Steven, great job on the flatcar. Tanks for the pictures

Dave, that climax looks real good. Nice job on the wood grain and staining.

Looks great, Dave. I love the dents and dings in the metal siding.

Stephen, I missed your flat car photos the other day. That's a very nice job of scratchbuilding on the flat car!

I apologize for straying off topic, but I must compliment Chris Comport (extra94) on his absolutely stunning backdrop (photo on page 20). Perhaps less is more in this case, but I swear just over that tree lined ridge is a whole valley full of wildlife and rivers, the scenery seems to go for miles. Nicely done Chris! Any more photo's of your layout? (perhaps in a different thread?)

Here are a few of mine. The bike shop was made from cut up DPM walls. The lower part of the assay building was part Yorke kit. The others in the scene were scratched. Everything in the locomotive scene was scratched and the wharf building has an IHM brick hotel almost hidden in the lower middle.

Here's an On3 caboose I built a while back. It's no longer with us since it derailed and fell into 'aisle gorge'

Doug,
They are all great examples of scratchbuilding, but the Miller building is quite impressive.

Cody,
That was a nice caboose. Too bad it met its demise.

Here is another one I could say I scratch built. It was inspired by similar buildings on Dave Frary's layout back in the early '70s.
Now Northeastern makes a kit of the same wharf structures.
Also note the not-quite-finished mine building above and behind. It's another scratch effort.
I had a lot of fun scratch building structures before I found all the old FSM kits on Ebay. <G>

Thank you Peter, Mike and all for the nice comments.
Doug...very impressive scratch building there.
I love the warf!
I want to do one for my layout, just need to figure out where lol.

Cody,
So sorry to hear about the caboose. A fine job you did on that.
