Taking in a night game
« on: February 24, 2017, 03:46:01 am »
Was out in the garage getting a lift in and in between sets thought I'd take a photo of some folks taking in a night baseball game. Spring Training is here!

Good photo Scott

I'm assuming that your baseball diamond has proper floodlights?

It's not clear whether the guys on the roof are happy or sad about what's happening on the field.

Presumably the absence of firemen on the street holding out a soft landing opportunity indicates "happy".

Hi Scott

Great work on those buildings.
I especially liked blinds and curtains on Windows.
I also noticed that the buildings have interior/people inside as well.
I think those details make a big difference.
Is this a part of your layout?
I'm looking forward to seeing more!!

Green shirt guy looks concern. I think the game is tied.

Thanks, and yes I have lights around the field. I used Brawa HO scale floodlights at they have just about the perfect height for a ballpark's lights.

Thanks so much for the kind words! It was a long labor of love. Yes, it's part of a layout. I modified a Woodland Scenics Scenic Ridge and made two odes to my childhood - a minor league ballpark and a trailer (caravan) park, which is what I grew up in.

Hello!

It looks like pretty much complete!
I agree that HO scale lights are quite effective!!
Nice to see using a different scale items on N!! I always kick out of those ideas!!
I also liked how you modelled mountains. Are they polyfiber ball trees?
And how did you altered a Scenic Ridge plan?

Thanks again!

The trees are done like these: http://www.ngaugeforum.co.uk/SMFN/index.php?topic=15475.0

I guess when I say I altered the Scenic Ridge plan, that's an over statement. The track plan is the same, I changed the arrangement of the land allotments to suit my city and baseball stadium dimensions.

I too like the trees. The ballpark with game in progress look very good as does the caravan park. Looks like a real northeast US scene?

The idea was somewhere in the Ohio/West Virginia/Kentucky Appalachian area. I grew up in Ohio and went to college in Kentucky and this area was B&O country, so I was trying to represent that. Trying.  :)

Scott, I think you succeeded with your layout to capture Ohio.

My layout is also based in Ohio and Indiana.

Scott, very nice picture.
It is looks like some small town I've seen when I was traveling in Ohio last year!
