    Finally got my Rock Island RS-3 (Atlas) this morning from my "connection". Was playing around with it, and the macro setting, on my Hutchinson diorama.

    Cool pics Mike! I like shots of railroad equipment sneaking behind structures or being framed by buildings as they cross roads....very prototypic looking. Did you paint the grafitti on David's? It looks very convincing. The Drambuie billboard looks like hundreds I've seen along the highways. Nice to see that old RI scheme too! I used to see locos like that cross the campus of Central College in Pella, IA back in the late 70's.

    Graffiti is actually a decal I printed using my inkjet; billboard is done using same printer on decal paper. Original is from one of my 1980 magazines that I found at that antique market I mentioned.

    The signs look great, nice job. :thumb: . What brand printer did you use? I printed some decals using an HP printer, but the ink ran when I tried to apply the decals.

    Your comment about finding a 1980's magazine in an antique store sure makes me feel old. :D
