Ok, I like to start a thread on work that your the most proudest of to date. It can be a scene from your layout, Building,locomotive, Rolling Stock, etc. And tell why your proud of it.

Ronnie D. :cb:  I'll get things started !!!!


Out of all the things I've built since I've been in this Hobby. I'm the most proud of is this scene from my old (R&P Lumber Company Layout). because it went from the ceiling to the floor and it took 2 months to build. !!  In freezing cold weather in my old workshop building.

Side Note:(for those of you who are wondering what scale is this, It's "G" scale.)




This section of the layout was called: Crossing the bridge at Indian Leap.

.


 Ok I had to add one more scene from my second ("G" scale  Soggy Bottom Boy layout.) It was a toss up between the two of which one to post.

It's funny you mention building it in a freezing workshop... I was just telling my wife I wanted to setup a small work table indoors.

Here´s mine, I choose this one because it was my first weathering in a steam loco, I did many weatherings but at this time, I did only in diesels and cars but never in a steam loco. And was pleased once I saw the results. It´s a Spectrum 0n30 OF Forney. I added many details, and the plate at sides are my own laser cut in 1mm acrylic.





Here is with her partner, a scratchbuilt auxiliary water tank.




Another pic of the water tank

For those of you who are relatively new here, Lucas is a master of weathering.

Like you couldn't see that for yourself---

I am very fond of this corner of my old narrow gauge layout...




And I am quite proud of the rock work on my Z micro layout...




But my favourite shot is just down to a fluke of lighting, cos I love the way this low angle shot of my GP9 looks like an old photograph.





Thanks for the opportunity to go through my pics and share!

Phil

Sorry guys I just had to add one more photo !!! Here one of my favorite shots in On30. I use a spot light behind the layout to make it look like the sun was peeking through the early morning backwoods on their first run of the day.

Thanks Lucas! I always intended to incorporate the micro layout into a larger module, something like the picture below showing my two "end" modules. I think it would look great with a Casey Jones train going round as a tourist attraction!

Not been able to get at any of my Z stuff since we relocated, bizarrely it takes up too much room!!! So it's still in storage. Hoping to get chance to work on my HOn30 micro and hopefully start an On30 micro soon. Life and work keep getting in the way!



BTW, I love the weathering on your steam engine!

Ronnie- That's a great shot of the "sunlight" through the trees, great idea.

Cheers

Phil
