Thanks guys! Catt there is a bear in the woods and yes we have plenty of em' here. I'll see if I can get a decent pic of a one half inch N scale bear. Cody I just use colors of the ground foam that match the colors on the backdrop and then use trees that have branch structures to them.
I've been scrolling through the last several pages of your post. It's all looking good. The backdrop really adds so much. Your bridges really match the bridges around Bryson City. I was through there again a couple of weeks ago (usually stop at the BBQ Wagon or Bojangles if they are closed on Monday ) I would love to see this in person some time... I'm afraid it would make me want to change to N scale.
Philip and Mark thank you! That's only the first few inches of the 5.5 feet that needs scenery. Thanks Bruce! Danny you are more than welcome to see it, just drop me a PM a few days beforehand so I can adjust my schedule.
A little more progress. The landforms and basic painting of them are done so the bridge is now in to stay. Hung a curtain to hide the clutter underneath and got the temporary backdrop up. Also got the card card boxes mounted and labeled.
