I wanted to test my hand laid track skills, and get a feel for 1/35. I started with one switch. It came out OK, so I built 4 more. Tried my hand at carving foam. Trying different dirt and such. The Alamo was my daughters 4th grade school project. It is a right of passage in Texas schools to build the Alamo. Somehow it looks about right in 1/35. Not sure what my rail roads purpose is yet. Maybe a tequila farm. Enough talk, here is some pictures.
Poncho is having a yard sell.
This is also a test for posting pics. Sorry about the quality. I will try to take some better ones.

Cool stuff, I kinda like 1:35 scale anyway. The Alamo looks fine for this scene, the Daughters of the Republic of Texas might have a cow but I think it's neat anyway! Looks to me like its' 35n2? Send more pix, you can make them larger, the Gallery here can resize them for the thread.

Thank you sir. Yes on the 1/35n2. Your Mongollon lit a fire under my model rail hobby. The ties might be small but I'm poor and used bottle rocket sticks. The rail is from some Atlas flex track my neighbor gave me. I will try your to post some better pictures using your advise.
Thanks Bob as I take inspiration and ideas from your gn15. Everything is in one stage of completion or another. I tend to get tired on working one thing and change to something else. I'm thinking I might finally paint the critter. I joined Freerails awhile ago for the r/c topics. I was running a Air Hogs board but found a good deal on a Deltang on FleaBay. Now I use the Deltag with a cell phone battery. I love r/c and will never go back.
