We would all like to see what you are working on and its progression.

Here is what I have going. I put together several Micro-Trains structures and intend to use them as ATSF yard buildings so I wanted to paint all of them at the same time. I will work on getting the done this weekend maybe.

Mike-

One thing about N scale is that it does not force one to build all smaller structures.

In O scale I have a problem right now trying to come up with believable factory buildings without one-dimensional "flats" along the wall.

If I could see better----

Herb , to make background building believable try to angle them and step them away from the wall with 1/4" black foam core board. It is about the only way I know of.

I have had a little time this weekend to work on a couple projects. One is a JL innovations water tank to be used at the T. Leary Chemical Plant and the other is a new Blair Line Drive-in flat that will go behind the plant and yard area.

That looks GREAT Ronnie!
First of all I would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and happy New Year. I have had little time to work on the layout and plan on doing an updated video number 23 maybe today. This is what I have been working on inside the workbench this week. Just a few miscellaneous projects I've had laying around and intend on putting on the layout. The tourist trap I've had constructed for quite some time and it was on the old layout and needed a little bit of rehab. The rest of the structures are built for specific locations. The loading ramp will go in the ghost town as well as the adobe house and garage. The green stucco building will go at the T. Leary chemical factory. The tourist trap will go along the highway on the way into the ghost town.



Mike
