    Cool detail. Such a small thing can really show.

    Tell me about it.:p

    Seriously, I am very impressed (and for some reason, that just keeps increasing) by Candy's attention to detail. Did you notice the vending machines on the left? There are actual cans in there!

    And as many have said, Candy, it's a pleasure to finally see your lovely countenance.:cool:

    It's way better than my mug!:D

    The "Sunset" yellow was a blend of colors that the guy who I built it for came up with. He mixes it and paints all his SP structures with it. He gave me a bottle to paint the depots I built for him. The roof is a moss green.

    Grab shot - N scale Santa Fe Alco RSD-15 #800, just back from Randgust's wire handrail service:

    This is finally nearing the finishing stage, of a build that's been going on since December 2012:

    http://www.pbase.com/atsf_arizona/n_scale_rsd15

    That's a repainted, refinished Model Power RSD-15 shell, on a Atlas B40-8 mechanism that's been refitted
    Atlas C-628 trucks. The above Pbase album has more details.

    I may not be fast, but it's good to see a project getting near completion. :)

    John, it's obvious that you're not half-fast by looking at your conversion, nice job.

    Grampy, that's a lovely scene. The clarity of focus and resolution really makes it. Are you using a pin-hole aperture, special lens, or excellent image processing software?

    The late Southern Pacific has not only the railroad business but the trucks too.

    Nice! I like the cars. I see the colors on that '55 Chevy. I had a '56 in that same scheme. Memories....

    Same here. First thing that caught my eye - that Ford in the foreground. I love the lines of cars of that era. And unlike today, there's no mistaking one brand or model for another. They had character, like the trains of that time.:)

    Today they all look like sneakers. :mad:

    Speed bumps, roller skates. Unimaginative drones, clones. They put goofy wheels on them, to distract from a dire lack of design originality and loud noise makers inside to attract the kiddie market. Bleh. Sadly the design limitations are heavily dictated by mileage mandates, so that aerodynamic considerations are a must. :(

    Well, slowly but surely, I'm getting there. Started mountains this week. A week from Thursday the HVAC contractor will be here to put in the heat-pump/AC unit. After that, its doors and trim. I do NOT like the "dragging" brush I did below the mountains. I am going to redo that with a light green and then red0 brush effect. I'm determined to get the room finished before the bench/trackwork starts. If I start building bench, I won't finish the room.

    As Tom Petty sang... "The Waiting is the Hardest Part".
