    Hello everyone, I just finished this model of the Boggstown elevator
    built in the early 1900. Most of the work was done in PhotoShop some
    in Pro-e and Illustrator. N scale

    Very cool! Put it outside and take a few photos and you might trick us into believing it is the real thing!

    Hey thanks everyone for the vote of confidence. This is my second model design, it took about 2 ½ months to design and 3 days to build. My avatar was the first however it’s based on a photo of a HO plastic model.
    There are more pics uploaded in the card models main album of the elevator

    Wow, Steve, that's an impressive model, especially for tiny N scale.

    Because I also design structures using Photoshop, I would love a closer look at your work. Where is that "main album" thread?

    Thanks for the detailed view!

    Very nice work. I especially like the graphics, notably the stonework and windows Very effective use of light and shadow to suggest textures, very realistic. I also like the details such as the window a/c unit and the red container (trash can?) with metal handle in mvc-851f.jpg. Let's see, in N scale, that handle must be what, three pixels? Nice touch! :)
