Snapshots
Rare open country.


A foot or so of uncrowded open territory...
The truck & hopper are Athearn.
The boxcar is Kadee.
The orange tree is an out-of-place anomaly... gotta change it.

BTW, beautiful fall foliage at ground level looks very bland from a helicopter at altitude.
You can take that for what it's worth.

BTW, the large "oversize" steel drums are prototype...
They come in larger than 55 gallon, e.g., 70, 85, etc, all the way up to 110 gallon.
These are ShapeWays. I also get them by Herpa.

Background test
Things that can make or break a scene.


I've been setting up shots to test a new Photo-Mylar background, and I'm very pleased with the results so far.
Jerry's static grasswork is always superb, and I sometimes tend to take it for granted. But the right background can exude ambiance, and literally bring a scene to life.

Contract job
I generally run 'em before I weather 'em.


A really nice Athearn GP39-2... superb detail.
It's in for soot, bottom weathering and a 'spot-rust' treatment.

Who makes that centerbeam car? I've been looking for one with that design and no one seems to be making them right now.

Your layout must be giant, would love to see how it all looks together.

That one's from ExactRail (IIRC)...
Others are available by Walthers, Atlas, and McKean (kit).
