 :up: :up: Hey Steve, Have you been hanging out with Andy too much? (he is a good teacher, we all learn from him) I see the same attention to detail and quality modeling! You layout scenes are great, right down to the track detail! The shelf layouts are really becoming the way to go. Keep up the excellent modeling! Looking forward to seeing much more!

Here are a few more pics (again, some of these are older photos):


















That is all for this side of the layout......I have started work on the right side and will work my way back to the river (middle).

Thanks for looking!

Thank you Andy and RC....I appreciate the kind comments!  :up:
I have been modeling for about 5 years now and this is my second layout (as Andy already knows).
It has been a lot of fun to choose prototypes and make buildings. I've tried a lot of new (for me) techniques and that always keeps it interesting.

I'll get some more pics up as soon as I take some newer ones.

Thanks again

Shelf Layout

I am in the process of building a 1ft x 21ft shelf layout. Right now the left half is about 95% done. The right half is just blue foam with the track in place and ballasted.
Here are some shots of the "completed" half.....some pics are older,  and the scenes may vary a bit as work progressed:
                                             











More soon  ;)
