    EVER HAVE THIS HAPPEN?

    I did some scenicing and was very proud of it, so I snapped a pix. This isn't a normal viewing angle but I thought it would be a good shot of what I had got done today. Corregated rock sticks out like a sore thumb. Fred

    Wow! Outstanding scenery!

    LOL about the cardboard... I wouldn't have noticed it if you would have kept it a secret! Hehehe. Looks great though, and Im sure that's easy to scenic over. :)

    Great stuff Fred! Photo's can bring out the best... or the worst. As Arl said, it's more noticable if you know about it.

    Nice work and photos Fred.
    It took me a while to find the corrugated rocks because I was seeing all the other fine details in the scene. Then once I saw it, it did stick out. Easily fixed though.
    I like the old trestle in the river module, it adds character to the scene.

    Fred, that looks great! I probably wouldn't have noticed the cardboard either if you hadn't mentioned it. I like how you did the riverbed, too.

    Fred I agree with you that you should be proud of the work you did and I enjoyed seeing the angle that you took. The trestle in the river that ends what is its purpose? Or is it supposed to represent something thats been abandoned? Pat

    Fred, your layout is great. But I do have a question about one of your pictures. The pic with the gas distributor why are there military figures in the background?
