About here is where I get that deer in the headlight look as the deadline comes bearing down on us! My guys are getting worn out what with trying to build the engine shed while mining (to get the $$$ to by the materials) at the same time. [:-indifferent] But as you can see they are pressing on. The reason for the different colored boards on the engine house is they are all salvaged from other projects, I'm hoping weathering will bring them more in line with each other. Kinda stark right now though [:-paperbag] .

Here goes I had sun today but forgot to take pictures at noon[:-banghead][:-banghead].

It is HON30 13.5" long 8.75" wide 4" high.
Track is Arnold N scale. Loco is a Kato Pocket line with an almost finished upper deck. It does make it around the curves under it's own power. I started this months ago and left it alone until a couple of weeks ago. I hope it inspires someone with no space that they can build something.

Howdy Folks,

I managed a little time today to get some work done on the micro! I know I'm past the deadline, but I think I can finish this, so I'm gonna try.

Here's a quick shot:


Today I painted the shed, glued down a bunch of grass (pot topper material) and installed the dead tree. I'll have a bit more time over the weekend to work on it so I'll file a proper report later. Not too much more to go..!

Cody, it's simply a question of trimming the picture so that no exterior element disturb the model. The example below shows how realistic your work is.

Thanks Fredric,
You're right, that dose look allot better. I've got a white bit of heavy cardboard that I intend to use as a fold up backdrop. Here's a quick mock up:
