    Thanks for the clarification, but I think the comments still apply. An non-maintained area would likely have more color and height variation on the grass and more bare patches. Non-grass areas...

    What others said was my first impression. Too much consistent green grass and green overall. A little color variation, a little more bare patches of dirt and break up the area around the abandoned...

    Didn't notice it until you pointed it out, but you are right. May need a light grey wash or a dusting of a grey pigment. The filter had a lot of yellowish tint in it and likely coming through.

    Building and layout update. Finally finished the pesky roof on the RSL Harris building. Not my best build, but it will do. Needs a little more dusting and weathering, but almost good enough. ...

    When I scratch built my grain elevator, I ran into the same problems that the evergreen sheets weren't square. As a matter of practice I chose one edge as true and trimmed about 1/8" off of the...

    Frankly, I think the white caps are just right. A big body of water is pretty rough regardless of how the wind is blowing. It looks very well done. First rate job!

    My guess was 80 - 90'. The tank upfront looks to be about 30' tall and building appears to be about 2 1/2 tanks.

    Up in Westminster, CO today (north side of Denver) hanging out while my daughter's and friends were at the water park. Regardless of why I was up there, I did a quick run through Hobbytown to kill...

    Agree with the other posters, it seems to come down to trial and error. However, if you want a simple online calculator I have used this before.

    Great video and voice over. For those non-railroad folks in the crowd, these videos are great learning tools. Great use of the drone and being a fellow flyer, I appreciated the message at the end. ...

    Some initial switches down to see how it will come together. A little too much room in the yard area for the ops layout so I may shift it down 6" to give the run-around a little more room. Ideally...

    Thanks Steve. I usually paint the foam as well so the pink foam doesn't remind me of how much I haven't gotten done. However, I dropped in a grid and once I get the track down I am going to cover...

    Primary wiring for NCE Power Cab done. There are a lot of switches, so I opted to drop in a circuit breaker too. Probably overkill, but don't have a lot of faith in the Power Cab circuit breaker,...

    I don't think form board would cut it. If you want something very light yet durable. If you don't have a table saw, get your local big box store to rip a 1/4x4'x8' sanded pine into 3" or 4" strips...

    If saving $15 is that important to have un-matched track that requires a lot of work to make it work, then knock yourself out. Just seems like bad advice to me. When I see one of your modules...

    My guess is you will want to connect the track at the top middle to the top main. Keep in mind once you do, you will need to wire it for a reversing section. Easy to do but you need to plan for it...

    In addition to what Gordon threw out, some sculptamold or ground goop works well too. Locks in the Kato track very nicely.
