Really a great film & animation video. From the looks of the credits I'm guessing "Tom Grabenstein" had a lot to do with this video making.
I'm right there with Mike and Rick. Truly outstanding scenes, and automation going on in your modeling.

Putting the finishing touches on the mini logging layout.
I painted the river and stream bottoms and their shorelines using acrylic paints.




Using an interesting product Dave Frary liked called “ModPodge” I applied the river and stream surface using a fan brush.






Following are pictures of the completed streams and river.







I would appreciate your comments on this product / technique and if you have ever used it to create river and stream scenes.

Thanks for looking. Doc Tom

Hi Tom, that is a great product for that use. I mainly used envirotex lite, and in some areas used the Mod-Podge over that for the moving water effect. Envirotex lite once poured and dry comes out dead flat, however a great looking water effect, it needs the Mod-Podge to give it a motion look. Your job looks great!

Dave Frary has a how-to waterways DVD with many great techniques.

One of the fun parts of modeling in On30 is the "mini scenes" you can do with lots and lots of details.

Well the steam locomotives need a lot of cut wood to do their work......so a mini scene on the mini logging layout.









Thanks for looking. Doc Tom

Nicely done scene, Tom. Refueling requires a lot of manual labor.

Tom fantastic looking wood cutters scene. You've got the wood cutter team in realistic believable poses as well.

Tom,

The scene might be “mini” in size but it’s “maxi” in atmosphere. Superb.
