A few quick shots of my progress....its going slow but steady.Advise needed - am I on the right track by changing the railing color. There seems to be so much dark wood that a color of Desert Sand with weathering powders seems to work. Am I on the right track. Thanks...Rich

Richard,

I think that the lighter railing color give a good contrast, and adds visual interest.


Here are the links to the two previous threads:

What an incredible and imposing structure, Richard...should be the centrepiece of the layout! ...and in O-Scale to boot! Amazing!

Rich,

thanks for the update.

Excellent work on those stairways, landings and handrails. Everything is nice and crisp, and cleanly done.

Richard, I'd love to see your new pictures, but they won't show. I think the problem is that you are using parentheses in the name.
