I have been following this great model you are building. Everything is coming together to make a great scene. I noticed the two birds in the last photos. Outstanding modeling with so many great small details every where you look. Thanks for posting your model and taking so much time explaining your building methods.

Thank you Mike, and also to all who have responded. I believe that this forum is not just about showing the models, but showing how they were done, which I hope, would help many new-comers as well as seasoned modelers who may not have thought of something the way I or others have. Thank you all.

This might be my last post for a while, taking a small break, since I started this some 2 plus years ago, I's is getting a little burnt out on it. I have some details I want to add, and that will come later, and I might start on another model to clear my mind off this one for a bit, but not sure what I want to build. I thought of doing the Sierra West HO backwoods cars, since I will be doing them for this scene eventually, but for now, just taking a little break. I have started back into reading, which I like doing, two novels in less than 3 weeks, both very good: Warday and Nightfall. Started on another (Emerald Decision by Craig Thomas), while reading a 4th, The Story of Britain by Rebecca Fraser, got 100 pages in on that so far.

But before I go altogether, I wanted to show you the latest I have done, the smoke stacks. I opted to leave the tops open, as I have seen many photos the same way, and it looks neater than having a cone on top. Personal choice.

They are brass tubing, 1/4", with synthetic thread for guy wires. I used Grandt Line eye-rings for the tie-downs.

I'll still be following my thread in case anyone wants to comment, that won't go. Plus, I also wanted to mention that I went to see War Eagle Mill this last weekend (on our way home) for my birthday weekend, staying in Eureka Springs, a cabin located in the woods; Red Bud Valley. It is a grain mill, and they grind their own grains, mostly wheat, of which I always bring home a 10lb bag of whole wheat flour to make bread. Always so good. That said, I took a lot of pictures of the mill, the adjacent bridge, inside the mill (with working belts from the water wheel), and some scenic surrounding area. If there is enough interest, I'll post some pictures on a separate thread.

So, here are my last pictures for now:

Great SBS thread Tony. Inspired me to try my hand at following by building an engine house and using your techniques.

Know exactly what you mean by needing a break from such intense modeling work. Will patiently be waiting for your next build.

Thank you Bernd. It has been a long journey, one that has been both enjoyable and, as usual, frustrating at times. I am glad you have found some inspiration to do the same. When I get this one snuggled into a slightly larger diorama, Iíll be adding a few more details to the exterior. One thing I still want to add is some lighting. Not sure how to go about it yet.
