New episodes ROCK! (awww... I see what I did there... Scenery? Rock?)

Okay... I'll stop now. (great episode, as usual)

Looks great. You make it look so easy.

...I'm particularly interested in how to minimize the separation lines between modules, and how to achieve a seamless look (in terms of coloraion and scenery texture) across module boundaries. Will module-to-module interfaces be discussed at some point, as regards trackwork and scenery? Electrical already was, at least to an extent.

Meanwhile, very good general scenery tutorial!

I've often heard that Fran & Miles Hale put on the best clinics, and I feel like I've just got the chance to see them in that setting, (even if it was on video). Fran & Miles are such great teachers, I try to watch any program Miles is a part of because I know I'm going to learn something. Just recently I completed a structure and colored it using artists pastel crayons, a technique which Miles demonstrated in one of his videos. The results were spectacular, my building looks like an old dilapidated barn, ( well that's what it is), but it really looks like one! And it was so easy, I had to rewatch Mile's video because I was afraid I was doing it wrong but nope I did it right. Thank you Fran & Miles for being great teachers of everything model railroading.
