we're sure that whatever you do to the woodland scenics lps will be a significant improvement.
everything you DO is significant improvement.


if you suck at playing the trumpet...that's probably why.

Quite an improvement. Did you strip the original paint before repainting?

Hi Rick,

I watched a Jeff Dunham DVD today and I noticed my repainted guy looked an awful lot like Jeff's puppet "Walter"...ya' think?

Hi Bill,

Sorry for the late reply...haven't been checking in too much in the last few days.

No, I don't completely remove all the factory paint. By the time I'm done scraping and filing all the lines and blobs there really isn't that much paint left so I just paint over whatever there is.

Hello folks,

Been working on the scenery and trying to take a few photos as I'm moving along on this.

Here's a shot of a couple of the buildings with some of the scenery down but not even close to being done. I also added 6" more of gatorboard to the base so it's now 33"x13". Right now I've been making trees and painting lots of castings and it's been taking up a big chunk of my time.

I very much appreciate the comments, questions and interest in this project so thanks again to the folks following along.

Karl,

Really ramshackle operation there. Looks like Uncle Verno got carried away adding that little bit of decoration to the Mercantile shed support.

Business must be good if they have a forklift to handle the volume.

Karl,

I really like the little pops of color provided by the fruit, signs, melons, yellow forklift, etc. Makes a nice contrast against the gray wood.
