Mountain of Horrors-New Layout

For discussion of the issues faced when building a model or layout - how to replicate wood, what glues to use, exactly how much weathering can a Gnat take, a good source of detailing accessories - you get the picture, I'm sure.

Mountain of Horrors-New Layout

Postby Larry Brown » Tue Sep 09, 2014 8:58 pm

This is a new layout featuring Frankenstein's Castle and many creatures. A two level layout with two critters. There is thunder/lightning sound chips and lights. I will be posting pictures to this layout. Due to the fact that I've been working on this layout picture process will be often.

The figures and building are produced by a company named Lemax.

So which of those LEMAX Zombies, Vampires, Bats, Hangmen, Mummies will be used for Nevadablues mining layout.

I can recommend the forgotten miner from Lemax:

At least it brings a chuckle from some onlookers, while the rest will bang their heads in dispair against the next wall.


Have Fun

:D

I needed some livestock for the new owner of the mine. He is a farmer and will want to continue to do some farming at his new home. He got two milk cows, a pig, some chickens and a couple of helpers. (Morning Milk set and Chow Time set)

Next will be some labor for the mine maybe.

Sorry for the 'derail'. 8)
