    Agree. Really liked his idea of pushing in flat the dead brown grass first. I think that will work well in N scale.

    Tough to tell on the pic due to a cloudy day other than the sat view. But looks white to me as well. Maybe white with a couple drops of light gray to knock it down a notch.

    Get rid of the extended cab on the red truck and you have the makings of the DeSoto and Gauge firetruck from Emergency 51! Loved that show.

    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.

    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.
