Thanks for posting that, Scott. I was actually looking back on your thread before I began this project so the sketches came in handy.

Dave-

Any "Hidden Mickey's" on the layout, or at least rock formations that must be viewed a certain way to see a face, profile, hidden joke, etc?

I ask because I just finished a lightning trip to Arches National Park, and was struck by how many times something would appear as my viewing angles changed.

There are a few. But you have to find them yourself.

Maybe so. I'll probably host a small open house for interested parties sometime in the not too distant future.

Meanwhile, I've started work on a couple of small structure projects. Olson & Furlow's Saloon has now officially moved from Hanging Rock to Thunder Mesa and it's getting a new neighbor: Li Wei's Chinese Laundry. The black box is the start of a little miner's cabin for up on top of the Mesa.



This black foamcore box will be clad in wood siding. the ridge line dips on purpose for a built in sag in the roof.

Olson and Furlow are two of my most favorite modelers. Love it!

I too love it!

Is the laundry a 'real' mockup or did you photoshop it there?

OMG, road trip! Open house, dreams are made of this.

The laundry is a real mock-up. "Li Wei" is a very common name in China, sort of like "John Smith." It means "great." The Cantonese lettering spells out: "Laundry Room." Thanks Google!

Finished up the Miner's Cabin over the last few days. This afternoon I added some LED lighting.

Sorry I missed this question. I'm almost embarrassed to say that most of my close up shots are taken with an iPhone.

The shack looks great. So much charm.

It's only make-believe
