I will wait for warm weather for spray.

And I really should have made my own bell.

A follow up on the people for the layout issue -- The scale Figures problem is solved.


This may be the first set of 1/55 scale figures for American modelers.
I feel sort of proud to be a tiny lever in the machine to promote 1/55 scale modeling.

I contacted a man on Shapeways who does figures for other scales.
He has agreed to make me some 1/55 scale copies of these three figures:

Having looked at many O and S scale figures as options for modification,
I can say these are so much more detailed and natural looking,
that they will make a great first set to go with my models.

The 3D figures arrived.

So here are some examples of how my models look with people.
Not sure if I like this scale, or would prefer a 2' 1/35 look now.

The Red Devil is less of a critter and more of a beast next to these people.
I think that when I finally get an HO scale steamer to convert, that that loco will be more suited to this scale.
The HO scale loco I starter with for the Red Devil was actually closer to O scale in all regards. 

I will probably just stick with this for a little while.

The caboose is really the scale model.

I used a scale rule to measure it, and fudged just a little bit to make it easier to put together.

Hi T.G.B.  :wave:



I'm glad to see that your 6'6" giant, Gigi the goalie, is retired at last ! ...  :bg:

... I hope his 2D cardboard spirit, is being re-cycled into a football program as we speak !!  ;)



I love the new ghostly looking 'Bladerunner' ? style placky-print-peoples.  :thumb:



With all this hi-tech $4!7 these days ...
... even  oDdBaLL  1:55n3 size folk, are just a couple of computational CLICKS away from becoming plastic reality !  :brill:





The Gilpin caboose & 'Pete Plastic' look absolutely SPOT ON ! to me.  :thumb:



The figure may look a tad too big to some people ...

... But that small 2' gauge caboose door is 6' high, by OFFICIALLY accurate 'Colorado & Southern' yard-sticks.  :P



At 6' straight, I would probably bang my head on the door frame ...  :f:

... & if I had a 10-Gal. hat on, I'd have to duck for sure.  :cb:



The model & Pete Plastic are lookin' GREAT !  :cool:

Gotta be worth at least 5 10-Gal. hat dudes !!!!!  ;)



:cb: :cb: :cb: :cb: :cb:



Si.

I keep planning a layout.

While most layouts are very flat and the mountains do not reach very high,
it seems like a narrow gauge layout should go floor to ceiling,
if one wants to create the look of places like Gregory Gulch.

Zoom the image and you'll see all the little wood walkways, steps, and stone retaining walls.
