I have lots of Super Trees from my Ho layout but I think I will have to make some bigger ones and use the HO ones for fillers, I will have to see how it looks.

I tried spraying an inkjet print with Krylon clear finish - I was worried that white ares were shifting red, but that went away when it dried.

Getting closer, the walk way is done. I think I have it run down looking enough. Next will be to get the dump truck ramp done and only enough scenery to fill the photo, after that I will slow down and work at a normal pace.

I like the warped handrail boards, nice touch! But if you run a loco over this in particular, seems to me you'd want fire barrels on the trestlework.

It does, but I am following a prototype and it didn't have any

I got the first photo for the new Kalmbach narrow gauge book done. I won't show the photo I submitted, I don't think it is fair to show a photo I sold, so here are a few different angles of the finally finished dump shed.

What I did was , finish the walkways and handrails, finish the dump truck ramp, built the coal chute to the sizing plant with footings, and finished the interior of the dump shed. Inside the dump shed I had to add the sloped boards along the dump pit to funnel the coal into the bin, then I hung the coal shovels that the dump trucks use that can be seen in photos.

Lucky for me not much scenery was in the camera view finder. I will have to do more scenery work for the MRP article but I have a couple weeks before those photos are due.

These photos are taken with my IPhone, the photos I sell are taken with DSL camera.

iPhone makes a great 'light macro camera' for doing model and work-in-progress photos...

I have to say that the well used look you are achieving is incredible. Little touches like the wobbly hand rails add so much character to your models.

tested out a small area with the Noch Grassmaster, there were to instructions in the box so I just gave it a shot. I used some 6mm Silflor late summer tone grass. It first it did not look to good, but after it dried and I vacuumed up the loose stuff it looked better.

Wow! Really like the color of the late summer type. Did you mix with other colors? It looks so natural! The muted colors tie in really well.
