Greetings from Bristol (Wisconsin-USA):

Must have had a lapse of memory last night as when I went to up-load to my thread the material disappeared.  Consequently the previous entries were for the purpose of testing me.

My absence the last couple of weeks have been due to the current economic situation here in the United States.  The lack of understanding of our elected officials is dumbfounding.  We seem to be asking the same people who created this problem to solve it! Well enough of that.


A particular hello to John-RJR; Owen69 and Phil.

I am currently working in Photo Studio 5.5 which may be a free software program that can be down-loaded from the Internet.  I received mine with my Cannon camera.  Although, the photos that are appearing to this point have been made with Sony “Cyber-shot 2.0” a relatively simple digital camera.  
 

These two pictures were the first I made with this camera and the first that I work on in Photo Studio 5.5.  I do have Adobe InDesgin but have yet to figure out how to use it, that along with an old version of Photo Shop that for is quite difficult to navigate a picture to a desired finish.




My focus at this time will turn to working on the MPD that services my Tilbee Road station.  Locomotives arrive at the station and drop their carriages which will be back out by a station shunter.  By a series of three moves the Locomotive moves to the turntable and then two more moves puts in front of the engine shed.  

Since I missed the opportunity to make the photos of the real scenes when steam prevailed I will use this layout to create representations of that era (within my limited skill level). 

 

The shed is made from connecting two Walthers kits together.  Although it does not depict typical British shed architecture I will accept its weakness at this phase in development to get this part of the layout looking like something other then a plywood dinosaur.


The large grey building is from a Walthers brewery kit built as per instructions and the other is an old Kibri building that’s been kicking around for years (this has weathered itself).



I think that the shed is acceptable and has a nice wall for backing up loco shoots.

I have chosen to use large industrial buildings to back drop the MPD scene.  These need to be weathered and British steam era signage needs to replace American names and logos.  



This is a picture from a Walthers kit ad.  These kits are good value and provide an excellent set of mouldings.  As the cost of sheet material is high and the time it takes to layer over layer this is a good jump start if you can accept ready made walls.



Newly arrived here in the colonies is a shipment of vehicles form the U.K.   These I have just set-up to see how they will look.  Base-Toys and Classix are the manufacturer, and I think they will look with a little weathering.



"Your Model Railway" form has been very helpful to me as a long distance modeller.  Looking at "Members Personal Layouts" has already help me formulate solutions to my layout problems.  I look forward to future posts by members and hope that in the future I can offer some ideas that will be beneficial to others here. 

Warmest regards,

Larry, is the steam what you have done in the photo software? Or is it something else? Do you have an un-retouched photo to compare?

The cars look great, but that looks like an awful lot weathering to do.

Larry some great photos of your layout your are certainly making progress

I love that Walthers engine shed i dont think it looks out of place there were a great deal of variations on engine shed design the trouble is we always tend to look at what manufacturers produce and assume they all look like that but the reality was and is they varied greatly i would be very happy with that on my layout.

Keep the good work up

cheers Brian.w

Hi Wayne & BrianW. :

Here are some before and after photos...



Added a steam and a little smoke to the Pannier.




 

Original photo...
   

Sky cloned and smudge...



Smoke and steam layer added...



Crop out foreground... lower contrast of mid-tones slightly....

 

Conversion to B&W....



With foreground subject the loco shed becomes less of an architectural element, added building and loco in backgroud to create effect I seeking.

Regards,

Hi Larry like the look of your layout especialy the buildings. Just one thing I can't work out if you are modeling UK or USA. In one of your pics the cars are on the wrong side of the road! Keep up the good work.:thumbs

Larry - there's some brilliant photos there and the layout is moving along at a cracking pace.

Don't worry about the cars being on the wrong side - I think Classix do a 3 car Police set - just buy it and book the lot of them !!

The buildings look very impressive too - change the signs for UK signs and you'd hardly know they were American prototypes !!  I'd love some of those large factories on my layout - may have to browse the Walther catalogue myself. :roll::roll:

What I'd really like you to explain is exactly HOW you do the photo editing stuff. :hmm
