Today I built a fuel tank for one end of the layout. Simple affair made from a cardboard tube, some heavy paper and card stock. Painted with acrylics. Now need to find some clutter like gas cans, 55 gal drums etc to fill in the area.

Really nice stuff, Bob! Thanks for sharing your work with us. Any chance we could see some close up images of the engines and rolling stock?

Close up of one of the yellow critters. All 4 are scratch built with balsa, cardstock and brass tubing. All are powered by Bachmann GE44 ton power trucks and DelTang RC gear with a single cell LIPO.

Judging by the indent on the critter's roof, I think I know why that guy's half-bald...

Woodie,

Receiving a compliment from you is very meaningful to me. I have been watching your layouts for some time and admire your work. If I had seen your work earlier I would certainly be working in 1/32 scale. I recognize the term you used and modeled it.

Bob
