          • Kyle very nice work!! Your ability to blend foreground and background together is truly amazing; can't tell where one stops and the other starts.

                  • Yes it does. I like your scenery technics. It makes me look forward to start the scenery on mine.


                    • Hey fellas it's been a while since I posted any progress shots, so here goes.

                      First a shot of the nearly finished scenery/wall transition with the road/trail from the stop at Mule (where you can rent a mule) leading off to Jarvis Flats' fishing spot 25 miles away.

                      Next, I went back to Mr.John Allens' playbook, and hung a temporary backdrop; a blue sheet in this case, to see what photos would look like and to hide all the tools hanging on the garage wall.

                      Now for some shots of the canyon upgrade. I carved some cliff face outcroppings out of regular old beaded styrofoam, (it was the more dense type) 'liquid nailed' them in place and added some color ('cause I can't stand the white)...

                      I'll be adding more of these, (it only took 1 and a half hours) to the rest of the canyon walls. They will all still get a coat of plaster once they're all in place and then the final color.


                      • Kyle, the vista is terrific. I am glad the snow outcropping melted. ~mike

                        • Kyle,

                          You're rockin'it! Boy do you do rock work well. Nice trees too.



                          • Thanx Mike,

                            Thanx Scott,

                            I'm fixin' to add some more rockwork in the next couple of days, and then plaster the tunnel portal in Ft. Compton; which, by the way lost one old bldg., added 2 new ones, and saw the re-configuring of the towns' layout. Pics still

                            • I just couldn't help m'self... spent about another hour doin' rocks; or "strocks" (styrofoam rocks). Here's the evidence Yer Honor!...

                              That's my story and I'm stickin' to it!!
