Hi all

Well thanks to some motivation from Karl A, I found some time to post pics where I am with this build. So far all the buildings are placed, not all of the huge amount of castings are in and 75% of the scenery is done.

Here are the pics





















I have a tree or 2 that I want to add aswell as some more taller shrubs. Let me know your thoughts. I love both negative and positive criticism.

Wes that looks awesome. Where did you get the barbed wire? I've been wanting to find some.

Thanks for the comments gentlemen.

Bryan the barbed wire is by Eduard and I bought it off E bay. Dan Pickard recommended it to me.

Nice scene, Wes. Maybe the road is yet too clean and should features hints of the passage of cars and trucks, but I suppose you're not yet at this point.
I particularly like the worn red of the building.

Simply outstanding Wes, I really like the barbed wire fence as well. The peeling paint on the pump and oiler looks very convincing too. Can't wait to see it fully detailed!

Nice! I really like the tractor yard and that style of gate-a common item not often seen in models.

As indicated by Chuck Doan the gate is a very nice touch. Would it be possible to see a few close-in shots to see the details? Could you describe how you made the gate?

Thanks, Dave Sarther Tucson, AZ

Wes,
Very nice! I agree with Chuck the fencing is a really nice addition to the overall scene.

Karl,
Catching up here the tractor progress is great, I never can get yellow paint right no matter how hard try. I will be watching to learn.

The gate comes with the kit and was inspired by Brian Nolan's machine shop diorama. I mentioned to Karl and Kevin how cool one would look as part of the yard scene but would be impossible to cast in metal... too thin. Karl said well then laser cut it out of the super thin laser board material. I did, handed the gate to Kevin, and he did his magic with it. A true collaboration! I have a few pics of it on my website on the o scale bluesky page...

Brett
