I will make no excuses.. I can't paint. I'm extremely grateful to Walter Smith, @southernnscale, one of my customers who sent me this photo:

That's great. I would include a coin in the photo just to put it in a scale context- just my 2 cents (literally haha).

^^ HAHA! Laughing

Great work fitting all that detail into those tiny areas while still sticking to the design rules! Surprised

I find it amazing that someone can even paint anything at this level. They must breathe really really carefully! Laughing




I prefer to know nothing about everything rather than everything about nothing.

One small note that I left out. Notice that the forks OPERATE! You can slide the forks up and down to any position.

Hmm. Need to find a way to power them, and one could do away with the whole railroad setup and just play warehouse.
(Maybe resistance-heated nitinol wire would work for operating the fork, and magnets on a track under the layout for moving the whole thing ?)
