I can't wait to see the progress.


One of the best layouts I've seen!!

Wow...Thanks Guys...I better get back to work. I'm so pleased with the Bragdon rock system that I've been seriously re-thinking some of my "visions" for the unfinished scenery. Been studying a lot of my Malcolm Furlow archives  ::)  Things could get dramatic!


Thanks again for the interest and motivation...John

John,

The next time you are in my area give me a visit. I have something you may want.

Two walls in the package and better yet, you can have them for just the visit.

You can see the walls in the above photo.

I finished scenic king the base for the brewery built by Loren (FSMCollector) and let the glue dry overnight. This morning I plan to blend it into the adjacent scenery and ballast the track immediately in front of it...a little goop should do the trick - this stuff is perfect for me because it's controllable, versatile, and you can leave it for months and come back and it's ready to go. I'll probably go into my Scenic Express stash for some vines for the wall, particularly to mask the joints and generally age it up a bit.

John,
 Looking real good. I had almost forgotten about the Brewery. Layout is coming out fantastic...

Finished "planting" this beauty...next, I'll move forward to focus on locating Execution Rocks' Sailmaker. This amazing brewery was scratch built by Loren. The sailmaker was built for me by Vilius. I feel like I'm curating a museum as well as building a layout and I'm thankful for it.

Now that the Brewery is in place, I can move to the foreground to plant the Sailmaker. I've got a bit of coastline to model and then the building will sit upon a concrete base. Just stuck a few trees in place to help visualize the sight lines.

John,

The first photo shows that you have done a great job drawing the viewer into the scene with the sight line to the brewery between the ship and the sailmaker.  Looking forward to seeing this with the waterfront finished and a few trees added.  Your backdrop really adds depth in this area.  Very well done!

That's another really neat scene taking shape on your layout John!  Love it.

John very impressive!!


Even though I model in O-Scale I'm getting a lot of good information from your thread.  Keep up the great work.
