    Mike, I love the layout! :thumb: I used to live in Sandia Park, so it looks familiar. Love the cliff dwellings and Route 66. Can't wait to see the unobtainium mine. :D

    Nuts! You've shamed me into working on something, anything. That, or I'll go eat some rocky road icecream for dinner.

    Mike I really like how you layout is coming together, excellent choices for positioning and I like the structures. The only thing I would like to comment on is the tar paper road I think it really detracks from the rest of your well done scenery it just doesn't look realistic in my eye as far as color and being able to see the edges.
