Thanks all!
Ron visited today but we were working on a top secret project for him, it may also work for this layout. I did put down some layers of scenery which needs to dry before I take pictures.

I'm sure that a few hundred knocks with a hammer will clear the mud. The model was purchased semi built and missing 25 % of the tracks. So there were some serious flaws that needed to be covered up. Mud was my best option.

Nice job with the tank! And great idea with the mud.

The way my current project's going I may have to borrow that idea... a lot.

But all I have to do is walk outside and scoop some up.

I think the mud by us is much redder.

To make my WW1 RR work and hold interest; one concept I need to work on is having different loads to move forward and back from the front. Since the military had only a few standard cars, the loads will need to vary to make it interesting. I have cut out a number of plastic sheets to paint and attach various loads to. This is the start of the first load. The shells need to be over the trucks due to weight. I hope to have powder charges in the center which is prototypical.
The plastic floor is colored with pencil lead and different tones of paint, not yet perfect but getting there. The shells were purchased from Bass Pro shop and are for air gun target practice.

Last update for this week. I started working up layers of scenery. This is far from finished, 4 - 5 layers of weeds and mud to add plus barb wire, old broken equipment, empty shells and such.

Thanks Greg, I wish I could have helped with your Fort York project. I do have many helpers from Canada, USA and the UK making sure this project come to life.

I have old school metal kit manufacturers and new school 3D CAD people all jumping in to help. More on that when the parts start to land at my door. Let's just say it has been an exciting weekend from an email perspetive.

Larry, this photo would be a perfect candidate to the green screen background.

Dave Revelia has a 1/6 diorama of Omaha Beach on D-Day. He took a picture with a green screen background and slid an actual picture in behind it.



Id love to see yours done that way.

I would also like to do that, I have the green screens and software. The struggle would be it would have to be in black and white as color film was not invented. It might work out better that way. If I can get to your and Daves level I would be a very happy camper.

B&W photos are the only thing available but it would still make a great picture.
