    I am impressed with "United Transport", it really has a nice feel for a modern trucking facility. I like how there is a tiny bit of clutter to convey it is a busy place, yet an overall feeling of a clean, safe work environment. Nice job.

    I have to agree with Stuart: very nice modelling, and a nice job on the photography, too.

    Can I Have Fries With This Grease?...

    Well, it sure has been a BUSY weekend on the new layout. i have "UNITED TRANSPORT" about 95% complete now AND...the "WEST END DINER" is now about 90% complete!:D on my previous layout i did a very similar diner scene, i used the Cornerstone diner(far superior to this one:cry: ) and the layout was based on CNW in the 50-60's(i have pics of that diner scene if anyone is interested). i liked the diner scene so much i wanted to do an updated one on my new layout(UP 80-today). i used the City Classics diner, sorry to say its not as good as the Cornerstone, but i made due as best as i could. besides the diner NOT being a great quality kit, i had problems with the red marker on the roof awning, i used a ruler to get straight lines, but the darn marker bled:curse: . i think i am going to rip it off the roof and take another try at it:( . i put 9 people in the diner, cant really see them, need to put a light in it and add a few more details to the outside...well, heres how it looks so far. **hope to talk to you guys/gals in the forums over the week, till then...stay on track!:thumb: :D View attachment 26835 View attachment 26836 View attachment 26837 View attachment 26838

    OK now how long have been working on this? If I understand correctly only a couple of months. If that is right it is amazing. Looks great to me.
