That station is a real beauty! And the town promises to have many, many interesting scenes ... no doubt Verne will be pleased to be a part of it!

Cheers,

Thanks Dallas.

Here's the result of today's efforts. I still need to do the final paint finish on the new rockwork, but I wanted to see how things were looking with the structures and mock-ups back in place. The next painting steps will tone down and lighten up all of that red. With any luck I'll get to that tomorrow.

It is always surprising how a little paint makes such a difference. Looking good, Dave.

Have not posted in a while, but others have been echoing my sentiments. The town scene will really be nice. One thing I love about your modeling is how much character you pack into a small area while using the scenery as a visual divide between other scenes only inches away. I could see this scene being modeled on a curved corner module of a portable layout. I look forward to how you populate the scene to tell some story. Great work (is it really work?) as always.

Been following alone,Dave. Really love the retaining wall and the slight elevation of the buildings adds so much interest and looks so natural. Always enjoy catching up with the layout.

Cheers, Heath.

Thanks guys!

Finished the color work today on the new rocks behind Thunder Mesa town. Here I've Photoshopped in the backdrop to help me visualize the finished scene. Next will come ground cover in the form of sanded grout, real rocks and red Sedona dirt.

Dave, your making great progress! The town of Thunder Mesa looks great, as does the rock work behind it.

Looking great, Dave. Your mockups look better than some of my buildings. Looking forward to more.

Just a little detail work today. I realized that I should probably finish the board sidewalks in town before adding ground cover to the roads. The stone steps were carved from dense gold foam (Balsa Foam) and the wood planks are coffee stir sticks, distressed with a razor saw and stained with a shoe-dye/alcohol mixture.
