You've gotta lose that "I do damn crappy work.." line. It just ain't so!
Thanks Ralph , I like this part of the building., when you can roam around the layout and detail scenes.
You're making fantastic progress Mike!
The scenery looks great, & I love all the little "extras" you've included!
Really impressive job on the water, & bridges!
It's great to see your progress Mike. Your scenery is very interesting and you have a unique approach to doing it.
Thanks Guys , I forgot to mention that the church is about Z Scale and was scratch built from brown craft foam and the Vega Beams and the crosses are .025 evergreen styrene.
Mike, I noticed that your ore hopper was carrying unobtainium. I had always wondered what that looked like, since we can't get any of it around here! I understand that there are many useful products that are made from unobtainium.
Super job on the layout! Especially the church and the cliff dwellings.:thumb:
Thanks Papa Bear
Yes , Unobtainium is a very rare mineral ! I stumbled on it one day after many attempts to make a fortune in other things .
I was just never sucsessful before . You may not know this but I was the inventor of Nineis Shoes and frozen Radio Dinners , in fact it is said that a great great amourous grandfather was said to have been an expert at three play.
Thanks Papa , Mike
Here are some pictures of the new upper level and the new road base, and a shot from the Main Street overpass.
Looking good Mike!
Looking real Nnice! Great job!
Thanks Tom and Ty. Tyson , I'm glad you have decided to stick around!
I'll post some of the mountain stream and snow soon.
Very nice work Mike, how did you make your hills? They look great!
yeah what he siad!
Really looking sharp there Mike. Keep us posted. Jim
That looks good there, espically the yard.
Thanks Guys !!!
Mike , the hills are mostly aluminum screen wire stapled to the homasote and formed into a general shape , then rock castings , and hillsides are wet wadded up news paper covered with wet paper towels and then the plaster goes on.
Other hills are stacked and cut foam.
I'll try to take a picture inside the helix so you can see , when I post the painted road and helix mountain.
Keep up the great work Mike. FRED :thumb:
Love the yard shot :thumb:
Here is a shot of the mountain progress.
