OK, Here are some photos of where I am at with my layout. At this point most of the layout is pink styrofoam with track pinned to it. Only one small section is complete. I dont have scaning so I don't know how to add a trackplan. Photos in next post

Thank you all. I do get a lot of inspiration from this group.

Larry, I'm not surprised you are interested in the truck. Lots of them were used during WWI. 4 wheel drive, 4 wheel steering, and 4 wheel brakes. I was lucky to find an original McKenzie Iron and Steel kit at a show about 10 years ago.
I think Wiseman is now producing them.

Inspiration plus. Well done.

What a beautiful layout.

Very inspirational. Can you tell me more about the truck?

Very well done, as usual! I enjoy the minute attention to detail.

Such a beautiful layout.
Thanks for sharing with us.

I have been enjoying my stay at home time by playing with the layout. If I didn't have it I would be going crazy. I started working on the abandoned ore dock with the tree in the roof again. It will be a background model so not a lot of extra detail.

Thanks for looking.

Thanks. To answer Rick, the mast is 9 inches tall and the boom is 12. I cut 3 inches off the mast because it just looked to tall.

Excellent addition to the RR Roland.
Rick Posted - 01/31/2020 : 06:35:04 AM
In 1:1, how tall is it?
robert goslin Posted - 01/30/2020 : 8:51:38 PM
Roland, it sure has come up a beauty. Nice extra detail, without being overdone.
In O scale that boom must be fairly tall.

Thanks Rob. I'm quite happy how they fill in around the pine trees.

I finished the crane last night. A few photos.

The picture of the Model A in the background is a car I got in 1989 and drove as a hobby until I sold it in 2008. Great little car but kind of slow.

Roland, nice trees. I have Hydrangeas in our garden, but I don't know if they're the same sort.
So will see.

Thank you all once again. Almost finished with the details. Maybe a picture tomorrow.
