    On the base of the TT I put a real thin coat of ground goop then a lite coat of sifted baseball diamond dirt then a coat of green ground fall. I tried some Bragdon powders around the walls of the TT but they didn't seem to take very well but it is dirtier looking. I also put down some ground goop between the tracks leading out to the TT and sifted some black sand blasting sand. Still more to do in this area one thing for sure this TT works well.

    You are an artist my friend. Love the background especially the mountains. All those buildings will keep you busy I am sure and I will be looking forward to more updates. Thanks for sharing.:thumb:

    Thanks Floyd, I've been working on several projects with nothing seeming to be getting accomplished. I'm building a warf board by board for the past month , I decided to remove the one big bridge at the waterfall and replace it with a much larger bridge and moving that removed bridge to another location on the incline. I also tore up another area for more realestate. Its amazing how easily we can change different areas.:twisted:

    Lynn, just stumbled across your new layout pics. I must have missed your thread when you posted them a few days ago. Your new roundhouse area looks fantastic, really a great job :thumb:. Hope you’ll find the time to show us some more photos of your progress soon. :wave::wave:

    Started new job in steel mill here in Feb so not much time, got 2002 harley in march so definately no time in summer.
    LOL nope not much done other than I built a wharf
    Here's a bit of an update starting with the wharf deck and peers, entire deck is one board at a time nailed down.

    Wharf in place, I'm going to give a stone wall effect and the grounds around the building and upto the wharf edges will get a ground goop effect.

    Lynn...That looks like a lot to me!:winker:
    Great job on the pier and, of course, all of your structures! :thumb::thumb::thumb:
    That is going to be a tremendous scene when it is all complete. Hopefully with the colder weather coming, we can be treated to more of your outstanding work.

    Take care:wave:
