    Real nice Paul. Even down to the wood pile and bunny. If it wasn't for the plastic guy, I would swear it was a real shed.

    What type of tweezers do you use?

    Shamus another great addition to your new layout. I'm wondering if you could explain the gauge your modeling ON3? Does that mean all the scenery and trains are O and run on N scale tracks? Where does the #3 come into play?

    Hi Belg,
    0n30 is the scale I am into, not 0n3 which is slightly different again in track width.

    It is 0 gauge running on H0 gauge track but the ties are wider apart. My track is 0-16.5.

    The 30 stands for 30" gauge or as Model Railroader say's 2.5 meaning 2'-6" (Which is 30" anyway)

    Shamus was I right about the size of your scenery being O scale?

    Yes my friend, all the scenery/structures/rolling stock/people are 0 gauge, which means I have a hell of a lot more bigger trees to make now. ANY OFFERS !!

    Hi grlakeslogger
    Thanks all.
    I first of all stained the wood with Antique Pine, then when it was almost dry I scraped a knife down each plank and weathered it with chalks.

    Paul,

    Amazing as usual!

    I hope that you've added the "terrain" with a photo editor. Or is that modeled too?
