I saw Cliff's clinic, his models and met him in Memphis.  The models are stunning.  And he's one of the most friendly and gracious guys you'd ever want to meet.  Very productive modeler too considering he has a young family!

Thanks , thats the best overall detailed layout that doesn't look too model RR like . Very believable scenes . This should be everybody's goal regardless of scale . The blond not facing us in the river looks to be topless . The wire work on the poles matters , though in N presents delicate and scaling challenges . Head on shots of cars , with narrow wheel spreads should be avoided in photos because they then look like a kids peddle car . Outstanding detailing and scenicing fodder for us N scalers Chris . Thanks

I love it!  Makes me want to head down to the IGA for a nice cool lemonade...

Awesome modeling.  I like that there's enough detail to attract the eye, but he doesn't "Sellios" it to death.

Yeah while watching the first video I was wanting a different train, but there is so much more to see that the train didn't matter any more.

Those backdrops are great. They are photos, but each one fits the scene perfectly.

Well, I ended up going to Portside for a stuffed flounder and a couple pints of Bass...  Still made me feel all warm and nostalgic!!...

The scenery is magnificent, looks a lot like the Mississippi I used to cover for the Penn Central, but what really makes it is the lighting - it's perfect. The backdrop must be backlighted.  8)

Nice but hard to "gauge" the real visual impact from photos.

I particularly like the town pics, I hope to even approach that feel on my layout.

Nice find Chris !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Lots of great pictures & ideas. When its that nice,it doesn't matter what scale it is. If you get lost in the scene,its REAL good.

I've been following the MAG for a while. I like the current version so much better than the first one he had in GMR. The scenery is pretty damn good.
I WANNA SEE THE BOAT MOVIE!

Not much more I can say about the MA&G. How he detailed it to just the right level to draw one into the scene...  ;D :D

I liked his old layout modeling Gulfport, MS (I think?), too. Big change.  :o
