    They might come later, but it wasn't my intention to make it look like it was moving. more like a display.
  4. But if your intention wasn´t to let the train looks moving, why there are some travellers onto this train? :lick:

    Cool! I've been watching the threads since you started. I have to say, it looks great! The heater shields were a great touch.

    Uh oh, it's a ghost train! :eek:

    But a very cute one. :)

    On a side note; have you tried using composite bows to "connect" the wheels? I don't know if they will allign properly though.

    Adding the small tables & passengers helped with the "floaty" detached feeling of the roofs of the back cars. Good move on that.

    I too want to see smoke puffs! Ghoul, gorilla, & mongbat should feel like they are going somewhere! :D

    Ha, just poke Larisa(?) with a stick, and I'm sure she'd repost her pics of her mega trees (made by stacking holiday trees) in her decked out holiday castle. It used to be on the old forums, but gone bye bye.

    Also, the 2004 holiday housing contest winner house, that they added in the vet rewards, had an amazing monster tree as a feature. Perhaps someone has a pic of that one as well.

    a lot of things didn't sit well. i used the katana because i liked the slight curve, and it touched both wheels ;)

    i could have sworn i had that one... dont see it now. a picture would be good, yeah.

    i kind of recall that huge tree someone made. i'll wait until xmas to see if the bug bites to make one myself.
  17. Awesome job, feath... brings out my inner child :)
