    Yes , that was what I saw and YES it is a great scene, the trees , the background , the structure are beautiful.


    Oh , and not too long ago someone here saw something wrong with the next photo that I never saw while building or photographing it , if they hadn't told me it would still be downside up.

    Wll, most of it is carved Dura Bond, but the pre-split zones are pours against forms made from aluminum foil with parallel indentations pressed in. You can see a form at left in the 1st photo and a pre-split wall at lower right in the 2nd. I'm hoping that dark washes will make the whole thing pop.

    Ok, finally, setup the test loop and practice 12 1/4” diameter circle loop. Tomorrow will be shay test. I tried a few times already but it was running like crap, even after cleaning wheels and track. Been sitting in it’s case for months.

    And no, the ruler was only on track for photo.

    LOL, it still took me a while to spot the item. Maybe add a set of stairs like its going to a loft? Question... Did you change it?

    BTW... I appreciate any & all feedback, and I don't take offense. The whole exchange has bee great fun for me and somewhat of a learning experience (open my eyes!!)

    Yes , I gently cut through the glue holding it together and without much trouble corrected it. I'm glad I use glue that stays rather soft .

    This covers more than just this weekend but here is what I worked on this weekend. It is a great kit with good details. Only thing I do not like is the roofing material that comes with the kit.







    Thanks

    Beautiful job Robert! I really like the nice touch with the rust-colored roof patches.

    Looks great, Robert! So is that the kit's roof or your own?

    Thanks, It is my own roof. The Corrugated metal roof is from Builders in scale and the tar paper is just painted and weathered construction paper.

    The stairs could be passed off as anti bear proofing. It's an amazing scene though.
