i think it is a fun project.after looking at the mock up i have decided that it does not go far enough it think it could be more 3 d.the road and shop needed to be on top of a small ridge or hill that would happen on the long fence side ,then the fence could be falling over into the slope which could have rubbish in its banks that have been thrown over the fence.also on the left hand side of the alley there could be a corner of a tall building

Neat scene...feels very Australia to me for some reason....and the whole time I am looking at this I can't help thinking this is Mario trundling around on his new adventure.

hi guys
yes i really like australian themes,i have spent a lot of time in far north queensland-tropical australia.it is about 2500 km north of sydney[3000 miles],my contact goes back  to when very young   living next to a gas works in a swamp-full of crocs and snakes.they used to deliver coal on railway line that was built on a earth embakement out of the swamp.during the secound world war they dumped parts of a oil refinery into the swamp-great place to grow up.the queensland style is slowly changing a shame as the style reflected the enviorment very well.here is a shot of a small cane town -halifax about 10 years ago.

.

the 4 x is not a style of porn but a lable of a famous beer ,all the building have wide verandahs,all the doors open you sleep outside with mosketo nets.notice the great street festive lighting,the trees are mango.the public bar is very casual bare feet with a huge open ice chest behind the bar to keep the beer ice cold.as i have said all this

Kim this is a great project and very well built.

Having grown up in Canberra and Melbourne, I have a less rosy view of Queensland based around the amount of retirees and the regime of Joh Bjelke-Peterson and Russ Hinze....but then again I was young and idealistic!

You certainly have been more productive than I. Scarlett gave me the flu for Christmas and neither of us has fully recovered yet. Apparently it's really making the rounds. You get a really bad cold and cough and, in my case, fever. Then it just refuses to leave. -- Russ

hey russ
that variety of the flue was all over australia last winter.it really knocks your lungs around.
flue shots dont seem to help.  some type of super bug .
but the good thing is that it goes -eventually

The ice cart is pretty nice, very interesting design. The texture looks a bit rough, though. Not sure if that's intentional.
