John,

Great job on the rock work. You've been busy.

Jeff, Jerry, Mark, Jan, Tom, Greg, and Loren...Thanks. I'm really happy with the results. Vilius is a true artist - everything is weathered and colored perfectly. It looks board by board...


Next Up (in no order) after adding more underbrush and random scenic king...


-repaint, detail and resurface the river under the bridge...pondering whether to add rocks and running water or just go for that magical Envirotex shine
-paint the upper and lower fascia. I'm very excited to see the effect this has in "framing it all"
-build SWSM Woodcutter Shack for a little hidden spot in the back corner
-build Foscale's Pendleton Marine...which is a really nice, complex background flat structure
-build Bar Mills' FSM tribute Wharf at Doverton, but not on a wharf
All three kits have dedicated real estate with scenery creeping up already, I really want to build the rest myself just to keep the ratio respectable   ;D  I've got BEAUTIFUL builds featured by ReadingBob, ACLTom, FSMCollector Loren, a really cool snowplow and some cars by Dave Fugere and a couple of masterpieces by Vilius, If I build the rest myself, I'm at about 10 myself. I LOVE to feature work by others on my layout but I also need to remind myself what I'm capable of with a little patience and (more challenging to find) time. After that, I'll turn to vehicles, rolling stock, critters, SWSM work train, Jordans, placing figures and details forever...or until I get a wild hair and blow it up (again). I also have a tentative plan to extend a little skinny branch someday, perhaps spanning some high bridges to get to a big sawmill? We'll see, just a brain dump for now.

It looks great!! I love the way the whole scene is coming together.  Structures are supposed to blend into the scenery - very well done.  Vilius did a great job on the build, too.
