BSER (Snowflake Challenge)

For discussion of the issues faced when building a model or layout - how to replicate wood, what glues to use, exactly how much weathering can a Gnat take, a good source of detailing accessories - you get the picture, I'm sure.

A few more shots of the finished layout;

While I would have loved to have been able to put more time in, I think it's still a fun and funny little layout. The cars all stay on the track, which was my biggest fear, so I'm glad about that. And I really think Adrian's idea of having Bigfoot with a RR layout was brilliant and it really brings the whole theme full circle. I had thought to have him reading the New Yorker to make him a bit more erudite, but the RR works great. Thanks, Adrian!
One of these challenges, I'm going to be able to use all the time available to really have some fun! But thanks again, Adrian. If it weren't for this challenge, I wouldn't have gotten modeling done this year!

G'day Chris
Glad you liked my idea of Bigfoot's pizza layout.
It would be nice if that worked as well :shock:
Glad that you did manage to get the layout finished (or at least abandoned) and entered into the challenge.
It really does look good.
Cheers

I suddenly realized in reviewing this now that I neglected to post a photo of Bigfoot working on his model of the railway! Image

That is a lovely model, and very inspiring. Thank you for sharing.
