The Schmatterhorn,

The Schmatterhorn...or, you can't keep a good lunatic down.

 

Underway ...basic foam work finally done. This is a 2'x2' ish micro using Gargraves flextrack this time as an experiment. 2" thick pink foam from Home Despot, sunlight gives it a wierd silver sheen. This one also splits into two sections, upper and lower. Got a ways to go, but as the Costa Mesa show looms, I was getting a little desperate that I only have one layout, Heckawe Junction, readily accessible. This layout has been in the works since I sold the Angry Beaver but I haven't been able to do it any justice until now.

 

 

 

So far so good, I'll be taking this to Costa Mesa, warts and all, if just to show how it's done.

 

    Have fun with your trains

Proof again that small can be fun. Any plans for a TARDIS on this one?

Hi Tom, long time eh? this will  likely be all scenery again due to the extreme size, will add some Alpine hikers and somewhere I have some O scale mountain climbers to put near the top. I originally wanted to add a couple Swiss chalet facades but it's just too small for it to work and look right.
