Death Valley dio....

Here is what I have been doing lately.
I have been sick as a dog since returning from Oregon.
Then last Thursday i broke my little piggy toe, and crunched the bigger brothers.
Larger and more images can be found at my photobucket page:



Like this; Marc?

Thanks Marc, I shoulda known that....



Can't seem to find/see the photos of your broken & crunched toes....only photos of some model.  ??? :-\

Seriously...sorry to hear you are still under the weather...and now physical injury on top of it! I can't believe that cold is hanging on like that  :o.......several people have said they picked up something at Portland.

Glad to see you posting the dio and some of the plymouth images. What do you still have left to do on these? (Better hurry, that FSRR cover is approaching rapidly ;) ;D )

BTW....I never knew death valley to be so green and lush!

Get better and get back to the modeling!


EDIT: Marty...instead of uploading from your desktop, just "hotlink" the images from the Photo site....that way they show full size, and there is no size limit.

Err....almost you need to take that link/url and while in the post text window format here, click on the second button from the left in the bottom row (the one that looks like a small photo/picture)....and this will give you this [ img ] then a flashing insertion point, folowed by another [ /img ]....and it is in between these (at the flashing insertion point), that you paste your link/url, so that it will look like/appear like this when done (make sure that you have no spaces between the bracket and your url at the beginning or the end).

Nice Marty (the diorama, not the toe!).  Been looking forward to a few more pics of this.  Something about that size dio that appeals as a cool little desktop piece for further inspiration.  I have plans for a similar size dio on my "to do" list, probable more like an old shopfront though, small enough for the desk or even a wall hanger.  Good stuff.



Excellent. Some very nice finishes there.

Well you cetainly out did yourself this time.  Beautiful work.  Nice detail & weathering.
Really looking forward to seeing this with the "Critter" in position.
You might even be able to win a contest with this one :)

Is this going to the structure convention?

Looking good , Marty. In fact it is looking so good I'm not sure I'm going to bother to drag my effort all that way to Mansfield.



Excellent, Marty. Now get well, take care of your injuries, and keep posting inspirational modeling. -- Russ

Wow Marty, awesome!!!

About your plymouth, is it the model preserved at Furnace creek?



I don't know about "preserved"
But yes, the prototype is there.
Ted sent some pictures of it and I had to have one.
More info in the modelers annual in December.
Thanks for the compliment!
