N scale along the z-axis, O scale along the x and y-axis... Although I think it might be too disproportionate. HO scale on z-axis would probably be better... [:-spin]



N-scale drives H0 bodies to stay NG..H0n30 ?

Marty, I made a 1:12 scale model of Helms deep for my son out of pink Styrofoam and a cement product, the kids played with it for years, out by the garage. A steam punk diorama would be fun.

It would take a lot of thinking but when one is done one can see it this way. It can perhaps also be used also for the dwarwes rolling stock. Although perhaps more rusty and with a lot more rivets.
Sooner or later in The LOTR universe there must be a industrial revolution. Did not Saruman invented explosives that was used at Helms deep (blackpowder?)?.

A friend of mine plays Warhammer and in that universe they have begun using steam. I suggested steam trains in Warhammer to my friend but he only snorted (He doesn't like model trains unlucky he[:-spin])

Now that would really stop traffic [:-bigeyes][:-bigeyes] wonder if it moves under it's own power. Think it is 13.5' tall??

I'm guessing that was something that showed up at Burning Man?

Beautiful!! What is the history behind this contraption?
Reminds me a little of the wagon in
the movie "The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus". A mobile mansion. I'll pass this on to my friend, thanks!

Here is a little bit of background for the Neverwashaul, I do think that it is self propelled at times, but has to be trailered to events. http://etheremporium.pbworks.com/w/page/10454244/Neverwas%20Haul

Well I think I'll stay with a coastal RR. Painted the rock first coats of drybrushing with unbleached titanium, napels yellow redish and a orangie rustcolor. Bit of ochre and burnt umber to..









Maybe I ditch in the first layer of grasses to, will give the modules a different look !

Martin, The scenery is looking great, I really like how the eye is drawn to the hidden areas, making the mind wonder what is around the bend. Steve

Right now, it is quite horrible, but we know you'll turn this into wonders in no time.

That's a very interesting golf course!

Meanwhile, nice to see the rocks emerge from the shadows ... coloring looks great! [:-thumbu]

Cheers,
