Håkan,
The mill looks really good. The lights are a good addition.

Thanks Tom, Bob and Horse!

Thanks Tom. I'll try your suggestion. I have done that on another project with tinting an epoxy lens. But it hadnt occured to me that I could do it this way.

Håkan, your sawmill looks like it's between a rock & a soon to be wet place.
It's really going to be a point of interest, on your layout.
I think it was a must, to light that working space in your sawmill, and I'm glad that you did do it in the end.(Even though it's not time appropriate)
It makes it so much easier to see all of your wonderful detailing inside of it, in daytime or night.
Now you just have to add a little animation, and get that blade spinning around in there!

Thanks Bob, to much real life projects with work and building a closed in porch for the house. I managed a little work on the pond and at the moment I'm sealing the surface so not my (way to expensive epoxy ) surfaces on the floor. Apart from that I have been messing with a small fun project which is putting sound in a Bmann Lafayette.

Thanks Greg! I have started sneaking in lights in more and more buildings. I have to pass on the animation as I would I have to do surgery close to a heart transplant to manage it. But I'm contemplating adding sound effects in the future.

Off to bed.

Fine sawmill! I have used nail varnish for tinting the LEDs...always fun to ask for deep orange nail varnish in the drugstore ;) And adding sound is highly recommended! Hide speakers in the scenery and on the back of structures for later use! I have covered a couple of speakers with screen netting, then landscaped the netting with grass and weeds... Pricom have enlarged their selection of Dream Players, including a couple with built-in amplifiers, so you can use ordinary, small speakers... I just replaced one of my four original Dream Players with their tiny Lite version, and it works perfectly. Fantasonics have a large selection of sounds from all eras, and for most locations. No affiliation!

Thanks Frederic! Not the best lights to work under though[:-bulb]

Thanks Troels for your kind words and the nail polish and sounds tip! I had thought I could place some speakers below the layout. I have to look into it further. With experience it is hard doing surgery after everything is in place.

I promised Bob I show the porch. Not sure I'm naming it correctly in English with covered porch. Anyway here is a photo of our nearly finished. Just some minor tweaks putting in locks etc. and then we can use it during rainy days. Sorry about the mess around it.
