Keep It Rusty

This photo showcases some particularly excellent scenery work. That ground cover is really something. Well done, Tom.


New building that is scratch built based on prototype. Building is basically finished , Now it has to get installed, Basic landform is in plaster of paris cloth is next. Build for my grand daughters, Zoe Oliva and Isabella, (Bella) They picked the stores to be installed. Interior are added and lights. Bella picked purple handrails for her store. Bella is the one who helped me. She helped painting the trim and she with my guidance finish cut out the windows. It was cut on my Cricut. I think there are 48 windows and doors.


Tom, it's good to hear from you, and see your progress!

         Tom W's layout is sooo realistic and incredible modeling.  I just love it!!!  Lot's to gawk at for sure.  Thanks for posting the updates.  I'm a fan.
                                                                                 Thanx Thom...


Agree with Craig on that ground cover of the engine facility. Looks very prototypical.

That large scratcbuilt store structure is fantastic. Love the way your grand daughters helped out in naming their stores.
