Oh my! :shock:

Meanwhile, the new building group looks great ... it's been a wonderful project from the very first concept sketches ... enjoy dropping in to follow along ...

Will check back in 6-12 months to see how the paving is going! :lol:

For Dallas, I'll start another thread elsewhere for Yallah so that I don't hijack this one any more than I have already. Thanks! Don't want to hijack either ... the critter is great ... but you've managed to capture the "feel" of a railroad going through the woods in a nice way that intri...

I'm often a very slow modeler myself and occasionally find that there's a real benefit to allowing ideas to "stew" for a while ... the new stonework and surroundings look wonderful! Beautiful textures ... thoroughly enjoying this build ... no matter how long it takes. :D

Real nice pair of critters you've got there! Each with its own character ... and the "fleet" look at the same time. Lots of great touches in the detailing and weathering too ... look forward to seeing your rolling stock, etc.

Well the solution doesn't seem to be backwards at all ... and clearly you're on the way to moving forward ... so, one way or another, this should all work out! :shock: Looks like a neat solution and cool little hot-rod critter ...

...another direction for this un-thought-out, build-as-you-go project: I'm can't stop thinking this in-line 4-cylinder motor is going to look too high, no matter how I disguise it. My new thought is to build a flathead V8 onto the styrene "dome". That would cut down on the height consider...

Hey Bill --

Sorry to hear about the miserable virus, but glad you're feeling better ... and that "thinking" time really paid off! The new addition is outstanding ... puts a lot of action right up front ... and you can swap out vehicles, etc. Very nice bit of modelling.
