    Finally did some more work on the module

    Planted some trees ans layed some ground cover down. I also did the yard for the Great West Pre-Stress Building, which is still not done yet, the back half of the yard still needs to be layed out

    heres some quick pics, the white stuff around the trees is the glue that I used to set the trees which will dry clear:

    You work fast man.

    It looks really good. I like the shallow creek bed, going under the bridge, really adds to it. Are you planning on using any of these modules in your future layout or are you building them just for kicks?

    sign1 I would charge thru the roof hahahahaha

    Thanks :mrgreen:




    I hung some shelf brackets, these were heavy duty 20" brackets. I set the module on the brackets and put a couple screws into the base thru the bracket holes on the tops of them. Man this module is HEAVY!!!!!! lol Heres some pics:

    As you can see there is barely enough room for the buildings to the ceiling lol but i planned for that and i wanted it to be close like that. This gives me a full 18" between the bottom of the module brackets and the tops of the shelf layout brackets which should be PLENTY of room lol

    Not done on this module by any means, still have alot of work to do, ill just have to pull it down off the wall for now on to work on it :rolleyes:

    Hey guys check a friend of mine photos of the 2007 MWTTS Dyersvill 1/64 scale Truck show. Look on Webshot and lookup grimreeper250 or just cleck on his name here and look up his pictures. I plan to do the truck stop as soon as I get as many trucks as TruckLover but let me know what you think. Oh, Josh there is a truck wash. By the way you and Kevin both do Great work.
