Thanks for the kind words, guys!

There's a new Thunder Mesa Video Log out today on the Studio YouTube channel where I bring things up to date on the Undertaker's Shop and Boot Hill projects. Tune in if you want to see some decent footage of the Undertaker Shop Pepper's Ghost effect in action.

Watch here: https://youtu.be/phIDgZAdH-E

Dave, That's a super video update!! Terrific effects! And putting Boot Hill at the edge of the layout to frame the town along with the undertakers is a neat scene. Thanks for posting. (Sent you a PM)

Love it!!! You never cease to amaze Dave. Not only is the whole scene just fantastic, but your video explaining it all is well produced. Ver professionally done. You would make Walt proud! Keep up the great work and thanks for sharing what you do with us. If I only lived closer I would definitely make it a point to see your layout in person. I know I would enjoy it!

Dave,

I fully enjoyed the video. Very appropriate for Halloween.

Mike

Thanks everyone. Some here may be interested in an update on Verne's San Lorenzo structures. I have been slowly but surely adding interior lights to all of the structures that now make up the Old Spanish section of Thunder Mesa. Today I finished the job, adding some warm yellow LEDs inside the Cantina, Assay Office and Mission.









Adding light to the Mission was the trickiest job since it is made of solid blocks of floral foam coated in plaster. I had to burrow up through the foam behind the upstairs window to add an LED there.

Happy to have this little project finished so that now I can turn my attention to completing the rest of the scenery at this end of town. I'm looking forward to bringing the scene back up to the level of quality seen on Verne's original diorama.

Dave, Those warm LEDs add just the right ambiance to the area.
The latest Walthers sale catalog has an animated fountain. Now that you have successfully illuminated the mission, any thoughts of wetting down the one in the square :)
