Hi Bill,

Since it is a graphic file the resolution doesn't make as much difference as it would with a photo, but I can set the resolution to whatever I want and resample (the master version is not a JPEG). I am not a fan of the blurring effect, but I also know the printed version will not be as sharp at the digital version either. An since it is such a big file to print, I really wouldn't want to try something so drastic and not know if it would work in printed media.

Thanks for the input Frank, and I agree with you.

Take care,
Rob.

Rob,
Everything you did far exceeded my expectations of where this project will go. You need to make sure you sign this masterpiece before it is sent off to the printer.
As I have said many times, this project would be no where without the help I am getting from around the world. Thank you so much.

Really excellent work Rob. Larry already had a masterpiece with this layout, but your fabulous backdrop, will just add to it even more.
Well done team.

"Lest We Forget" should be "Commit This to Memory". Because we seem to forget this lesson every day.

Thanks Larry! Well the project is back in your hands now and the backdrop is on the way to the printers ... I can't wait to see how it turns out.

ROB: Thanks for the kind words ... it was my first attempt at doing this ... and I am thankful that Larry had enough faith in me to give it a hook.

FRANK: You're are quite right that we have to keep the memory of their sacrifices alive.

LARRYC: Thanks for the kind words ... I was more than happy to contribute to the outstanding work and countless hours that Larry has already put into this project.

Take care,
Rob.

Thanks Rob,

I have placed the print order with fellow ON30 modeler Joey Ricard
tracksidescenery@gmail.com
He has reviewed the files and thinks I am good to go.
Can't wait to test them out.

As an update I placed an order for black foam core to start to create the blown up town.

While I wait for other supplies, my transport cases are here. I can fit two levels of locomotives in a case. Looks like 16 - 20 critters in one case which should be all I need for a show. Eleven critters will in the bottom level.

Larry looks like you've solved the transportation dilemma, so it's "Case Closed".

Black foam core - do you have a Dollar Tree or other type dollar store near you? I get mine there for $1 a sheet.

I used some of that grey/black foam some years back. It went hard and began to breakup. So be careful with what foam you use.

Now that I know what my backdrop looks like I need to get back to creating models.

I have enough vehicles and details to finish all but the town scene. Time to try and see if I can build some war damage.

Here is the start of the town church. Foam core board with Foggy Mountain wall paper stone wall and some windows I had in the scrap box. I think I will be able to empty out all my scrap boxes filling the model with rubble.

Hi Larry,

Just a thought ... when you're making the rubble would you be better off carving foam to shape then gluing on a layer of very coarse O-scale ballast and crushed plaster? You could even poke some steel shapes and timbers in the foam before applying the coat of ballast/plaster.

Take care,
Rob.
