Since all of the flat ground for my layout is built out, I am now concentrating more on the sloped areas, specifically the foothills (which means lots of oak trees and grasses). Bob's South River Martin Machine kit was a natural fit. Jim Lucas and I teamed up to create this Western rendition.

Very nicely done. The trees look very natural. The rest of the model look good also.

You might want to check out the post on resizing photos. Just a suggestion.

Very nicely done. Your diorama looks terrific and I am eager to see it placed on the railroad.

Gregg,

Are you holding back on me? This is fantastic. Is this going on the layout?

Ha! Got my wife, Mary Beth, good on this one. I showed the first photo to her and said this looked like a fun place to spend a few days this summer. She agreed and asked me how I found the place...When I scrolled down and she saw the diorama base she explained " Oh Man, I thought that was the real thing".
Well done Gregg.

Regards, Richard

Thanks Larry. One of the advantages of modeling the west is the variety of vegetation you get to model, from the sea (redwoods), through the foothills (oaks and grasses) to the mountains (pines). I enjoy doing all, but have a fondness for these foothill areas spotted with oaks.

I took your suggestion and resized the photos. I'm still a learner here (smile).

Peter,

Thanks. Yes, this one is going to look good on the railroad. Once in place, I will finish off the scenery, adding a few alders near the river.

Yes!! One cannot have enough red boxes. Bob did a wonderful job designing the Martin Machine kit, as he does on all. If you do not have this one, I recommend it. You can modifiy the setting to make it fit just about anywhere.

Scott,

Thanks for your kind words. Yes, Martin's home is on the river bank on the opposite side of the layout from the kit-bashed Whitney & Bent you built for my harbor. The layout is a U with foothills on one side, with the rail yard in the middle, and the harbor and mountains on the other side.
