Why is smiling malevolence always scarier, or is it? For me the smiling face is always more creepy and sinister, those designs will be great new additions.
There you go, I had a feeling the tamping was the key. I can only imagine a skilled operator slamming the flat side of that bucket on the ground. Some people are artists on graders and backhoes, it's definately not a first day skill.

Mine Car progress
I thought I would share some pics of the mine car I am building to go out in front of the Mine Shaft entrance. It still needs wheels and a little more detail work but you can get the idea I was going for. Most of what I used to build this was leftover wood scraps & junk laying around the H.O. build site. I always enjoy trying to make something from almost nothing!
I'm sorry if you can't see these pics forum guests but photo bucket doesn't seem to like me...
Cool mine car Tom!
Here are a few more photos.
Mr Ded in front of the mine.
Talk about a gold mine! We found these old cars and a truck down a steep embankment on another part of the farm. Thank God for the excavator to get them out. I didn't want these to go to waste. They look awesome in the woods and I have a great scare planned for that scene. It got too dark to take a photo of the whole scene the way the cars are set up now but here is the process of getting the rusted hulks out and into position.
Work, Work! Looking good my friend! Shane and its keep it up! Shane this time!
How long is your trail Eric? With all this stuff it looks like it would be a mile or more long. Its really looking great! I would love to see it. What is your big reaper head made of? Looks really cool!
