluthsuperior.railfan.net/im...elton_Hill.jpg http://duluthsuperior.railfan.net/im..._Fairbanks.jpg Step one: backdrops, MilesWestern pointed out how nice backdrops can be so I decided to make a decent backdrop to go around the rest of the layout, pics comming.
