Thanks, Mike. Yep, that's pretty much the technique I use, except I cover the riverbed with plaster cloth before painting and feathering. I also dab gloss medium on top of the smooth surface for a ripple effect. So I guess I'll stick with the tried and true when the time comes.

Boy, guys, another great bunch of photos!

Dan, do you think that the LP will be mad if I comment on that great set of tools in the first photo, and the neat wood shavings in the second?

Mike C., the rust and stone work in that building always jump out at me -- and the worker, of course.

Tom, there might be no police presence on my layout -- unless the LP get out of control.

George, I've had trailer kits in my hands several times, with thoughts of including one on the layout. So far, I have always put it back down.

Mike, those are some great scenes that are enhanced by the presence of LP!

Bob, that is another interesting structure with lots of "character".

Bruce, That's because you don't live in Virginia.

There are a lot of great pictures being posted. I'm enjoying this month's subject. I'm anxiously waiting for pictures of Steve's beach scene.

Bruce great idea for a gallery this mouth. Everyone has posted some great scenes with their LP. After looking around on my hard drive here are a few from my layout.



The local beat cop keeps a watchful eye on the goings on at Corky's Pool Hall.



Some wheeling and dealing going on behind the Texaco station.



The back yard of Sanford and Son.



A friendly game of checkers in front of Stuff'y Tavern.

we've never met but I've admired your work for years; Steve and Ken,
your work always is a pleasure to look at.
Great inspiration! Thanks.

In other threads, we've talked about modifying LP to change their poses, etc. If you have any pics of figures that have undergone "plastic surgery", please post a pic in the Gallery this month.

Bruce- Your wish is my command!
Actually I happened to be working on this figure at the moment:


This young mother is made of two unpainted Preiser figures. I liked the way the woman was holding the baby, the nicely sculpted face, and the elegant pose of the arm. The problem was that the mother figure was wearing slacks, and since I model 1942, that was a no-no.

Therefore I found another figure who was wearing a skirt and did some surgery, cutting them in the same general waist area and cemented them together. I used green Squadron Putty to fill gaps and then began to shape the figure with an Exacto knife.

This is about as far as I've gotten so far. The plastic these figures are molded in is pretty easy to shave or carve so I'm slowly thinning down the waist and skirt until they look natural. You'll note that I added some putty to raise the hair and to extend the hand a bit. These will be carved with the Exacto later.
