(sorry about the picture quality)

I made this for my O-scale train layout, and I thought it may work in this form. It's meant to drop down from the board to catch people's attention. I also plan to use it with my wargaming stuff when I take it all back out in the spring! It's mostly cardboard, plaster cloth, and sculptamold. the water is just basic resin poured at different times(the big random white blobs were my dad's idea to stop the resin flow in section, but it turned out horrible! Mad ) I still have to add some water effects from Scenic Express! heres some pics











My Dad putting down the layout track!




Some babes getting a suntan on the gunky beach, but nowhere close to Michi's types.... Rolling Eyes




What it looks like when fit between the two boards! (the crappy green paper will be eventually mixed with various turfs, etc)


I also got to use some of the Supertrees from Scenic Express that turned out really nice after they were completed!





I added this last pic because i'm thinking of adding a mirror at the far end to make it look like the stream keeps going on and on. it would be located under ones of the bridges at the far end and would make it look a lot bigger than it is. also with the curve at the one end and the trees throughout the gorge it makes it hard to notice that there is a mirror there.

regards,

Wow, that was the first actual jawdropper I have seen in a long time (no kidding! Shocked ).

Very nice, and think of the possible scenario's!

I was going to hopefully use it in a scenerio where someone has to hold a bridge (over the gorge) for a certain amount of time till reinforcements arrive or something of that sort!

Wow! Brad, this is absolutely breathtaking! The gorge is so nicely modeled and detailed that I could imagine one of George Lucas´ ILM cameras flying through, just to copy a StarWars speederbike or something in later! Shall I tell you what I think?
That terrain is perfect for american war of independence! I can see Chingachkook and Nathaniel, Unkas and the Munroe-daughters right running through the water, followed by Hurons on their warpath...
It screams for a game like that!
By the way - I can´t wait to see the finished railroad layout! Makes my heart bleed, that all my cars and locos are stored in boxes for years... Crying or Very sad

It´s great, that your Dad works so close with you. I wish you fun and success with that project! Very Happy

Not practical? Evil or Very Mad

Looks great and has loads of possibilities.

they actually havent been in boxes for that long, only about 8 months at the most! We usually put up the layout around Christmas time every year. It's a lot of work to do it, but remember we also have to take it down!!! Shocked Shocked it just keeps expanding a little every year!


and thanks guys i just posted some pictures of the logging company for anyone in the Chat Section!



Thanks,

I seem to remember reading in a book about an action an American unit did in Belgium or eastern France. They had to advance through a a tree lined gorge. Took several days and they about about got their butts handed to them. When I get back to Alaska next week, I will look it up.

First thing that came to mind was Rogers Rangers trying to get from one end to the other,i think your dad gave you a bum steer with that grey blocking area every so often but hey we live and learn,may be you could add som bits of stone so each of these to look like a white water area.

Anyway great modeling,to make those trees tougher/more rubbery i dip them in PVA a couple of times befor doing anything with them,as i say it cuts down on how brittle they are.
