Thanks Mark and good to see you again. I was only thinking last night, I will have to start going through your hints as my routed track is a couple of weeks from running.

 

I have started to mentally plan scenery.

Well done! A different twist on track side scenery. Used to see track side cows at Bathurst! Something seems a little amiss. Oh yeh' CR#P, Cow cr#p, Its like peas and carrots!! Cows and Cr#p!! :) I've stepped in me fair share! Could see them being loaded up into a 1/32 scale NewRay PeterBuilt cattle truck?!

Way Cool, Very inventive.........ya'll got some World Class folks that are extremely creative in here.

I am truly impressed with your creativity Belles51.(Mark)............even if your from Arizona & not OZ :love:

 

Thats definitly what we in the Model RR world would call EXTREME - KIT Bashing :unsure:

 

The only additions I would consider would be Weathering this piece (But thats because I weather EVERYTHING.......except maybe some cars)

I also desheen scenery & structure elements with Testors Dullcote (see a collection of scenery posts in the track scenery forum. Theres a bit on improving plastic structures for realism that covers the basics B) )
