ANo10 only 2 thumbs up? Man you are hard to please!

O.K. I had this "Depots by John" cast resin kit I had been meaning to do something with but not having worked with resin before I kept putting it off. Really isn't much to it although I do wish the doors were seperate like the windows as it would save alot of masking.



Then I had to build a little triangle shaped platform for it.



With some scenery added, more details to come later



The space between the engine house and the depot is were the "town" will have to go [:-bigeyes][:-magnify][:-shake][:-sick]

Okay Tyson, I relent...[:-jumprefect][:-jumprefect][:-thumbu][:-thumbu][:-thumbu]
and a gold star.[:-star]

Seriously, I have been following yours and the other guys mini-layout thread on the AMR forum. You have done a fantastic job on the micro-layout. I'm repeating myself..."but I can't believe it's N scale". My hat's off to you guys. Thanks for sharing. (Now where is the Climax with the antlers??)

Thx for the kind words guys! Jim I did put the Climax on the layout. Remember me saying it was a rather large Climax, probably around 50 ton? First tunnel sheared the whistle right off the roof! [:-banghead][:-bigeyes2][:-crazy]

Tyson,
You might aske the driver of that stake-side truck to move it so that you have room for your town.

Seriously, I like what you have done, and look forward to seeing how you decided to represent the town.
