Lovely looking little model Matthew, the details make for a great scene, since this is a work in progress I don't see anything to be critical about.

Wow, Matthew! You made an excellent job of that stove. I have seen lots of stoves with 8" pipe, so you're not that far off. The thing is, it has to look right to you.

The old pioneers in the boonies considered themselves lucky to have pipe at all. Most stoves have an 8" oval port on them and you would need an adapter to take it down to 6".

Make sure there is enough room for the ladder up the wall. The beds are shaping up good too.

Hi all,

Here is my humble contribution. It is based on a standpipe at Kincaid on the Victorian Railways (Australia) 2' 6" line from Colac to Crowes. The diameter of the base is 2 3/4". The pipe fittings are from Western Scale Models, the valve gland nut is NBW and the wheel is a brake wheel both from Ian Lindsay Models (Australia). The hose is made from a teabag, the rope is the teabag string, and the weeds/grass is a mix of carpet underlay, Woodlands "field grass", and goodies from a fly tying shop, which include, moose, deer, elk & kangaroo fur. The track is Shinohara Code 60 HOn30.

That is a wonderful looking little diorama Rod, thanks for your contribution. Weathering on the pipes is top notch.

Rod,

Nice little scene. The subtle weathering on the pipe, hose and valves is right there with Mr Doan.

Weeds, look great with all that wolf hair, etc.

That's one terrific PBL. I like what you have done with it. I also like how you modeled a specific thing from the real world. I shall have to give that idea a go some time.

Great effort everyone, there's still 8 days to go so if you still want to display your achievements it's time to do so.

P.S. Don't forget to post your final pictures in this thread:
