    Haven't posted here in quite a while but thought some of you MCers might be interested in the Disney inspired, Big Thunder Mt. themed model railroad under construction in my studio.

    Still has a long way to go but things are coming along. The railroad has its own website if you'd like to follow along and see how things are built: Thunder Mesa Mining Co.

    My apologies if this is the wrong forum for this post.

      WHOAAAAAA!!!

      You literally made me speechless for a few seconds! That is absolutely incredible!!! Such detail and precision! It's a work of art! What are you going to do with it after you're finished?

      If you don't mind me asking, is this part of your job or just a hobby? Do you have other models? I would love to see pictures of your other models if you have any!

      Thanks for sharing!

              Thank you very much. It's a hobby. I'm a commercial artist by trade (illustration/graphic design) though I did do some model work back in the day. As for what I'll do when it's finished... Well, to misquote a man we all admire, it will never be finished so long as there's imagination left in my head.

                    Love it! I'm always captivated by miniature models, I could stare at them for... well not hours, but minutes! Great job!

                        Thanks. It's a lot of fun. Kind of like having my own little piece of Disneyland. Here's a couple more shots.

                            I just showed one of my kids and he thought it was pictures of the actual ride.
