Les’ structures can be seen on many of the Green Valley modules

IN March, Mike gave us a weathering and container class

Mike gave us hints on the fine line between weathering to look like the models are dirty, and looking like they are ready for scrap. He also showed us how to create containers for those mile long intermodal trains we all complain about waiting for at crossings.
