Well I finally got it done guys; took me a lot longer than I thought but it's finished. :)

Now to start putting the bench work together; I'll be starting that tonight and have something to show around Tuesday, I think/hope. ;)

So for any that care to see, here's the Train Room in it's Before and After splendor:

Interesting colour scheme... Had a friend paint one of my Locomotives that colour once... right down to the side rods! Nice and bright I must say. Could paint an intertesting susnset scene to match the trim.

Yes Fergie... it's not the horrible Cathouse Red one it's the After one ... *sighs and wipes his eyes still chuckling* I didn't even paint that color originally but I sure am glad to have it gone :)

Peace.

"200 precent improved!

Ha ha:) maybe an item for "Extreme make over":D
During this "Operation"you were also send to Disney land or Hawaii??:rolleyes:
I do agree with the other members: it has 200 precent improved,well done!!

note: Be carefull with the color:Blue .If your mrrlayout is situated on "Low"level (altitude)it looks like the blue color is mixed with bright "dust"colors. If it is on high level, the mountains like a pass, the blue color can be brighter because the air on high altitudes is much cleaner and has got less humidity
I too prefer SUNNY blue skys:)

Ah yeah! Mucho better and looks good. Should go very well with your layout scenery.

Rex,

Thank you Sir, I agree 100% - took me awhile to find that "yellow, it's hard to see with my terrible camera but it is actually a dark sienna. I think it works pretty well for a guy who hasn't a clue. :)

Peace.

Grove Den,

:D There were times during the painting I wouldn't have minded being in Hawaii, or New Orleans at the very least. ;)

Yes it is a strong blue but I think its going to be OK the section of Arizona I am modeling has some really beautiful, rich and clear blue skies. It's really a very picturesque part of the U.S. out that way.

Thanks again for the good words. :)

Peace.
