|Wolfe Street on backdrop|
|Using a piece of flex track to mock up the loco works siding. |
The actual siding will be hand land on wood ties.
|An earlier attempt at painting a track extension on a backdrop|
This is a very tricky backdrop interface to paint. I've done this once before and it works well, but only from one viewpoint- straight in. So one needs to use view blocks to prevent looking at the interface from oblique angles.
|Laser Cut Pieces - No Mistakes!|
I also started building the loco works. Again, there are no good photos except the Bird's Eye view. The ACW era QM Map shows the dimensions of the building's footprint, but no other data. Using those dimensions and the Bird's Eye view, I drew up this plan.
In a laser cutting first for me, the first draft of the building had no mistakes. Maybe I should buy a lottery ticket!
I quickly glued the parts together to see how it fits. I plan to use texture paper to add the bricks to this building. We'll see how that goes.
