New paint and weathering for an old Bachmann stock car (with apologies to John Olson).

Nice job on the stock car. It's a nice tribute to a man who certainly influenced my modeling.
Nice job on the cactus and the flowering bushes too.

Dave, you never disappoint! I do love your video updates. They are creative, well produced and most importantly, very informative. You have been getting a lot done. And I do enjoy the background music playing under the layout. It truly adds to the atmosphere you are creating. In that segment of the video, I felt like I was walking through Frontier town!

You've gotten a lot done Dave, and it's looking good too. The Video really showcases how the towns layout fits and adds to the layout. I really like the new engine terminal too,

Now go get a hair cut, .

Awesome update, and as always the track plan is a work of art.

Love the update ... love the new track plan (though, to be honest, I was looking forward to seeing the On18 lift-out module ... ) ... always anxious to see what's next on Thunder Mesa!

CHEERS!

Just catching up!

I like the track painting, for the longest time i wish that paint range was available in the uk, i just googled and apparently it's popular with the airsoft mobs and now easily available, hurrah!
Nice work on the stock car and the track plan, i have to ask, how are you making the the layout drawing? it looks fantastic! (Sorry if this has been discussed before)

Thanks everyone! @Andy: I draw my track plans with pencil and paper, usually on blue line grid paper with gridlines every 1/8". That makes a nice scale for drawing with 1/8" = 1". Then I scan the drawing and add color, titles and other tweaks in Photoshop. I've used some of the track planning software in the past but still prefer the results I get this way.

I've been meaning to do a fancier Disney style paint job on engine #4, Earl Vilmer, for quite some time. Finally got around to it over this rainy weekend.

Nice looking paint work. Are you going to add special flags?

Thanks. I been thinking about flags. All of the Disney locomotives run with green flags, indicating they're all part of the same train I guess. Since she runs mostly freight, white "extra" flags would make sense. The again, maybe it's the 4th of July and Old Glory would be appropriate (I'm actually kind of leaning toward this option because the colors would look great).
