Now I have to add some color variations, some sand,foliage, pave the road, and a few minor things and it will be done.
It will be a dio of Jan and Deans song Deadman's Curve.

Now, that was brilliant ... using paint to create a natural look! It looks just right.
Hadn't planned on the reaction I got from the paint but it's great. I used some Fleck It paint to simulate granite.

Do they make an HO scale XKE?
Yep it's from Model Power if I remember right. I had one already then I found the Corvette. That was 3 years ago, been brewing in my head since then. Finally decided to take some action on it. Next years theme for the NNL North is Corvettes. So might as well get one ready.
Nice work, Junior! The idea is really clever. Should be cool when it's finished!
Thanks Sam. It may even become part of Mr Rogers neighborhood dio.

The Corvette is also from Monogram Mini X -acts series. If I can't find my XKE I will be in Mpls. next weekend, and do some scouting, also we have a big train show at the end of the month. Hopefully something will turn up.
