    Yes, picture number three could one day make the cover of any RR magazine.

    I have to agree with Leo and my first thought on seeing that photo was the work Monsieur Testard

    was going to have to do to clean up after his horse was startled by that locomotive.

    Again I "surfed" through this magnificent thread!!

    Cannot get enough from your layout it's a "work of Art"!

    I can/have to(!!) watch minutes, and mostly more!, at your pictures from your beautiful layout .

    Greenery... yesterdays croundcover was vacuumed, what I had of trees ready were installed on the hill, mr. Testard's express delivery van found it's permanent place (not as if he moves too quickly these days though [:-devil]), some telegraph poles got erected etc... Mr. Philpot stands on the porch of his mechanical musical instruments workshop looking content, while the Rolleiflex man captures the sea and lighthouse from the hotel terrasse...

    As I said great scene. May I ask what you used for the light on top of the harbor light. Is it some type of ship fiiting?

    Karl, the light is indeed a ship fitting, an anchor light to be exact, and in a larger scale. I drilled it from below, and glued in a flashing red LED. On Ericsson's Wharf a similar light flashes green and on the end of Cranberry Wharf a thir has a steady white light.

    I see you have as many empty ice cream containers as I have for modelling purposes!!!!! I am now collecting empty yoghurt containers in preparation for adding scenic detail. I like the vanilla ones best - the strawberry yoghurt has too many pips.

    Can anyone explain this attraction to certain foods in order to model a scene correctly?

    Looking good as always Troels - looking forward to a photographic tour of the area soon (with lots of close up detail please).

    Yes Troels, now that I know it, I can see she's standing. On the second picture, I really thought she was sitting and I didn't seriously watched the first one.

    But even standing, I still find her somewhat mysterious with her immobility and far looking eyes.

    The lady near the lighthouse is clearly an angel. And I am a specialist in angels since my complete first name is Frederic Ange Andre. Deciding if this one adds mystery or not is therefore a matter of personnal belief.

    Although this is not a comment about the last pics, I must say I am quite impressed with the way the Grassmaster changes completely the appearance of model grass. This adds a lot to a lot of places on your layout.

    You just keep raising the bar. I think the sky behind the hotel looks fine. Very dramatic in fact. I think you better hurry up and paint that figure. I thought it was an old man in a rain coat. I like the wider spacing you give your building. It really adds to the presentation while contributing to the rural setting.

    You should be quite pleased with yourself accomplishing on your layout an excellence that many are only able to accomplish with a diorama.

    Thank you for sharing your work so freely with us.

    Thanks Mike for the link to these perfect signs!

    Frederic, I agree it would have added mystery if she had indeed been sitting ;o) I'll try to find a sad, sitting lady for those stairs! But did you notice the unpainted white lady sitting by the harbor light??

    Apart from painting a little on the lastly arrived Forney, tonight has been mostly spent covering ground... Heaps of different materials have been scattered, zapped with the grassmaster, blown (and sneezed), pinched and pressed into the white glue. Almost no bare ground left in Teal's Cove, and most of the hotel area is done, just waiting for the vaccuum tomorrow... ahh the joy!!

    Hi Troels I saw this link and thought of you.

    These old hand painted signs are truly "Classic New England" with the right regional feel to them. I hope you might find some inspiration. Seaview House could use a whale. :-)
