Nicely done Steve.  I have the kit in the closet, and you have inspired me to get it out for a build.  ~mike c

Howdy Tom,

Nice build for a tricky kit.  Can't wait to see the finished structure.

Have fun,
Mike C

Perhaps animation, e.g., water tank spouts, signals, people moving... ~mike c

I took a clinic from Dave Frary at one of the early (2007-2009) Craftsman Structure Shows.  During the clinic he stated that most water, regardless of color, looked deep blue from land. 

His techique was to use a darker blue around banks, and docs to represent shadow and depth.  The colors used were cerulean blue, medium green, white, and black.  He used gesso instead of enviro, and it looked terrific and was very easy to control. 

Check this:

Have fun,

The mine thread has been a lot of fun to watch.  Your craftsmanship speaks for itself.  Beautiful model. 

Thanks for sharing with us,
Mike Corley

I received the beautiful O scale Stone Factory and it arrived as promised.  Has anyone built the new boxcar kit yet?  Maybe we should start a new thread if so.  The title on this one may propagate misinformation now.  Mike C
