Rich,

Thanks. It is always a challenge to find structures and work the scenery to fit the west. I think Martins Machine is one of those kits that can fit into any setting. It sure looks at home here. I am very please with the way it turned out.

That is one fine job from the structure to the diorama, first class work. Thanks for sharing - looking forward to seeing it planted.

Well done Gregg.

Regards, Richard



Richard,

Thanks for the compliments on the diorama and photography. The mountain is out my front door, the creek is in the back. I took the shots with the diorama sitting on top of a short ladder, aligned with the backdrop.

Oh, and I better let my wife know that you and Mary Beth will be here this summer. (smile)

Very nicely done it fits right in with the scenery. Looks very natural really like the trees. I'm sure when Bob sees this he'll want a pair of boots and a cowboy hat and then open up SRMW West

Slim,

Thanks. It always surprises me how natural sunlight makes the dioramas come to life.

Thanks Jerry. Yes, Bob will not only be buying those boots and hat, but a Harley vest as well. We don't need no stink'n sleeves out west!!

Scott,

I wasn't holding out on you. I was searching the internet one day and stumbled across three "Building Craftman Structure Kits" DVD's, which are helping so much!!!

Gregg, that is one outstanding looking diorama. Both the structure and scenery look very natural and realistic. Your photography is also excellent. Well done.

I LOVE structures like this that fit into the terrain.
Very well engineered and executed!

Rick,

Thanks for the praise. A large share of the credit goes to Jim Lucas, as well as to Bob for designing a great kit. You cannot go wrong with this one.

Thanks Jimmy. The Thorndike Mills will be sitting downstream a ways from this Martin Machine. The original design was modified to fit the sloping terrain. I will post pictures of it after I finish the weathering, detailing and landscaping.

Thanks Ken, but that credit should go to Bob for the kit design. This one has only minor changes to the diorama plans in the kit instuctions. I agree with you, Martin Machine is a great design.
