    Here are some photos of my N Scale layout. As you can tell, it is a work in progress. I do not have any people yet as I have not been able to find N scale people.

    Wow, great shot Slow! Lookit those wide open spaces. N scale is so cool that way.

    BTW I know that Preiser makes some really nice N-scale people. They use larger models (O-scale?) for the originals and then pantograph them down to HO and N. You should be able to find them at Walthers for a start.

    Here's a sample

    Re:

    In the photo above, my digital camera gives a green hue to everything. I haven't figured out how to solve the problem. The pond is acturally blue. It is made up of layers of polyearthane mixed with blue water color paint. I made a divey in my homosoat boad to give the water some depth. I poored a little polyearthane and let it dry...poored a little more and let it dry...until it was full.

    In the photo above, the brown building is made of wooden match sticks which I stained and polyearthaned. It took me two months of pain stakeing work to build it.

    Hey Slow, lookin good. I use The Gimp to adjust colors and do all my photo manipulation, which I am admittedly not good at, esp. with colors. But you should be able to do wonders with cropping, color shifts and brightness.

    I tried, like I said, I'm no good with color, but it's not the softyware; it's my brain. We got a bad circuit.

    Hi Slow, you stated that your river was blue in an earlier photo, okay, it's now blue plus a few more trees added and a simple background sky.

    Tyson, it's your go next.
