Some pics of a new water tank that will be located at the Valjean station. Constructed from an oatmeal container (cut down), coffee stir sticks, balsa, and card stock. The tank loops are made from elastic thread. Scott

Scott, your weathering around the base of the tank is most realistic. How did you achieve the look?

I recognize the 2-holer next to the water tank, I have one waiting for real estate on the layout! ;o)

The weathering is a little hard to explain since I just kind of "go for it". I started by staining (shoe dye/alcohol mix) the slats before they were on the tank. I then painted the red color with almost adry brush approach. Then I added more wash of shoe dye/alcohol mix along the bottom. I used rubbed in white chalk for the calcium deposits, a little white paint where it is heavier, and a little green chalk and brown chalk around the bottom. I use a stiff brush to blend where I could. I rarely wait for pint or stain to dry to long (literally just a few minutes-I am a bit impatient this way). I just kind of work at it until it looks right - more feel then technique. I do look at photos I find on line and of other modelers work and just try to replicate the affect. Hope that helps. Scott

For National Train show Pictures, check out the "General Forum" , then the "Crew Lounge Page", then the "National Train Show Sacramento" thread. The first pictures up are of our ON30 Group, the Northern California Narrow Gaugers. Scott

Since the NMRA convention activities are behind me, I can continue expanding my "world". The following pictures are of the first building I intend to develop on the wharf area opposite the wharf pier. I plan on building 4-5 more small structures to create a seedy crowded look. The last picture depicts the general location planned for Roth & Company. The ground area will probably represent weathered concrete, but still up in the air on that. The structure is built using card-stock photo texture siding over white foam-core, peel and stick shingles, Grantline windows/doors, and balsa. Scott
