I, too, am really glad to see this. So much so, I purchased a back issue of Finescale Railroader (Dec 2005) in order to read Russ' article on modeling with cardstock, and I have been thinking of how to utilize the advantages of cardstock in an outdoor, large scale setting. I know Ray has used vinyl on the interiors of some of his buildings and I have been contemplating using a Cricut die cutter to do the same.

Nice to see you contributing again (other than the eloquent wordsmithing...)

very helpful and at the same time my limited imagination cannot see what you as the creator has in mind. following along with keen interest for as you alluded, more tricks to come!

good morning thank you all for your interest here is an overview from the basic board to all the bits so far.the base is 135 mm high or 5and one half inches high.the vacant bit of real estate on the right is where Bev's hats are going this area will not be as easy as the left side.i have used this contrast trick before I like it-dirty oil barrels to nice clean hats.the window behind the porch adds another dimension with the view through into the back also the striping weathering is an interior design trick to add more vertical movement, love these tricks more to come.the whole display is a custom kit that is based on 3 permanent walls-the 2 side walls and the centre divider.these walls are more protectors for travel and take the weight of the top of the box -the back scene .
cheers kim.

The windows are laser cut Strathmore from my CAD drawings. Didn't I write that earlier?

Helmut, I will take more photos soon. For now, here is a drawing. Please note: The loading dock will extend the full width of the building to help people avoid falling to their death. It might also preserve the occasional box of freight. -- Russ

I second the motion for an overall photo. -- Russ

I was concerned over the move, but you certainly made it more. the recess of the porch gives depth and the towering tank emphasizes.

this layout is reminding me of the star trek clear, 3 tier, chessboard. movement is possible in the X, Y, & Z axises (I had to look it up!)

would it be too bold, or too soon, to request an over-all photo to gain visual perspective? thanks.

Hi Russ, It requires more to see and experience.
