Tim, great to see you posting again and making progress on your layout. That last photo of the farm really gives the impression of wide open spaces and grand vistas!

Hope all is well in your neck of the woods.

Thanks everyone,

Bruce it is good to be back and learning and sharing here on the forum. All is well on our end and I hope your family is doing well too. Say hello to Bonnie for us.

Perhaps more test this weekend. I am hoping to get the dirt road process documented for Harsco.

What is the scale of the mini diorama? I finally found the Hermosa Tunnels thread, so I know that the helix is 7 ft in diameter. ou mention earlier something about 'forced perspective'. Yopu certainl convey the loneliness of the Wyoming landscape.

Very nice Tim, I like when you has all this unintruded landscape.

It reminds me of a scene on Mike Confalones MR where he also has lots of landscaping and a solitude barn/shed/house (I canít really remember wich).

Bror,
The scale is HO but as you know sometimes HO can be smaller than HO. In this case some of the little structures seem much smaller than HO. Example the tank, but the outhouse is proper size. I stood a little HO guy up next to it and he would not hit his head. so it must be HO.

Thanks for the comments!

Tim, I don't know if the (probably after-market) loader on that tractor (Farmall M?) had quirks that led to the bucket usually being all the way up when not working, but normally it's safest to carry the bucket as low as possible, particularly working across a slope with a narrow front end. The weathering looks nice.

Really nice looking scene Tim

How about a pic of the truck in the upper right of the first pic? Interesting.

Thanks all,
JB you are right but I was planning on using this in a mini scene where it was loading a truck or manure spreader.

Color is still not right, I am going to try color correcting on another computer and see what happens.


Overall scene the dirt road in the lower portion of the pic is in expermental phase.


The Hermosa tunnels is why the Helix exist in the first place, thought you might enjoy seeing it.


Heading home!


The redneck truck needs some weathering but I think the mini scene story is starting to come together for me.

Harsco I haven't forgot you on the dirt road, I will post tomorrow I hope.

Ken, You will see that truck in the next group of photos on dirt roads.




Worked on this beast most of the day, no modeling time Looks like it's time to add some tires.

Wow Tim. It's been a while since I looked at your layout. I have to say you are getting better and better with every thing you do. The title "Master" seems to fit now.

One of these days I will have to see your layout in person..

Keep up the great work.
