    Comment


    • Philip thank you.

      Rick thank you and a steering wheel is in the works.

      Michael thank you for your comments. Those are some really
      good ideas for the foreground, much appreciated.

      Jerry thank you and for your keen eye. I'll tone down the front axel
      when I add the much needed steering wheel.

      Mike thank you and hope your doing better.

      • Rick is a photo of the foreground in question:

        It's 4.5 inches wide and 2.5 ft long. The other end tapers to almost nothing so that
        will be just scenery material. This is the area that needs a little more something.

        Thanks for any and all suggestions in advance.

          Ok so here's the steering wheel, thanks Bernd, which was previously a valve handle. It measures a scale 12 inches which seems to
          be about the right size for a tractor. Also painted the stick shift and front axle, thanks Jerry, a flat black. So now I
          think it's finished.

            • Bernd thanks. I don't know why, but I never even thought to add a steering wheel until you mentioned it.
              I guess it must have been one of those "senior moments".

              • Fine job with that tractor conversion, and the job done with those wheels. Great idea as well.
                The scenery space is small enough it could be a couple of oil drums on a rack, or RR ties and rail plates.
                Some ideas here I posted a while back; Old Discarded Railroad Ties - https://railroad-line.com/node/29994
                and another here; Railroad Tie Plates - https://railroad-line.com/node/29934
                and also here; Trackside Rail Supports - https://railroad-line.com/node/29881

                • Larry, you've already received some ideas.
                  You can maybe put a little scene like this all the way to the left so it's not in the way when reaching over and won't block the view of the shop.

                  Also maybe put a grade crossing in.

                  • Thank you guys for all the great ideas....now I'll have to figure what ones to use;
                    although at 2.5 ft length I most likely can use them all. Now off to the "think tank".

                    • I like that scene Rick. It is filled with a lot of good looking detail in such a small section.

                      • I agree with you Louis. Rick I just might have to "borrow" that idea, thanks for posting it.

                        • Finished the fenced area on the side of the Garage with some various junk and weeds:

                          Placed some tires, a box of junk, trash can, gas can, old radiator, and some pieces of metal. Added weeds and some
                          unruly clumps of grass.

                          Here is another shot showing the junk against the Garage wall. Wanted some detail pieces but didn't want to
                          overdue the area. Still want to get a truck of some sort to go in this area which should fill it up more. Everything
                          was primed, painted then weathered with some rust for a unused exposed to weather look.

                          I have an old time gas pump to put together which will be in the front of the garage along with a few items
                          that I need to order yet. Also a couple of items for the other side along with a big tree that I'll be putting the
                          finishing touches on soon then planting.

                          While I'm waiting for the parts to almost finish the Garage area I will start on the foreground stuff to get an idea
                          of space and finalize exactly what is going to go there. Until next time.

                          • Larry, that area looks very good and a truck there would be perfect.
                            Message me your address.
                            I have a truck I'll send to you that will work.
