With Krisís (KP) permission I am transferring to a new thread to finish the details on the Sierra West O Scale Wood Cutters Shack and its integration into the partially completed diorama. I was a pleasure to work with Kris building these shacks and I look forward to doing so again.

The first thing we both noticed was the great number of detail castings - almost overwhelming. Brett has taken the casting business to a new high - you design what goes on the shelves and desktops - there are tons of wrenches, c-clamps, hammers, and assorted gears and cogs, tanks. And even a wheelbarrow and your custom build skid - this all adds up to lots of detail work. Kevin has a great thread started working through many of these castings and I plan on applying his techniques along with some of mine to make some cool details.

The first casting I am working on is the tank thingie - here it is partially done - there is no sheen in real light.

E it looks great. IMO it has enough foliage but I like semi-arid modeling, the better to see all your fantastic details and their decorating.
Collin Loo Posted - 06/09/2014 : 12:58:27 PM
Looks great! Please post more pictures when you are done with the foliage. Thanks.

Beautiful Elliott

Looks great ET. Thanks for the update. Hope your doing well.
Rick Posted - 06/07/2014 : 10:09:14 AM
Nice work Elliott
ETinBH Posted - 06/07/2014 : 09:28:03 AM
Thanks for the responses - appreciated - quick up-date - most of the castings are placed - just a little more foliage and we will be done!!!

Frederic Testard Posted - 05/10/2014 : 04:36:24 AM
Waow. What a set of castings!
Very nice scenes in these recent pics, Elliott. I love the way you always give life to your models.
Collin Loo Posted - 05/09/2014 : 3:16:30 PM
Really nice paint job on the castings. I like how every item has a different weathering effect and not uniform.
TRAINS1941 Posted - 05/09/2014 : 1:57:54 PM
ET great job on the castings and the LP. Looking forward to seeing these all in place.
ETinBH Posted - 05/09/2014 : 12:57:25 PM
Thanks Bryan, Collin, and those who just came by to look. Update - all the figures and casting details are finished and ready to start the scenicing - starting to feel like I will get through this

Collin Loo Posted - 05/05/2014 : 01:16:34 AM
Hi Elliott,

Love all the details you have added to the scene. They are well placed and looked very realistic. Excellent work!
brownbr Posted - 05/04/2014 : 5:56:29 PM
That did go together nicely. A couple of small add-on details that I noticed are the track spike hooks on the walls and the nbw's on the wire spools. Subtle and effective.
ETinBH Posted - 05/04/2014 : 5:11:48 PM
Thanks a lot - the trees are from Canyon Creek Scenics - and the newest addition is a little log buggy flat car by GC Design Group. Last shot is details surrounding the cable storage area.
