Amazing work. What patience to detail so many figures at that level.

Larry, great work on the figs. If I could offer a suggestion, Games Workshop has a product for shading acrylics called Agrqax Earthshade - it's in their "Shade" range (oddly enough). They have a number of colours but this one is a brown and would fill the recesses, leaving raised portions as highlights - all in one fell swoop. MIG probably also has a similar one, Vallejo, may but I don't think so. It would add a level of realism with minimal effort.
Keep up the fantastic work! Cheers,

Thanks to all who stopped in for a look and for the kind words.
I am traveling on business but did bring 120 detail parts to paint.
Dave - I placed an order for the shading paint you suggested. I will give it a try soon.
Still lots to do in this project. I plan on a first showing of part of the layout this fall. A larger section next July.
Deadlines are good for me. Keeps me honest.

I submitted a request to include my layout in the 2021 Hickory NNGC last week.

Two years to finish, the clock is ticking now.

I took more figures on the road with me this last week and was able to finish 31. I know it is getting boring seeing all these figures but I need to make sure I do something as I travel. I need to finish something every two weeks now.

Impressive to say the least!

My grandfather and his brother were both in the Canadian Railway cop. My grandfather was wounded in the lower abdomen by a shell splinter...his brother carried him back to an aid station were he was pronounced dead. His brother insisted they keep working on him, he was revived and patched-up enough to be sent back to a real hospital. He ended up with intestinal gangrene but somehow managed to survive( no antibiotics in those days) and was invalidated out and sent back to Canada. I still remember the time I first saw the golf-ball sized divot in his abdomen and he told me just that he had been wounded. A few years later he gave me the piece of shrapnel( or so he claimed it to be)....but he never went into details about his wounding. A second cousin researched it about ten years ago and told me then.

Thanks all.

Thanks for the story. I am posting a picture for you. If you have a picture of your Grandfather and his brother I can try to get figures that look similar. Please share any other information you might have.

I will have my first public display (models only not Modules) October 18 - 19. I will also be bring reference material such as books, power points and videos of trains from the war.

Info about the show.

18/19, a Fri. & Sat. 9am till 5pm on Fri., 8am till 3pm on Sat. Held at Bishop Moore RC Hall in Gardiner, NY. St. Charles Boromeo parish, Rte. 44/55 Gardiner, NY. Exit 18, NYSThruway, New Paltz. Fee is $10 and covers both days. Includes any clinics and all day coffee and snacks. Nearby deli and restaurants for lunch.
There will be running modules and a few vendors. The primary goal of this Meet is more a gathering of friends to share information on primarily On30 Modeling. On18, On3, On2 are welcome as it is about O scale. You may bring models to share/sell/trade or just show. Our clinic this fall will be on weathering of locos, rolling stock and structures. Dan Wolschon, Les Davis, Myself and Al Judy will be demonstrating favorite techniques. Al will primarily be concerned with structures ( and how to get anchor chain around the front of a loco if we are lucky...>:)
Les Davis will also relate how the new Trench loco came about and John Weigel will be on hand with the new machine. You can order ahead of time for delivery at the event. Alan Carroll will be present providing the usual amount of carnage on unsuspecting HO models etc.
The following vendors are usually present but we have others to be announced: John Weigel, Peterboro RR, Ed Fillion, Deerfield Laser, Ray Kaminsky, Crusader RR service; Clem Oevich, Warrior Run Loco Works & Dylan Lambert with new 3-D printed offerings. Possible others would be Kevin Macomber with acres of product which he will not have room to show..!! >:) If you are a vendor and are planning to come let me know.
Main motel is in Newburgh, NY, Days Inn. Most stay there and carouse under the cover of darkness, but that is another story.
So if you would like to breathe the same air as On30 deity and legend Les Davis or watch Alan Carroll in action molesting innocent models this is the place for you on that weekend. Warn grandchildren that you haven't seen for at least two weekends ago that you will be available that weekend, also Spouses plans for Caribbean cruise! Also mind the heart attacks, appendectomies, bad colds, stubbed toes or any other excuses not to attend. I take all this personal..! Hope to see many of you soon and please let me know if you are planning to attend. Sincerely, Allen K. Littlefield
