Mike,
Looking mighty fine! I'm with John on my favorite shot.

BTW, it looks like we have the same taste in photo backdrops.

Thanks guys! Bruce if yours came from Realistic Backdrops you are right. They were left over from my other layout, don't know if they will stay or not.

Well folks I need something to look like spilled grain/feed/seed at the unloading pit by the silos, any ideas? Remember this is N scale, thanks.

Hi Mike,

Tom Johnson (Inrail) mentioned on one of his threads on how he did corn. His looked great, even though it was HO scale. I will try to find it, in one of his threads, but I recall it was simple.

It might have been something like corn meal,hmmm now I am going on a mission.

Hi Tyson,
Sorry about the picture but I took it without a tripod.
This is some waste material(plastic) that Ken (Marken) send me a few years back that he got from work.
Color looks fine but I am not sure about the size.
In case it is too blurred that is George on his well known quarter.

Tim if you find it please let me know. John how did he create it? Drilling or filing some sheet stock? I thought about using mustard from my spice rack but don't know if it will attract mice or not.

Tyson,
Not sure exactly where or how this was made.
Ken sent me a box of it back when I lived in Connecticut and I think he said it was waste material from a production line at work that would get tossed out.
I will bring some when I visit on Saturday to see if it could work for seed.

Tyson, I just saw your last set of photos - I really like the whole scene! And I agree with the other guys... #3 That's a classic photo.

Thanks Mike, I thought they would have gotten more response, guess I need to try harder!

Philip sent me some tree stump castings and they look great to the eye but in N scale they are hard to photo well:




This is about the best I can do:



The good news is I got a new camera that has the option for manual settings so once I learn how to use it I should be able to post some better pics.
The bad news is that nothing much will get done on the layout while I'm learning and once I get the hang of it the better pictures will show just how bad my modeling really is!

WOW! Tyson, this is looking real terrific! Hard to tell the scale so I guess that tells you how good it seems to me.

Excellent!!!!!

Looks good to my eyes Mike.

How about a quick "how to" on painting stumps as I seemed to have acquired a couple or three recently.

Also the second picture looks fine.
The first has the color washed out almost like you used the flash.
