  a 3D documentation.  Very wel done.

  comparing Chuck's and Anders'  work with each other is like comparing apples and pears.
  Each is so different, have their own appeal and can easily stand side by side in what is possible in various scales. 
  The ultimate will be both models standing side by side to absorb the differences.

Anders, we won't let you get away that easy. Can you explain the construction / wiring of the lamp posts a little?
They turned out really nice. Just like everything else.  Roll Eyes

Anders,

can really only agree with all the comments .... the night shots are fantastic, however agree with the comments re maybe shooting some more at "eye level" think that would add even more realism to some great modelling

Anders,

itīs wonderful, thatīs a great job Smiley  When I see your fantastic pictures, ...




...I can not believe that it is only 1:87!

Admit it, you use the same trick like I have used recently here Grin: for every purpose a different size of the coin:

Beautiful! An amazing level of realism and detail for HO scale.

What kind of LEDs were used? What voltage do they run on?

Thanks very much guys for all the kind input - much appreciated. I think the advise on the camera angle came out real nice so here we go again with some new pictures - no night pictures yet.

Christian, I have some close up pictures of the lamp posts that I could e-mail you and at the same time describe how they were wired.

Ray, the LEDīs are from this manufacturer http://ngineering.com/index.htm and operate on 9 V. Bill Sartore was kind enough to solder the wires to the LEDīs. I believe this can be a real nightmare.

Frithjof, those Euro cents look great...... Shocked
