    • Larry,

      The cars and building look great. I like the weathering on the car on the right.

      • I checked out the catalog of diagrams list several posts up. Although hard see initially, I was able to play with contrasts and color to make several more easily viewed. Good info for anyone wanting to supply a model railroad war!

        • I have finally started working on the RR again. It has been a challenge to get a space in the new house organized. Thought I should add a new picture.

              Thanks Scott. Thousands of hand made sand bags on this layout.

          • Nice looking loco, Larry. It's good to see you're back at it.

                Thanks Jerry. I should e able to start making progress again.

            • Fantastic scene and the loco looks great also; that a "money shot" right there.

                Thanks Larry. It was a quick test picture, but I was happy with the result.

            • Looks great! When is the show?

              I know progress remains slow.
              I was able to find some 3d files of soldiers in 1/35 for sale. Working on converting them to 1/43 to use on the RR. The test prints are due to arrive tomorrow. I will most likely only be using the figures at rest. Possibly printing multiples of some in slightly different heights and mirror images to get a greater volume of troops.
              I will keep you posted.

                Slow is better than nothing. Thanks for sharing the update!!

            • This looks like a Good Project! "Resting" troops are always appreciated, and the running/jumping ones look like they should be in a photograph and not on the railway, as they are always in the same position. You're gonna need to muster a painting party pretty soon! Please keep the photos coming!

                On a rainy day I can do about 20 - 25 figures. The webbing really slows down the process.

            • Larry,
              Good find! Really nice looking figures! Nice paint job on the first group.

                Thanks Scott, the pained figures are from the store sight.
