I'm not sure which pictures, and I'm not sure what you're asking about the angle?

Thanx Guys. The clouds were done using non-oil pastel chalks. I lightly drew the overall shape and amount of underside (to give it depth) in white and grey; then I filled in the various features(puffs) if you will; blended (smeared) them together adding other colors until Mark said it looked good; or stop dude!! come and check it out before you mess it up. Then I was impressed enough with his sincerity to put down the chalk and move on. He was dead on!! Thanx again for asking. KYLE

Here is a shot from Nov.21 last year, and you can see clouds lightly drawn in in white chalk. Also the crude mountains done in different shades in acrylics with chalk features drawn in for depth, size, and distance reference. Maybe you can tell that I didn't use any of the cloud features except the ones on the lower left, right above the river and horizon. The second picture is from Apr.4 of this year; kind of a before and after.

Hope that gives you the info you were seeking. I'll see if I can find some other shots (closer) of the clouds in various stages of development and post them if you would like to see them and think they might be helpful. Also, that's the day the "DEATH STAR" appeared in the sky. It's been lurking there ever since.

I installed the brown paper sack material in Devils' Gulch. This will be the support under the plaster cloth. I'm going to cut the cloth into small 10" long or so pieces and glue them in place after 'forming them' to the contours of the gulch. Then I'll mist them with water to activate the plaster. While they're wet I'll add a layer of paper towels, then another layer of plaster cloth, form it, mist it, and let dry. This way I don't have to mess with removing or wrapping the bridge or trestles. 'll probably start this weekend, as Mark wanted to "play" with the stuff also.

Thanx, the wooden trestle in front is 6'4" long. I'm pretty sure that's 304 scale feet. Glad you like it. All comments welcome.

Does anyone know anything about adding a Walschaerts Valve Gear to a BLI C-16 ? Is one even available as a cosmetic detail???

Kyle, Using Precision Scale Casting the links should be easy enough. I would think the changing the Cylinders would be the hardest part as by the time Walshaerts came around piston values with the Super Heated piping were in use. You might be able to modify a cylinder casting for a K-27.

Silly me . I feel so dumb; after I posted last night I looked at some pictures of the real mccoy and saw that the BLI looks just like the real deal. I thought that since BLI didn't put a lot of detail on the model (by comparison) to Bachmanns' 2-8-0, or 4-6-0, that they figured they'd keep the price down by minimal amounts of some of the details like some of the HO models by CONCOR etc.

But then, I looked at some adds from 2010 and the C-16 sold for about $269.00; that's pretty low pricing by todays' standards or back then for that matter. Some of the Bachmann stuff was well over $300.00 without sound. Also has anyone noticed how 'stiff' the C-16 seems to be when running... there's no 'give' in the running gear at all. It sorta bangs along the rails like a bulldozer; no type of 'flex' as it bashes over turnouts. Don't get me wrong, I like the locomotive a great deal, and the volume adjustment design among other features is quite nice, but it "travails the rails" like a brick.

Thank you for the additional photos. You have a lot of picturesque scenes.

By the way, not a criticism, but if you wanted you could post photos two or three times larger (in KB) and wed see more details and they would be within the size guidelines.
