Thank you Harry!
This new creek turned out pretty nice Tyson! It's great how you can put so much details on your small layout without it looking overcrowded.

Thanks Matt, I need to get back to work on it.
For a sign how about just posting " The End is NEAR!" :mrgreen:

Oh yeah, git your butt back to work,and get some pictures posted.

Love the creek by the way. Thumbsup
I worked on it some tonite as a matter of fact, letting glue dry as we speak, er, type. Goldth Still a ways to go before pics though.
Hope you never get done Mike ....the updates are just too cool . Keep 'em comin'. Goldth

Thanks T, although it's pretty mundane compared to that ballpark your club is building,
Nope "MUNDANE ?? Nope Mike you are waaaaaaay to modest in yourself appraisal of the Nantahala Midland.
Thanks Catt but you must not have seen the ballpark they are building! Eek Worship
My two cents?
That which is built by Man, can be modeled by Man. A collection of repetitive details, assembled to create a recognizable structure. Time consuming? Absolutely! Requiring skill and patience? absolutely! Creative? Yes, but, in reality just copying what Man has already done.
That which is built by "Nature", can be replicated in miniature, but isn't as "cut and dried" as a freight car, Bridge, or Ball Park. Capturing the "randomness" of a natural scene takes a completely different set of skills.
There are two different kinds of painters. One applies color to a structure, or wall. The other, tells a story, or records the "mood" of a place, in color, on canvass. One is a "painter" the other is an "artist".

The Ballpark is impressive, mainly because of the massive number of "identical pieces" that have to be made, and assembled, and the need for each to actually be "identical".
In the end, two completely different disciplines, that really are not comparable, though, equally noteworthy.
Building a " scenic layout " takes a combination of both.
I have seen the area you're modeling, and you have captured the "feel" of it extremely well !
Thanks Pete, much appreciated.
Just a random shot while playing with the camera.
