Time for a probe lens Santiago do you want me to lend you mine? Lookin RAD!
Hello Santiago', I hate to pester you'... I just read your excellent article in O Scale Resource mag. Beautiful job. But could you please tell me a little on how you use the granulated sugar to make the carnations... I detailed a Hollywood Lounge car very similar to your recent car above... Same seats and tables... etc. I added small plants, but I wanted flowers in vases. I have the vases, but no flowers....😕 So I need your help'..😁
Thanks in advance Santiago'...
Sure, Ted. I use woodland scenics field grass or static grass to make the stems. Once glued to the vase, I dip the top of the stems with plastic cement and dip the wet tips on granulate sugar. I wait for it to dry, then I pant them with acrylic paint and a 000 brush. Hope that helps.

I know very little of GGD's Milwaukee Road set. Are these interiors part of their offering, or did you do all the interiors?? These interior shots are incredible.
The interiors are part of the offering, I just add a few things here and there..... GGD is the best!
Santiago, your posts are a Master Class in modeling. Please keep them coming. Hope I am up to the challenge when mine gets here. Thanks for showing what’s possible.
While I do not aspire to create models on the level you do, your work is very motivating and I believe it is folks like you that help everyone build better models/railroads.
While the entire interior looks great, the tabletops stand out to me. I do not think I have ever seen stained wood tables look so good in O scale.
Thanks for sharing your work!
Cost is listed on the GGD Website. I could probably justify a three car set, but eight is too many. They are indeed beautiful.
Thanks! Scott does really nice work. I am saturated with long passenger trains, but would have added a Skytop and maybe a coach if they had been offered separately. A fellow forumite was going to do the rear windows on "Shapeway", but sort of dropped out. If I get my hands on an ABS part it will go to Valley Brass for conversion.
Fully agree. A brass enclosure would be ideal. I’m not a fan of the clear inserts due to optical aberrations and frame thickness.
I was also more interested in the Twin Cities as they are more accurate for my E6, but it is what it is.
At any rate, I am more than thankful for Scott’s much appreciated gifts. They are precious.
All beautiful. But sorry to not see a RPO. Can anyone out there offer up some shots of the RPO ? It would help me decide on whether to commit to reserve one from run #2.
I didn’t order one, but I’d too would like to see one.
Thanks for the post !!! Super Nice !!!!!!!! Lots of well executed add on parts. The roof vents really “pop” for me. The grey painted trucks allow a great detailed view of the trucks and the port hole windows are a distinctive difference from the usual.
Now lets see someone else post with the maroon and gold lettering !!! 😬
no thank you !!!! you are the man!!
