:lol: One little vignette I considered building on the layout was the drug deal gone bad showdown from the beginning of No Country for Old Men.

I'm in two minds at the moment. There is still lots I can do with this as it is a bit of a blank canvass for scenes and detail. I might keep working on it until late next year while I collect the stuff and plan for the Japanese layout. One thing I would like to work on with this is trees. The scene with the hill would look great with a stand of pines on top. Trees are one of the hardest thing to do convincingly in model railroading.

Great finish Grant. It looks as I’d expect that part of the world to. It reminds me a little of some of the areas I’ve lived in only without the red dirt.
