Okay, I think that'll do it for now. I'm not totally happy with it, but I wanted something toy-like and I think it turned out acceptable:

As one of the guys pointed out on another forum, the strata of the rock is kinda running in conflicting directions, and the top looks a bit weird, but it's good enough for now. Won't be too big a deal to pull the top off and redo it, or add foliage, and the front is detachable so I can replace that at some point without having to tear stuff up.

Moving on to new projects.

I think it looks great. Not to mention there are areas in the country where the strata ARE all mixed up like that - this from a fellow who took geology in college because it was supposed to be easier than biology. Of course back then we still thought the earth was flat.

paul ll...

i agree with paulrace...looks great and captures the look of a train layout mountain/tunnel perfectly...just remember...it's your layout...so, have fun...don't loose sleep over the feedback on that OTHER forum... :D ...they're all good folks...but some are just so focused on counting rivets and pure scale details...model railroading is a big hobby...with room for all...

Thanks Paul & Howard...no worries...I'm good with it and moving on. The primary goal was that a kid could look in the hole and see a train coming...mission accomplished. On to the next...

Nice to know I'm not totally off the mark. Two of my college room-mates were geology majors...can't tell you the number of weekends I spent stumbling around former strip-mines in Western Maryland picking up rock samples, lol...learned a lot from those guys. One went on to start a printing business, the other a cartographer for the Army.
