Ok, I'm following through on my promise a little quicker this time...

Here are a couple of "external" shots of one of my cabeese. This is detailed inside, but none of my photos turned out. I have to try and figure out how to get a better interior shot - I will post them when I get them










Since I am NOT a photographer (as one can tell!), I am not sure why things always turn out so "white." For instance, along the bottom edge of the crummy it is weathered rather well, but in the photos it shows up as just a "white" area. Any ideas as to why? How can I correct this in my photos?

I will post some photos of the interior when (if I do) take a good photo of it.

Very nice build on the logging caboose. The marker lights are a nice touch and just add the look.

Mike,
Thanks for the photos. They are just the motivation I need to get moving on the one I bought my father for Christmas.

Well, I have taken quite a few photos of the interior, but I can't seem to get a real clear photo of the detail. These are the best I had, sorry!

The worker is taking a break from looking at some maps to have a moment with his dog. I put the dog in to cover the screw from the trucks. It just seemed easier than cutting off the screw .

Hey Mike
Neat 'boose very nicely detailed at first I thought it was O scale!
I really like the dog.

Anywho....a suggestion on the picture thing.
Go outside to take pics, natural light is the best bulbs just dont cut it.
I eind a bright, but cloudy day is best - nice light, no harsh shaddows.
Use a lighter (or white) background.
Hope this helps

I really like that! It's on my "To Do" list.

As to the photo. I have the same problem with my camera. Here is how I got around it. Back up a bit. You will notice that the background is in focus on some of the pix. If you back up a bit and use as high a resolution as possible, then they should be in focus and you can crop them once they are loaded on yer computer. Also, try setting the camera up on a tripod, remove the model and place something else there that is at the height y7ou want the focal point to be and focus on that, then remove the stand in and replace the model and "click".

I hope this helps.

Is that a map pinned up on the caboose wall in front of the desk? Very creative interior!

Do ya mean that Rover has a spike up his butt -- or is that Spike who has a screw tail -- or ...

Nice job of interior decoration.

Mike,
Combine Marty's and Christopher's recommendations, and I think that you will see a difference.

Christopher: thanks for the suggestions, I will try that.

Russ: yes, that is a map on the wall. I took an old road map I had of Northern Canada that had a lot of lakes on it. I cut out several small sections, then with a red tip "Sharpie" I drew in train lines. I sanded the paper as thin as possible and mounted on the wall with rubber cement.

Thanks for the input fellas.
