TREE POINT a small layout module

Hi Koos.

I never thought of that; sounds like a recipe for disaster. Think I'll steer clear of the clever stuff for now, at least until I'm a little more experienced Big Grin

I might have got away with it but knowing my luck, some eagle eyed observer would obligingly point it out Cry

Regards,

Jonte; Tell them that your looking forward to them showing you 'just how its done' on their layout, like 'right now'.

That should shut them up real fast.

Would love to Mark, but I'm too much of a shrinking violet Wink

Just do it Jonte,

the fun is in the learning and improving too! If you highlight evenly then you won't have the 'problem' I mentioned, subtle colour variations will bring it all too life, and will look great.
Just give it a try, and those that are critical will then have the challenge to improve yours. Ask them to show you how it's done, let them use your materials and supplies, and that way you end up with some nice looking extra trees for example, if they are confident enough to take on your challenge (formulated in a request for help ) :-)

One remark about the used permanent marker. The one from Walthers is intended to paint rails. It has a "nice" price. I suggest to local shop for an ordinary brown permanent marker at a reasonable price if you intend to tone down more green.

The GERN Industries corporation has just announced the opening of a new facility in Tree Point, Wisconsin.
Rather than building a new warehouse, they took over existing facilities, saving them sufficient money to be at least 3% better off.

The facility will enable the company to distribute their products in the area by rail, rather than road, due to rising demand, and complaints from the local town council, due the traffic created by the trucks which increased such that is causes gridlock at busier times in the day. Immediately after the opening, the first box cars arrived, and caused an immediate reduction in road traffic of 3% in the first hour of the facility being opened, this could have been better had it not been for the press showing up, and the protest some local truckers staged.

Thank you, as the slogan goes 'When it's GERN, it's good' :-)

Modeling a GERN facility will open up a new dimension in your hobby experience. Your modeling will be 3% better, you'll have at least 3% more fun. Read the links I provided at the bottom of that post, and soon you'll be a convert. :-)
