Photoshop is cheating but it sure looks good.
The fascia looks sharp too.

Another project I've been working on is this small control panel for the Thunder Mesa section of the layout. When everything is finished, each section will have a panel like this to control things like lights, sounds, and animated effects.

Very nice, Dave. Model is great, but I must say your last posted panel is really nice.

Great progress as usual Dave! That's cool how you used photoshop to get a 'sneak preview' of the finished scene. Very nice job with the control panel also.

Here's a look at how Verne's San Lorenzo is becoming the Old Spanish section of Thunder Mesa town. The layout of the buildings had to be tweaked somewhat to fit the available space, but their positions from left to right are the same. Mission San Lorenzo gains some added prominence by sitting about 4 scale feet higher than the Cantina, etc. On the yet-to-be-completed mesa behind the Mission will be a cluster of forced-perspective Indian pueblos.



I'm currently retrofitting Verne's structures with lights to match the rest of town and just finished wiring up the speakers and power for the Pricom Dream Player sound system. The sound loop remains the same, with the angry banditos still threatening the pig who decided to cool off in the fountain.

The details are looking real good despite the lack of any soil. The cactus and hanging red peppers are my favorite details.

Nice to see Verne's work being re-purposed and lighting added. Looking forward to the finished product.

The old Spanish section of town is looking good . Passengers on a train on the elevated track in the background will get a good view of the goings-on and visitors to the layout will get a great photo op with the train back there!

Let there be lights! Here's the first of San Lorenzo's structures to get LED lighting: The jail. I really like the warm glow from behind the bars. This is where the Anglo section of town transitions to the old adobes. Now I want to finish the Marshal's office too.
