Well, maybe you're tired of the rocks, but I doubt the rest of us are - I think it's cool how much you got those rocks to look like real railroad ballast. Very cool!

Incredible amount of work you're putting in on this TC, and it is looking grand to say the least.

Re: Copperhead W.I.P.

TC, I am so impressed with the extra debre/sticks and such you put in with the rocks/ballast, very authentic looking. You always go the bit extra to make the scene look real and it shows well. Great work! I know you must be tired of the rocks but it is worth it. Rick

Re: Copperhead W.I.P.

Your vision is coming alive. I too like all those unexpected details in the foreground. It would be so easy to just skip past all that but it adds character (as if you're not enough of a character already ). Looking good!!
