    Selective compression is definitely the order of the day for modeling baseball fields in most cases, I'd think! Jeffrey I love those ball player figures. I wish there were some available as adults in uniform. Guess I'll have to make some someday for my minor league field scene in a corner of the layout. I like your war memorial too. Remember to post a pic of it again next Memorial Day.

    Thanks for the Memorial pic. Did you make the Memorial yourself? It looks great!

    I think the memorial is from Model Power. It was in a box with a bunch of model railroad stuff I picked for about twenty bucks around fifteen or twenty years ago.

    That memorial is now sold as a Bachmann kit.

    As usual Jeff, great modelling skills!

    This was taken from the roof of the American Foundry building next to the park.

    Nice angle. I like the SF logo as a bullseye for the batter too.

    Jeffery, I like you park...

    But every time that you take a picture with our air conditioner in it, I am taken aback. It look as though some large scale simi has crashed through your train room wall!:mrgreen:

    The AC is the AC, it's there to stay. I'd paint it but it's not paid for yet.

    Hmm, I wonder what it would look like if you were to construct a screen made of window screen material and painted the same color of blue as the other backdrops .. and then it could hide the AC but still allow for cooling.

    You might also paint in some stands with baseball fans watching the game along the lower edge.

    Cheers

    I tried a painted screen a couple of years ago. It looked like crap.

    jeff- that last picture is great

    As for the AC - at least it is keeping your ball players cool :)
