Sorry, I missed that part of the statement. My attention span is so bad I didn't make it to the end of your sentence where you said, "PLEASE DON'T!" Besides, I didn't find any actual products, just instructions.

Gosh, just catching up here. The town is really coming together, the elevator toward the front of the scene is a good idea. Its has a nice vertical appearance that is close to the front edge, but yet it has an airy look that allows viewing of the town strucutres.

You did that all on purpose, didn't you Mike?

"You did that all on purpose, didn't you Mike? "

Of course, you had doubts? Thanks for the kind words Tim.

I am finally getting the scenery done at the east end of the scene.





Kinda of an overview





This was a tree I made from stranded electrical wire and clay (it came out better than this pic did ), I had forgotten how long it takes. It may be the only tree that will be made that way.

Great looking scenery Mike, it's easy to see your "signature" by the colors you choose. I think the tree looks very realistic. Great work, looking forward to see more.

Good looking tree there Mike.
I need quite a few trees so how about whipping up a few for me.

I really like the first picture with the box car at the end of the track.

Mike,

That tree looks terrific! Hey, it is only time.

Also, I want to add myself to the list of fans of that first photo!

You are moving right along on this project. Nice tree and if you made 20 more of them, just think how much trouble you wouldn't get in.

More photos....more photos.

That looks great! The very definition of a rural industrial scene.

I like this scene very much.
About the tree : the first was very long, maybe the next ones would go faster?

great job ,Mike its looking reaaly great . I luv the tree . I think I seen this method of making wired trunk trees in either Paul scoled dvd or Darryl Huffmans DVD, I gotta try some. On my mountain ridge tree line I had decided the nicely detailed trees such as what you made should be on an area that is more visible so to show the detail.
Keep up the great work.
