Two pics from the constraction give you futher information:
It´s classic benchwork, no modules.
Here you have a look from beneath the helix which is below Ft. Hancock. I use an LED-strip "in case of emergency", to have the propper lighting if something goes wrong. Unfortunately I have not found a good method to fix the wires an the foamboard. After a while the tape is loose again .
Here you see the future extension in progress. Again, it´s classic benchwork.
At left there is Sierra Blanca and a pecan tree plantation. The T&P line climbs up before the backdrop, goes arround it to Allamore / Tx. and to Van Horn / Tx. staging. The SP line in the foreground goes arround the hills. The "hole" on the right side of the peninsula will be the future Valentine / Tx. station. The line will continue to Marfa / Tx. and the Paisano pass. Below Sierra Blanca there are the 7 tracks of El Paso staging.
With a few compromises ( size of windows ) I was to able to build the "Our Lady of Miracles" mission of Sierra Blanca / Tx.
Yes, the US model market for churches, pre-built & kits, has pretty much dried up. Stonebridge made a beautiful country church that I managed to find but the company has folded. There is a resin model made in Germany that sells occasionally on eBay. I personally don't like it, but others on this forum do. Miller's micro structure church has a rediculously tall steeple, way out of proportion to the building. And many folks struggle with etched brass kits.
