That scene is looking good. I know its going to look great once you work your magic on it. The lighting is awesome!

Today's project was adding lights to the Mercantile. Once again I'm using 3mm yellow LEDs for the interior lighting and flickering LEDs on some exterior lights. I've found through experience that a little flicker goes a long way. On this structure, there were a few "light leaks" around the roof to fix and glazing to add in the windows. I also added a new wooden porch and sign board, changing the name from "Burro Creek" to "Thunder Mesa Mercantile." I hope Verne doesn't mind. I'm thinking that new front porch needs a few props and details too.





I should note that the fancy porch lamp is original, Verne just never got around to wiring it up.

That porch lamp looks great! Looking good, Dave.

Can't wait to see it all come together.

I agree about the figure. I'm trying to get a reasonable resemblance of him for my layout. He will be driving a wagon load of Vanadium ore to the railhead. Maybe I could send him south with a load of ore for you.

My earlier comment was that Verne should be on the porch BSing with customers -- stupid auto correct on my phone!

I had a little time today and built this retaining wall behind the depot in Thunder Mesa town. It's a mix of Woodland Scenics castings and scratchbuilt cribbing.

Very inspiring, Dave. A perfect setting for your station. The scene is begging for a sleeping dog! Bob.

Thunder Mesa is Looking Good Dave. It looks Evolved rather than developed.

It's only make-believe

This weekend I'm working on the rockwork behind Thunder Mesa town. I really need to get this finished before I do any more work on the town's structures. The pink EPF foam has been carved and sculpted and next comes the scenic base coat of paint. Stay tuned. More to come.
