There are one or two stickys already Todd, but that sounds like a great idea.


Technically that is not Geoff Knotts website but rather a site with pics of his work.

You cannot mention his or Steve Pettits work without mention of the Red Stag

Guys, a great modeler in his own right Mario Rapinett has a website who covers a great number of his friends. Including my friend Karl Osolinski, who in my opinion does some of the best work in HO I have seen to date. Brian Nolan and Dave Revelia's work can also be seen there,  they are both great modelers  in some of the larger scales/gauges  nowadays but  started in HO. Pat

Just click on the art tab once you get there, you guys on Dail up will be here a quite some time as there are tons of pics there.

Wow!  That's the first time I've seen pictures of the Red Stag Railroad. Absolutely breathtaking.

     My favorite picture is number '05811' The detail of the man sitting there at the water fall. Speaking of which, how did he make his excellent water? I've not seen a water fall look this good and I seen many modeled. Everything about this picture is amazing, even the fine branches of the trees.

     Wow! something to strive for.

You have a good eye Loren.

The Stag has long been my favorite.

I read that he teased out some silicone or other product on clear acetate material, that was cut into strips and glued in place, after which poly fibers were attached to give the look of misted water around the falls.

He used modeling paste to do the other water areas, which when dry he painted with acrylic paints.

When that was dry he went over that with a gloss medium to give it the wet look.
