Karl,

I was wondering whether it would be possible to see a photo or photos of the back side of the building with the tatoo sign in front (and if possible, the back of its neighboring building). I'm requesting this for an entirely selfish reason--I'm pretty much copying (I wish--I should say trying to copy) your building, and I cannot see the back detail very well from the existing pictures.

I would not normally make such a request but your work is brilliant; I'm sure everyone would like to see more of whatever you do.

Merry Christmas season to you and your family and to all in this forum.

Bob

Hi Bob,

Your timing is right on! I'm setting up to take photos of my progress on the tenements tomorrow.

I've been able to work on the project pretty steady in the last couple of weeks and have nearly finished the five scratch-built buildings.

I'll be sure to take some photos of the backsides of the two structures for you.

Happy Holidays!!

Hi Bob,

The photo stage was all set up and the two buildings were just sitting there so I just shot these. Hope they help...

Well worth the wait I hope there's some more.

Your coloring is just outstanding everything just blends together like in real life.

So good to have you back.

Hello folks,

Well, I've nearly finished the five scratch built structures for my project but decided I needed something else to fill in some space. I have a few Downtown Deco kits that survived the flood so I grabbed the Adams Avenue #1 kit and built it. It's really a very nice model and I think it should fit right into the run-down urban look I'm after. It took about a week to build and paint it...here are some photos of my version of the kit...














I've also been working on shooting the photos for my locomotive portrait catalog and this particular engine, a big, husky Great Northern Pacific H-7 really caught my eye... tall drivers, six wheel Vanderbilt tender and boiler detail and piping galore.

According to the Glaab book this was the only brass H-7 ever made. Imported by Westside Models, and built by Samhongsa (Korea)in 1977.

For being 40 years old I think it still holds its age well. The backhead detail is not as nice as later Samhongsa models but it does a nice job of covering the can motor in front of it. This photo was taken with a 24mm tilt-shift lens with 3 degrees of tilt.








I am having a hard time identifying one engine. There is no box for this model and it's not pictured in the Glaab book. It's a PFM 2-truck Shay made by United (Japan). The ditcher is an Overland model but if someone might recognize the Shay it would help me out. Thanks.






Again, I want to thank all the nice folks who have given me such a warm welcome back. Thank you!

Happy Holidays to all,

Karl O.

Just ran out of words for the Deco building. Coloring and weathering will fit in with the rest of the diorama.

There some really nice engines and ditcher. And the photo shoot is pretty awesome to.

Happy Holidays to you and your family Karl.
