Tyson, I think your scenery is looking real good. There's a quality (or "look") to it that reminds me of the scenery in some of Dave Frary's photos of his old C&DR layout that he featured in the first scenery book.

Damn, er darn Mike I can only hope !

Well I retook that last picture, this is about all I can do with it for now. Maybe with a little more practice with the camera.............

Hi Mike,
Much better IMHO.
The tree in the center of the picture now looks as if it is coming out of my computer screen.
Like I said the darker picture has the 3-D look and not the flat look.

The "hill" is pretty much finished. The first two shots are what you see from eyeball height (approx. 6 foot) from the normal viewing angles. The dreaded helicopter shot is of the area between the three buildings.

Great modeling, Tyson. The detailing is just right - and the dirt area in the 3rd photo is especially nice.

Mike, the overall scene really 'hangs together' nicely!

No need to dread that shot. Not at all.

Mike, that corner looks fantastic! The structures and scenery combine to make a good looking scene. Good pictures too.

As you think, so will you be.

Thanks for the kind words folks. Mike the gravel parking area was a real pain trying to get the texure smooth enough for N scale but I'm happy with the results. Bruce I try for realistic angles when possible but sometimes only a copter will do . Rick the tip on working with the hue in particular has been a real help, thank you!

I have to say Tyson, that scene is a great example of what can be accomplished in N scale and could motivate many more people to consider that scale, (like me. ). N Scale magazine should do an article just on that scene. It looks as good as much of the HO scale modeling going on here.

Very nice Mike, The overhead shot is a nice addition to get to view. You have accomplished that subtle subdue look in the gravel lot. Getting color variation right in HO scale is tough, but to do it in N-scale. WOW - Great job.

The corner is super duper winner in my book.

Thanks for sharing and taking us along.
