Boy I can't say that on the trestle, them things are a real labor of love, you have to love trestles to spend that kind of time on them, LOTS and LOTS of pieces, but it sure is a conversation piece when it is done.

Had no place in particuliar in mind, I love the mountains out west, so I just started creating a mush of all of them. I had never seen mountains modeled quite like these either, I am sure there are some out there somewhere. /DesktopModules/NTForums/themes/mls/emoticons/wow.gif
