Scenery photos

Discussion in 'Photos & Videos' started by Peter Sardagna, Nov 20, 2006.

  1. I posted some scenery oriented photos in the Gallery under Pond Junction & Stony Creek RR.
    "Rain" is actual water sprayed from above as picture was taken.
    Shiny "ice" is freshly wetted plaster.
    "Concrete" bridges are painted hardboard.
    "Stone" bridges are hardboard with a thin layer of plaster, carved and painted to look like stone blocks.
    "Snow" is plaster of Paris sprinkled from a sieve.

    I have only one question for you:
    Where were you when I needed you as I tried to make realistic rock faces?sign1
    Seriously though....what beautiful modeling!! The bar you have set is high indeed:thumb: :thumb: :thumb: :thumb: ....Any other pics would be more than welcome!!!
  3. Thanks, Steve. But, don't be too impressed... I used a lot of commercially available rock molds. Only after much carving experimenting trying to seamlessly tie the molded faces together did I start getting the hang of it. Sort of. A geologist would probably say, half of what I did does not happen in Nature...

    Peter, you have a very beautiful layout. The mountains and rocks are very impressive, even more because it is n-scale. Looks like you love bridges and trestles :D , you are right, they are great :thumb: .

    Nice photos, Peter, and some really great modelling, too.:thumb: Some of the scenes are very reminiscent of John Allen's layout; pretty lofty company! :) BTW, I somehow missed your arrival here, so Welcome to the Gauge.:wave:

  9. Thank you Wayne, that was a serious compliment!
  10. Thank you all for your generous compliments They encouraged me to post more scenery shots in the Gallery at Pond Junction and Rocky Creek RR.

    I truly do enjoy making and looking at good rockwork scenery and that is some of the best I have seen in the last ten years or so. Truly it is.
    A fantastic job there.

    There's a section here where you can view thumbnails of Members' photos - if you click on a particular photo, it will enlarge for viewing. It's also possible to post photos here, then have them appear in a thread.

    Here's a link to Peter's photos:

    Pond Junction and Stony Creek Railroad

    To go to the Gallery, click on "Gallery" in the first line of words in the blue space beneath the words "The Gauge - Model Train Forum" at the top of any page that you're viewing. When you get there, click on "Member's Categories", then click on the one you wish to view.
