Hi all. I'm currently renovating a room for my layout.
It's 22' x 16' and will have coved corners.
My layout will be a freelancer Colorado narrow gauge in HOn3.
I've drawn the track plans for it, and I can't wait to start building it.
To prepare, I've been doing some city planning for one of the towns, called Twin Peaks (work name, yet to be decided)

Main Street, the town will be 8' long.
The station will be regauged to HOn3.

The street will go upwards in the back and turn into suburbs.

Very nice!

George D Posted - 05/26/2020 : 6:30:40 PM
I like the coloring of your rockwork, Michael and that's a nice neat job on your hardware store.

Graffen Posted - 05/26/2020 : 6:14:25 PM
I built a Timberline kit I had in the stash.
The Hardware store:

An old kit with some small faults.

I had to true up the walls, as they were leaning and too wide.

The shop windows, built from wood strips and plastic castings were a challenge as the templates were wrong and the windows too wide to get a good fit....
But it turned out pretty good.
I added the awning as I didn't plan to have a lot of interior in this one.

Needs some details, then it's finished.
Graffen Posted - 05/22/2020 : 07:41:20 AM
Painted the new rockwork today.
WS pigments.
I have now soaked the surface with diluted Modpodge so I can add the black/raw umber wash.

A "grasshopper" pump! Hope you can automate it, it'll be cool to see that slowly doing its thing. Don't forget a local tank to store the oil.

Graffen Posted - 05/20/2020 : 1:05:45 PM
Had some time to spare today.
I've painted part of the fascia, it looks so much better in black.
Then I found an oil pump on Thingiverse that I printed on my resin printer last night. I'll see if it can be motorized.
Done a bit more rockwork as well. I use ordinary plaster in aluminum foil.

There's a lot more to do on the layout.

You've been really busy of late, Michael. I've enjoyed the layout photos. The lighting in the buildings looks neat - especially in those night shots.

Nice job on the foam rock work.
Graffen Posted - 05/19/2020 : 10:42:39 AM
I made a bridge for the road to the tunnel.
3D printed sides and cardboard/wood subframe.
I've just graveled the road, so the bridge is a little wet ...

Sylvan car I also built recently.

Graffen Posted - 05/16/2020 : 3:32:30 PM
I made a retaining wall out of Depron foam that I scribed with a pencil before painting it with gesso and some paint.

I glued it in place with hot glue.

I surrounded it with my homemade Sculptamold.
Graffen Posted - 05/15/2020 : 1:22:11 PM
I made some utility poles today.
It's an Auhagen kit.

I installed them temporary on the layout.

I will add E-Z line later.
Tyson Rayles Posted - 05/15/2020 : 05:04:25 AM
Beautiful layout!
Graffen Posted - 05/14/2020 : 3:13:26 PM

Tested the new turnout control. I'm really satisfied.
Graffen Posted - 05/12/2020 : 12:01:46 PM
I installed the new lights over my layout today.
I use 6 W LED bulbs with 2 feet gaps in between them.

It's a LOT brighter now!
David J Buchholz Posted - 05/10/2020 : 11:29:12 PM
Been following along for the ride, silently .

Great work, Very Impressive!
Graffen Posted - 05/10/2020 : 5:16:03 PM
I installed lights in more of the buildings and connected them on the layout.

Now I'll have to see what else needs lights.
