    Thanks! Still a bit more work to do but overall, it's coming together.

    Hey, on a separate note, all those parts make it to you safely? They come out like you were hoping? Any feedback? I'm always interested in hearing how things are going.

    Thanks Gordon! They add a nice little element to the whole scene. Back in July/August I started a little one-man business out of office printing and selling some detail parts (often a lot of the stuff that I print and use on my own layout). I'd be happy to send the information over if you'd like.

    Your videos are great! I admit it - I am a YouTube junkie. I quit paying for any form of cable/satellite a few years ago, and rely on good folks like you for entertainment these days.

    One thought I have, regarding barnacles, is that it might be worth a test: paint an area with a slightly thinned paint, sprinkle some kind of granular ballast-like product into the wet paint, and let that dry. Then, come back later and scrub the granules off. Maybe it takes multiple coats, because what I am thinking of is building up a kind of volcano-rim shape of paint that leaves a dimple after the granule gets dislodged.

    It would be similar to the salt technique for pre-weathering, where one puts down a base color of rust, dampens the surface and sprinkles on salt, then paints the final color over that. When the salt comes off it reveals spots of rust. The difference is that in that case, you don't want paint buildup around the salt, and you use salt so that it is easily removed later. Maybe my proposed paint buildup would be too much, making it too hard to scrub the grains back off.

    Just thinking out loud here...

    There is a "Product and service announcements" section of the forum. The description says "Let us know about new 'N' scale items to market, and Service providers (Manufactures welcome)." It might be worth starting a thread over there.

    Michael, first and foremost thank you for the kind words and for giving the videos a watch. Secondly, I love this idea! I will definitely need to take some time to try this (or something similar) to see what sort of results can be obtained. Thanks for thinking out loud!

    Thanks Rob, I appreciate you taking the time to go through and give them a watch. I don't think all of them have made it into the thread but the general feel for it all still remains.
