    I have completed 3 structures for the ACTRR. The first two are Downtown Deco Addams Ave 1 and 2 but one was narrowed front to back in half and the other was cut to angled to fit across from the Bus Depot. The Third is the existing Bowling alley (Robins Lakeside Lanes) with the inside milled out to accept the Miller Engineering sign.
    Now to get them out on the layout permanently.

    Here is finally a method I came up with to make N Scale (or HO) yuccas.
    I will try to do a how to and post it on our site soon.
    It only requires Tan, white and grey craft paint, woodland yellow grass turf, woodland white flowers and silflor summer tufts and thick ACC.

    Here are the results on the work bench.

    Embedded the video for you. You can do that in the advanced mode, just put in the number without the website part, just the thKyNKCocu0 in between the Youtube brackets that come up when you press the YouTube button. :)

    Thanks once again, I always forget as I belong to so many groups and every one does it different.

    Very nice

    Looks good. I liked the modern "graffiti" on the cars and weathering. Nice Video too.

    I noticed that you used the Woodland Scenic's beekeepers on your layout. They make for a nicely detailed scene. I've used them for their intended purpose, but I also found that they make great hazmat workers at my Toxic Siding industry.

    Well everyone I finally got a small amount of work done in the room as well as some time to finally do video 28.
    It seems when I get the time and start working on the layout I will go great guns for awhile then something comes up and I slow back down.
    It seems right now I am at a peek again and seem to have a few ideas on areas that were hanging me up. WOOOO WHOOOO!!!

    Today I got out and started to blend the scenery into the mounted Used Car Lot and the Small Depot.

    Hello all , It was time to do another video. I tried to spruce this one up some, so looking for some input.
    Just a short update on the completed items lately on the Albuquerque Carnuel & Tijeras.
