    Looking good Tyson!

  3. Another really good photo, Tyson. As I said before, it's hard for me to believe this is N scale. You do good work.:cool:

    Excellent, Tyson.....

    The loading dock really looks like poured concrete. And the pallets look perfect.

    With HO seeming to get smaller and smaller for my fingers, I don't know how you do N scale so convincingly.

    N scale figure??

    "No-fingers Nolan" must be N scale but it's hard to believe.
    Great modeling Tyson.

    Boy I really love those comments about it being hard to believe it's n-scale, the only bigger compliment would be to accuse me of sneaking in a prototype pic (no danger of me being accused of that I know, but I can dream :D :D :D ). After the swelling in my head when down some I took this pic of "No Fingers" and Mr. Roosevelt.

    Bill Stone I'd like to take credit for the nifty pallets but all I did was paint em'. You can find them on page 415 of the 2001 Walthers N-Scale cat. under Micro Engineering. There is no picture of them so I had to buy them sight unseen (always a scary proposition). The concrete loading dock is balsa wood, with a light sanding and a medium thick coat of paint balsa wood lends itself well to the concrete look I think.

    Thats a big dime Tyson :D
    I'll bet "No Fingers" would have a hard time spending all that in one place. :p

    That Alco is one beautiful machine! :cool: :cool: :cool:
    Nice weathering on the boxcar too!
    A great scene!

    Thanks Charlie, but like the pallets I can't take much credit on the Alco. It's a Atlas factory paint job, I just weathered it a little.

    Are you sure he can stuff that BIG dime in his pocket or does he have to roll it home after a long day at work? :D

    Must be a heavy son of a gun!

    Yup, I guess his paycheck is bigger than he is right now. Nice picture!

    If someone ever drops a dime that size on you, you won't have to worry about the coppers! :D Now I showed my age cause I just let on I knew what you were talking about! :D :p :rolleyes: :D
