    Well, considering the B/W pictures you've posted are less than 0.3MP I don't think camera resolution is much of an issue here :)

    Looking good Tom! :thumb:
    I gotta get my bathroom remodel finished for Mrs. Big, cause then I can start my benchwork. I get both jealous and inspired watching everyone's work progress.

    Tom,

    Looking good! But it's not megapix that are the issue ('cos those photos look fine resolution-wise) - it's focus.

    Does your camera have a "Macro" or "Close-up" feature? That's what you need for those on-table shots of your locomotives. If you don't have it, you could try setting the camera a little further away and using the zoom to frame the pic.

    Thanks for the reply s
    GIL the table was taken from a plan my dad found in one of his model railroader mag's it is 4x8 with a 2x4 extention in the back so 4x 10 with room for side area for a pickel factory and a small loading zone . then i came to see that there was no place to lay my stuff so put in a small fold down table top .
    a few weeks back we had a leak in the fish tank pump well you know it went over the table .. as far as sturdy yes 1/4 inch birch ply wood top and then 1x3 for the sides then cut strips of 1/2 inch plw wood 4 inch wide these are the legs. tall enough so the cat will not be tempted to call it home .
    also got a handle on the photo progran to get the size down to 640x480 and 65k , guess I can hold off on the new camera for a bit ,what is a bit ?
