Bill,
Just catching up on your progress. Your roof is fantastic and the whole scene has come together into first class work. As Les said this is the your best work yet, keep it up.

Geez,
Most Impressive...you just keep getting better, and I like that you are taking your time to finish each element. I like outside pics too, maybe try the tripod and that will help with sharpness, I have been using said device.

Geezer,

I lost you but now you have been found ...
You been hiding your fine work in this thread.

Very nice work on the building and scenery.

I use a razor blade to cut my kindling. Just make sure it is the kindling and not the finger tips.

The final pic in the 'outdoor' picture section shows just how nice the roof really is. Well done. It will be an interesting and eye catching diorama when you get your trees planted and a bit more ground cover in place... looking forward to the 'updates'.

Soooooo....I'm back at it again. Here's a few shots to show what I've been up to:

Some foliage "grew" on the tank support, along
with a good number of "weed tufts" around the lot.....

Startin ta look like something now.....

In case ya missed it - The score is tied:
On the right, a "leaner" and one touching
On the left, a "ringer"!
When Virgil is done for the day, he likes to
have Fred come over and pitch a few shoes out back....they also bring the jug from the front
porch bench.....

The railroad sent some gandys out to put in a
bumper for Virgil, as the cars were going aground....A couple of their chickens must have got loose when they left.....The gandy's will be back to add some NBW's so the damn thing will hold together.

Here's some of Virgils latest efforts....I think
he should keep that jug over on the bench in a
different place.
I'll be back.....

I concur with Brett... really nicely done and quite a few 'stories' going on with in the diorama disclose a lot of considerations were taken into account to create the total 'feel' of the show.

Lots of interesting details and mini-scenes there, and the story-telling is alright too! Well done.


Cheers,

Geezer,

Been following along with your build the past week or so. I love the amount of detail you have put into your latest work.
I love the texture and color of the tank at the side of the building. The latest picture of it makes it look like the paint really is flaking off.
I should really get a kit from the shelf built stage and turn it into i diorama some day...
VCery nice work anyway.

Very nice, and very inspiring, Bill.
The many scenes are full of life and tell a story. Only the acetylene bottles scene should be a little reworked in my opinion. The way they have fallen down, plus the relatively bright colors could be a bit improved in my opinion.
